The old "Farfartröja", Swedish for "Granpa's Shirt" is a no-nonsense, crew-necked shirt with a button-up collar. In all honesty, the model was very ubiquitous back in the day and is fashionable even today under the moniker "Henley Shirt". It has certainly stood the test of time quite well!

The old "Farfartröja", Swedish for "Granpa's Shirt" is a no-nonsense, crew-necked shirt with a button-up collar. In all honesty, the model was very ubiquitous back in the day and is fashionable even today under the moniker "Henley Shirt". It has certainly stood the test of time quite well!

The model is really close to one of the '30s German ones, which raises suspicions as the Swedes have normally sided with the good guys. Hmm!

Wear this shirt when chopping wood, building a house, working in your fields, and other hardy shit, or as a carefree shirt to wear when spending time in the woods. We suggest combining it with wool pants, jackboots, and foul language.

Material

The material is very durable cotton. However, the seemingly thick material has a twist: it's loose-knit which makes it naturally stretchy, like a dense net! The shirt is rather comfortable to wear, breathable, and relatively fast-drying. Don't expect miracles, though - cotton is always cotton.

You can machine-wash the shirt in warm or even hot water. Then again, shirts like these should have a definite odor of sweat, smoke, and the bush.

Size system

The original Swedish sizes are either impossible to read or just plain silly but we have roughly converted all to European sizes. The weave is quite stretchy, making these somewhat forgiving. The sleeves are all short; in the old days, they would not have revealed full-sleeve tattoos and whatnot.

Rough conversion from EU to US jacket sizes

Swedish army surplus

The latest batch is mostly unissued or lightly used but has seen a lot of storage so they are not "as new". The exact color shade may vary..

Great old timey shirts. I ordered two and they were quite different from each other. They fit great and they have that awesome surplus smell - old surplus - like a museum.

Tulipa hyvä mieli kun huomasin, että näitä on taas saatavilla! Mainio, monikäyttöinen ja omalla karhealla tavallaan tyylikäskin paita. Muutama vuosi sitten hommaamani yksilöt ovat edelleen hyvässä kunnossa, mutta ajan hampaan varalle hommaan kyllä vielä pari lisää.

Scruffy good. Before wearing I recommend a soak in cold water and line drying with Mr.Sun.

Got one through a group order, and whatever magic is imbued within these ancient threads actually makes you feel more badass. Very comfortable. Took over three years before they came back in stock, and just in time - my first one was wearing out. Not knowing when they would re-stock (if ever) I promptly ordered four more. Had a small hiccup, which was promptly fixed by Leka's awesome staff. If I could get away with it, I'd wear these every day. Some say that the modern Henley-style shirts are the same - they do not compare for fit or feel. Buy while you can, and savour.

These fit great except being too short or me being too tall, the sleeves will always be rolled. Mine had a single crown stamp so it should be made during the war years, neat!

Me and friends ordered 6 of them (Yes, we're the reason they're out of stock. No we are not sorry). The fabric is nice and solid, softened by the years, and generally you feel great in these. Might come with some stiched hole or something, but if you're not the type of person that think that this is a plus, those shirts aren't for you. As that other commenter said, they DO make you feel more badass.

The one downside that isn't really one is that the sleeves really are short (like, they only go a third of the way beyond my elbow), so it's pretty much a rolled-up shirt only thing.

So yeah, I totally endorse paying 13 bucks for a old, smelly, patched-up shirt with deficient sleeves. Not kidding.

The price might be a bit off putting for some people (Was for me at the start). But it is worth every cent you pay for it. It is a great solid shirt. For me the sleeves are not short since Im not a big lad. The shirt fits me great. This is definitely my favourite shirt. Amazing shirt for the price I reccomend it to anyone looking for a good vintage shirt.

Jumankokkelis, että on mainio paita pikkupakkasille. Tai miksei myös ihan kotioloihin? Muutaman asteen pakkasissa tämä ja ulkotakki riittää ainakin hiemankin liikunnallisemmassa hommassa, paidan huokoisesta kankaasta johtuen. Kangas säilöö kehon lämmön verkkopaitamaisesti.
Erittäin mukava päällä vaikka nopealla vilkaisulla näyttää aika sarkamaiselle.
Ainoa miinus, että koot ovat aika pieniä, joten olen pakotettu tilaamaan paitoja lisää suuremmassa koossa. Nykyinen 42 on hieman "too sexy".
