The French make their long sleeve shirts just as well as the Germans, maybe even better. A superior choice for every activity where you need a durable cotton shirt with long sleeves and don't mind it being French. Used, but intact and washed.

The French make their long sleeve shirts just as well as the Germans, maybe even better. A superior choice for every activity where you need a durable cotton shirt with long sleeves and don't mind it being French. Used, but intact and washed.

The most technical features of this shirt are the tall zippered collar and button-up cuffs. The natural elasticity and softness of the cotton weave used on these makes this probably the most comfortable long sleeve top ever made. The colour shade is greenish gray, won't provoke strong thoughts and blends in the world around you, unless it's an urban battlefield of young people in slim-fit suits.

A cotton shirt is fine for everyday use on its own. For higher activity levels, a moisture-wicking shirt underneath is a good idea. Being cheap and durable, these make for excellent work shirts if you plan on doing something else than sitting in front of a computer screen. Or hey, why shouldn't they work in that too?

Material and care

Made of 100 % veeery comfy cotton (we can't stress this enough), machine wash at 60 degrees Celsius.

Size info

Sizes indicate the user's recommended chest circumference in centimetres but we've converted them to inches for your convenience. The fit is a bit on the tight side but certainly not compressive so if you're smack in between two sizes, pick the smaller one for a tight fit or the larger one for a regular fit. Again, the fabric is slightly elastic thanks to the weave style.

Lengthwise, these are good for "regular" people up to about 180 cm or 6' tall. If you need to, pick a larger size for more sleeve length as the shoulder seam drapes a bit lower. Alternatively, just don't give a damn.

French military surplus

Used, washed, in good condition. Army clothes aren't single-use fashion trinkets but durable enough to be passed on from one user to another.

This is a better fit than the German turtleneck shirts, given its long hem and it has no odor retaining problems. However I will say that part of the stitching on the hem bottom is unraveling on the left side, a problem that I haven't had yet with the German shirts. YMMV for this one--it seems like I got unlucky here.

These are a bargain, especially if you don't have long arms. I wear a US size 16" neck, 35" sleeve dress shirt and 44 or 46 suit. The size 104 shirt I ordered is tight but bearable across the chest and neck, but the sleeves are really short. As the helpful instructions suggest, "[P]ick a larger size for more sleeve length as the shoulder seam drapes a bit lower. Alternatively, just don't give a damn." I'm ordering another one of these in size 120.
I've found this a great shirt to wear on cool mornings when expecting warmer weather. Even if the cotton material gets wet from sweat, it won't make me too cold after the sun rises.
[Edited to add] I just got the size 120. Alas, being 188 cm in height means I'm abnormal to the French. Too bad there isn't an equivalent surplus Danish surplus shirt. While size 120 gives me more room around the chest and shoulders, the sleeves are still short and make my arms look like they belong to an orangutan. It's still a good shirt and a bargain. I will wear either when out for a walk in the cool of the morning or evening.
