The older Swedish field service shirt is clearly modeled after an almost identical German one from the 30's. It has certainly stood the test of time quite well! In all honesty the model was very ubiquitous back in the day, and is fashionable even today.
As said, the model is really close to one of the wartime German ones, so this will make for a cheap alternative to go under the wool tunic in re-enactment. If you are lucky, the shirt might even be made during the 40's.
The material is a very durable cotton, which might work OK in summer use, but needs wool, synthetics or mesh under it in winter. However, the seemingly thick material has a twist: it's quite loosely weaved and a bit stretchy too, making the shirt rather comfortable to wear. This also helps speed up drying if the shirt gets wet. Don't expect miracles, though - cotton is always cotton.
The original Swedish sizes are either impossible to read or just plain silly, that's why we have roughly converted all to the Euro chart. The weave is quite stretchy, making these somewhat forgiving. The sleeves are all short, but you're going to roll them up anyway, right?
The fabric colour (natural white, brownish, greenish, gray) and button types (plastic, dish metal, pressed cardboard), little details (cuff style, collar reinforcement if any) vary a bit. All are just as good.
In used and serviceable shape, most actually very good.
We sometimes get a few of these with a proper collar. These are listed separately if available.
