US M-1951 wool shirt, surplus
US M-1951 wool service shirts. Works well in field or town and doesn't look like a potato sack like modern fleece jackets! A thick, warm shirt or a light jacket, any which way you want to use it.
The classic Korean War style field shirt is just like most flannel shirts, but made of relatively thick wool, or wool & nylon blend (most are 80% wool and 20% nylon). Wash by hand in lukewarm water. Air dry only!
Sizes according to user's height and chest circumference. There are no different height sizes, all seem to be about a size Regular. Good for max 180 cm tall and shorter. Taller people will just have to make do with shorter sleeves. They can also be rolled up.
US army surplus
Used hard. Most have a few small holes in the fabric and other signs of use, like "US ARMY" patches.

Looks great. It has a very rich, dark, olive darb color and a heavy wool fabric texture.
Thick wool and rather warm, more of a light jacket than a shirt in my oppinion.
On the downside it's a bit short and very hard to keep tucked in. Maybe is's not supposed to be tucked in at all.
Both the body length and the sleeves are short. I myself is 175 cm tall.
However after a good soak, I was able to strech the shirt a bit and gaind about 4 cm arm length and a bit on the body as well.

Vaihdatan pirtsakamman näköiset napit ni tästä saa iloisen syystakin. Toimii varmaan Suomen kesässäkin.

The one I have arrived in perfect condition.
Woulf you buy something like this from a fancy brand, you'll easily pay over €200.

I was nervous about how it would arrive and what repairs might be needed but there were none whatsoever!
No patches, no holes. Just pure quality.
Sleeves were a tad short, I'm 181cm, 94cm chest and the sleeves sit around 2cm from where I'd like them to be. They are right when they say they're suited to max 180cm. Obviously you can wear them if you are taller but you will need to roll up the sleeves.
Thick, warm wool, robust and heavy duty. Great for civvy use, and for out in the forest.
Going to have to buy more!

I did have a bit of an issue on sizing, the first one was snug on me, and I have a chest an inch smaller that the supposed maximum size. Anyway, I decided that it was OK if slightly smaller than I would have liked and so bought 2 more (not from you, I found somewhere cheaper in the UK). The 2 new shirts were significantly bigger, despite all claiming to be medium.
All 3 had different labelling, the first just had a small tag with “M” at the collar, the other 2 had more conventional military labelling (one printed on in red, one stitched on in black on white).
I suggest you check your stock, and if there are any more with the “M” label consider marketing them as a different size.

You're likely going to get a wrinkled shirt. Iron with your iron set to "wool" with a cloth cover over the affected surfaces.

That said, I am super happy with it. It is well worth what I paid. Mine is 90% wool and 10% nylon, so higher wool content than usual (not sure if that makes it older or what). It is definitely meant to be worn as an overshirt. I got the S size, and I typically wear an S in American stuff. Sometimes S is a little big for me. This is a little big, but, again, is made to be an overshirt. It is definitely not very boxy or potato sacky. For me personally, it fits well and isn't baggy. It's not tight either.
It's warm, sort of like a thin sweater, but warmer than a typical overshirt. I wouldn't say it's as warm as a jacket, however.
It is itchy! Wool is itchy, unless it's the fancy new Merino stuff. That's life. I wear it with long sleeve shirts for this reason, and even then, it itches my neck a little. It's not bad though.
One point of contention. I machine-washed mine (cold wash, normal cycle) with no issues; I also machine dried it on low. It's totally fine. The collar got really sort of supple rather than stiff, but other than that, it seems unchanged except for being cleaner and fluffier. I did not even notice any shrinkage, but maybe I forgot how it fit prior to washing. It's about perfect now.

shorter sleeves can be a benefit in some regards as your sleeves will never slip down into the jam sandwich you are making.
mine came in great condition! it's a simple useful design, will try to snag an XL next time as my chest is 114cm and the L is snug.
