Regular price £80.00

Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.

An original US WW2 era Officer's Four Pocket dress tunic.  An interesting piece, has some wear and tear around the armpits inside, probably a result of it's unusual use...

The label in the pocket shows the tunic tailored by The Horstmann Uniform Company of Philadelphia and has a date of 10 September 1936.  The exterior of the tunic is well presented but it only has two buttons and no belt, believed to have been tailored this way to make it easier for the many, many GIs who must have tried the sample on for fit and quality. One bottom pocket button is missing. Exterior is otherwise well presented and clean, presumably the tunic never left the tailor's shop whilst it was still in use.

Size is an approximate 38" chest.
