How to choose the size?

You should take another shirt that fits you well. Lay it flat to the floor and make measurements using flexible ruler. The first, shoulder width (along the horisontal shoulder seam where shoulder straps should be, and behind the neck). This measurement is a key measurement, others depend on it. We give you also sleeve lenght and neck around for the information.

Description

Grey knitted shirt made of light, well-stretched knitted material. Factory quality. Own production, made in Russia. The shirt is suitable for reenactment and civilian use, especially for outdoor activities and sports, as it reliably covers the lower back (unlike T-shirts).

We offer shirts with 3 types of buttons:

  • Cardboard buttons - used by Germany for cost savings and were common on underwear, camouflage capes, shirts and to hold identification tapes on winter uniforms. With constant washing in the washing machine, they will lose their appearance and may collapse. Clothes with such buttons must be washed by hand, or the buttons must be replaced over time. In this case, you choose authenticity.
  • Steel buttons are a copy of the Wehrmacht “plate” buttons. Made of steel and coated with zinc. Reliable, durable.
  • Black plastic buttons are easy to handle, not afraid of water, and not cold to the touch.

Select the size and type of buttons you want next to the "Add to cart" button. Then click "Add to cart" to add the selected shirt option to your Shopping Cart (include it in your order). If the size with the desired button type is not listed, it has already sold out and is currently out of stock.

The photo shows the shades of shirts. Color from gray to dark gray. The product photo also shows different shades.

Before creating the shirt, the details of the original shirts were studied and taken into account. German military shirts of that time (except tropical ones) were characterized by thin and long collar ends. This is exactly what is done on our copy. Some of the original shirts had a crease on the chest (just below the button placket). The study of the original samples shows that such a fold is more typical for later samples (already with pockets), so there is no fold on this shirt.

At the collar, a paper label is sewn. The inscription Trikothemd (German: knitted shirt) and the size in European system. The label is easy to remove before using the shirt.

What is markdown?

Two size 54 shirts have a small hole on the back (about 2 mm in diameter). The hole can be mended or left as it is. Photos on request. These shirts are sold cheaper.

Historical reference.

Grey shirt replaced the white colarless shirt, which was part of the underwear set of the Wehrmacht, SS and Luftwaffe until 1941. The original material was called Aertex and contained a lot of viscose (fibers synthesized from wood). Viscose absorbs water better than cotton, herewith requires careful washing and ironing, otherwise it can stretch and even tear. So original shirts were rapidly losing its form (in addition to they were cut like a robe, to not to hamper the movements). German producers had no another choice, cotton was scarce, and viscose used everywhere instead of it.
