The M42 is the 2nd pattern of the HBT shirt from the US Military, dating from the 1940s. Classic timeless 2 large pocket design. This example remains unworn, and complete with cutters tags still attached in completely deadstock condition. Orignal label is present and legible, dating it to 1944. A really rare survivor.
In great vintage condition, Deadstock. This piece is over 75 years old.
Although all items are usually washed and steamed prior to sale, this piece has not been as expected given it still has its cardboard cutters tags. Please study all photos provided and request any extra pictures if required.
