You take the Bundesheer M-1975 field shirt, make a few tiny alterations and change the material to wool. Thus the greatest shirt known to man is born. Works anywhere from dark forests to wedding parties, or wedding parties in dark forests like we mostly have in Finland.

  • A straightforward field shirt
  • 65/30/5 % wool/polyester/other blend
  • Fabric made in Italy, shirt manufactured in Estonia

The best shirt you'll ever have

As a natural extension to the Wool Flannel Shirt lineup we made a bit heftier and solid colour one and simply decided to call it the Wool Field Shirt. This shirt is the nightmare of low cost & low-quality superbrands: made in Estonia (our Southern neighbour), while the fabric comes from Italy, and the end price being way cheaper than with most similar shirts. What's worst, this shirt you probably only have to buy once, it's so well made. Damnit! Is this good for business?

Available colours are black and stonegray olive.

No planned obsolescence here!

We made this shirt simple, sturdy and sensible: there's a pair of regular breast pockets large enough for most phones. The inside of the cuffs and collar are made of a cotton-polyester blend for durability and comfort. The hem can be tucked in or worn outside of the trousers, while the cuffs can be opened and the sleeves rolled up.

This shirt works as is in chillier weather or as a warm layer under a shell jacket, and even feels pretty cuddly when wet. You'll learn to love it.

Fabric and care

The fabric is made of 65 % recycled wool, 30 % polyester and 5 % other fibres (estimate of the unknown fibres among the recycled materials). Wash at 30 degrees Celsius, hang to dry. Use of wool care products advisable but not mandatory. Rarely you indeed need to wash this glorious shirt, as the large wool content keeps it odour-free pretty well and just airing out is usually enough.

Sizing

We have listed first the easy size, then the user's recommended measurements: user height and chest circumference. The cut is pretty straight.

In the chart below you can see the actual measurements taken directly from the shirt itself: chest circumference, back length from base of the collar to the hem and sleeve length from shoulder seam to cuff. The measurements below are NOT the recommended user's measurements, but measurements of the garment itself.

Noniin elikkäs. Posti toi tänään Lekafest päivänä tilatun villakenttäpuseron, jota olin kuolannut siitä hetkestä, kun se internettiin ilmestyi.

Paita ulos paketista ja ensitunnelmat paidasta:
Materiaali on tosi kivan tuntuista pehmeää villakangasta. Ja nimenomaan pehmeää ja taipuisaa paitakangasta, eikä sarkatyyppistä kankeaa peltiä. Paksuudeltaan ehkä keskiverto puuvillaflanellin luokkaa. Ihoa vasten villa kutittelee hieman, mutta ei ainakaan omaan nahkaan liian häiritsevästi. Pitkähihainen alupaita toki ratkaisee asian.

Kangas ominaisuuksiltaan on joko hyvä tai huono juttu käyttötarkoituksesta riippuen. Jos luulit saavasi tuhdin, jopa takista käyvän villakuoren, petyt. Jos taas hakusessa on lämmin flanellipaidan, välikerroksen, paitatakin tai viileän kesäillan pitkähihainen, on materiaali juuri loistavaa.

Äkkiseltään kangas vaikuttaa ilmavalta ja varmasti hengittää hyvin, tosin tuulen pitävyyden kanssa voi olla niin ja näin.

Työn jälki kokonaisuudessaan vaikuttaa erinomaiselta. Ompeleet ovat laadukkaan oloisia, eikä ohitikkauksia tms ainakaan omasta kappaleesta löytynyt.

No miksi sitten 4 tähteä täyden 5 sijaan?

Syy on leikkaus. Itse valitsin 112cm rinnanympäryksellä (181cm/92kg) XL regular koon ohjeen mukaisesti. Jokseenkin harteikkaana koko osui hartiaseudun, käsien ja selän osalta nappiin. Kerrankin paita, joka istuu hartioista hyvin, ei kinnaa selästä ja käsiä kelpaa ojennella ilman, että hihansuut nousevat kyynärpäihin.

Leikkausta kehutaan melko suoraksi, mutta omasta mielestäni se ei enää voisi olla suorempi. Itsellä paita jää alaosastaan armottomasti liian leveäksi, jopa lepattavaksi. Etenkin takaosa pönkittää seistessä taaksepäin, koska "ylimääräistä" kangasta on niin paljon.

Ja ei, kyse ei ole siitä, että haluaisin paidan olevan slimfit, vaan paita tuntuu suorastaan levenevän kainaloista alaspäin. Helmasta itse hieman kaventamalla paidasta saa varmasti toimivan, jotta pysyy tuulikin poissa paidan alta. Toisaalta myös vatsakkaat uskaltavat varmasti tilata sopivan paidan pelkän rinnanympäryksen perusteella.

Toinen puute leikkauksessa on se, että käsiä ylös nostaessa muu paita tuntuu nousevan mukana. Ehkä aikanaan mk2 -malliin voisi leikkausta vielä hieman hioa.

Vihreä väri on kuitenkin mukavan murrettu ja villakangankaan tekstuuri pääsee paidassa oikeuksiinsa. Pienistä leikkauksen puutteita huolimatta ensivaikutelma paidasta on oikein hyvä. Pienellä muokkauksella lienee oiva syyspaita.

I am an Austrian guy who used the M-1975 Shirt during my service time in the eatly 90th.
I liked the idea to get a re-engineered high quality shirt, shipping to Austria was very fast and the wool short exceeded my expectations.

It is definitly classes better tahn the original, perfect tailored and offers a kind of retro look. Not itching or with or without shirt,
perfect material, not too stiff but not to thin, i ordered XL and it fits perfect to me (1.88cm, 95 kg); the only problem was that my Wife
took it immediatly away from me as she liked the shirt as well.

She intends to the shirt for hiking / outside in late autoum and early spring.

Great work Varusteleka !!

Excellent work! The material manages to both feel thicker and softer than the Sarma wool flannel. The fit is also much better. Whereas the flannel is somewhat form fitting, this is looser, allowing full freedom of movement and a nice thick baselayer underneath, without, at the same time, appearing too large if just worn with a t-shirt. An almost perfect shirt! One concern is that the elbow areas could get worn out, so I do wish the elbows were reinforced with cordura or even some polycotton ripstop. The other issue is not the fault of the shirt, and that is that the damn global warming will prevent me from wearing this a couple months out of the year.

Jokapaikan paita heti kun tippuu alle 15 asteen. Yksinkertaisuudessaan kaunista ja mukavaa ylläpidettävää ei tästä mitään pahaa pysty sanomaan.

Brilliant, warm, blocks a fair amount of wind, looks great and the fit is spot on for me. I pair it with a Sarma merino base layer which helps to deal with some of the wool itch (which is next to nothing, I just have baby soft sensitive skin). I am now saving up for the green one!

I have the Large-regular and it fits great. It's softer than I thought and looks good. Slightly thicker than I expected from a shirt butt that's a positive. Also does not limit movement at all.
