One of the rarest pieces of military clothing, particularly military denim out there. This is a 1918 model brown denim jumper. Similar in design to the much more common brown denim of the pre-ww2 period, these were issued first in a light brown around the end of WW1. Used for fatigue wear for only a few years before being replaced completely by blue, the brown denim variations are now extremely hard to find and much sought-after by collector of militaria and denim alike.
This is used but good condition. The denim is still surprisingly thick and strong. Both the label in the pocket is present, as is the still readable Union Made tag. The top button is unfortunately missing, and there seems to be a period repair to the bottom of the button placket, but there is no other damage or holes. As with many denim pieces of the period, there is a faint western costume stamp, so this was one of the many the survived the intervening 100 years living in their extensive collection of period pieces.
