Swedish work jacket, gray, surplus
Gentlemen's fashion from our Western neighbour! These work jackets are old - very old - Swedish army issue and still in very usable shape, although a bit rough in appearance.
It's fashionable to look a bit shabby, and this jacket will take care of that for you. These army work jackets are made of thick gray cotton with button-up front and two hem pockets, the jacket doesn't encourage you to pack unnecessary stuff with you. Adjustment strap on the back to finish the fit!
Can be washed in 60 degrees Celsius and being cotton, they soak in dye relatively well but no guarantees about the stitching.
Sizes in the Swedish system (user's recommended chest in centimetres), with user's recommended height and chest in centimetres in the brackets. The height size info is for the anal micromanager kind of people only, as a proper way to use this is to roll up the sleeves.
Like said before, these are old, most probably from the war years but still going strong. All are used, usually faded, repaired and rough but serviceable.

I am 5'6, 36 chest and got the 92 (166-172 / 88-92 cm). The arms actually fit perfectly but the body is a little long. If you are closer to 172, the arms may be short. I like the high armholes. It's a generous fit for the chest. Because of the length and extra room I am wearing it more as a jacket than a shirt. The sunglasses model must be wearing a size down to get that fit. A nice, unpretentious jacket overall. Mine was in used condition with some loose threads and fading but that all adds to it's workmanlike character!
