Just got one of these off the ‘bay & have to say it’s a pretty good shirt for £23! Labelled as 80% wool & 20% nylon it’s a good thickness - olive green of course, supposedly issued as a cold weather shirt for the Korean War.
The size is 37” - 41” but it’s a good 43” across the chest with roomy & longish arms, 2 large chest pockets. A good Winter shirt for not a lot of money & well worth a look. Cheers

Mine arrived today, looked like new! Bigger than I thought (labelled 37-41") but fitted me nicely over a couple layers and I'm 5ft 10" and 44" chest. Very happy - was thinking of buying the Swanndri from Ray for £85, this is pretty much identical for £20!!!!!
Labelled 90 wool 10% nylon and a lovely "outdoor" green :)

Yes, it's not a long shirt but I quite like that as it's not a base layer. The arms are just right for me - I'd certainly have bought a larger size if they were still available (and I've looked!!!) but this was much larger than I was expecting.
