Finnish M36 wool tunic #12
A war-time issue Finnish M36 tunic. This has a more coarse diagonal weave wool fabric, cotton and metal buttons. Marked "Int 41 50 A SA", which means it's from 1941. Green infantry collar tabs with the rank of Ylivääpeli, but we strongly believe these have been sewn on later, maybe for theatrical purposes.
The size marked on the tunic is 50 A. In reality this is like EU 48. Would fit a person max 172 cm tall, with a chest size of 96 cm, at absolute maximum. Comparable US size about 38S.
Used very little with just a couple of mandatory moth nips and a rip on the middle of the back of the collar, which we repaired by sewing it shut. The side seams were also opened up, probably for some theatrical purpose. We sewed those shut again too. Otherwise this is a fockin' gem for the collection.
