Gray Cotton Shirt Size*:


German WWII gray cotton service shirt. The German military issued a rather wide variety of undershirts during the War- fabrics ranged from cotton, wool or rayon knits, to "aertex", to various weights of cotton and cotton/ rayon twills and poplins. Likewise, the colors varied from white, gray, fieldgray and numerous shades of green.

The cotton service shirt is very popular with modern enthusiasts because it is sharper in appearance and easier to clean than the more commonly seen knit types of shirts. These are similar in pattern to the shirts issued to the Afrika Korps and troops fighting on the southern fronts. Shoulderboard loops are provided, but not buttons. This is because most troops did not wear shoulderboards, but adding the button in order to do so is simple.

Shirt Sizing
Measure your neck diameter. If this is a mystery, the best bet is to go to any department store (Dillards, JC Penny, Sears, etc) and have them measure you off. It's very, very easy. The approximate letter size is also listed.
All sleeves are 26".

The sizes run as follows:
Size I = 15" neck (S)
Size II = 16" neck (M)
Size III = 17" neck (L)

Size IV = 18" neck (XL)
Size V = 20" neck (XXL)

Shirt Insignia?
Plain (no insignia) is most typical, but shoulderboards and sleeve or breast eagles are sometimes seen. Occasionally an award appears in period photos, but it's rare.

Washing: Machine or hand wash cold, hang dry.
