Shirt, Flannel, OD, M1937
This page was last updated: April 15, 2013
 


This is the standard issue enlisted man's shirt from the earlier campaigns of WWII.  Eventually this style of shirt was replaced by another OD flannel shirt with an open collar style called the Convertible Collar shirt (shown below).  By the Normandy invasion in the summer of 1944 the CC style shirt had replaced most of the M37 style shirts, though many M37 shirts were still being used up to the end of WWII.   The M37 shirt does retain a much sharper appearance when wearing a coat and tie due to the two-piece collar and stand and front and cuff button plaquets design.  This shirt does NOT include a gas flap.  Historically, the M37 shirt pattern was common until approximately 1943 when the Army changed to the convertible collar style thereafter.

Our OD wool shirts are soft and comfortable!  Indeed many of our customers were pleasantly surprised how our custom woven high quality 100% wool can feel so very soft to the touch.  Buttons are durable solid cast melamine and all seams are stitched with pride using 100% cotton thread.  We also include a beautifully replicated QM inspector tag.

This shirt design fits snug.  If in doubt order up one size to assure room in the body.

Shirt, Flannel, OD, Convertible Collar


 


This is the standard issue enlisted man's shirt from the mid to later campaigns of WWII.  Eventually this style of shirt replaced the earlier M37 OD flannel shirt.  In contrast to the earlier shirt, the CC shirt offer better protection when the soldier was exposed to dangerous gases while on the battlefield.  Additional flaps along the front opening and cuff gussets were installed to cover exposed skin areas.  In many instances the flaps were removed by soldiers for sake of comfort.  We included them in order to offer an authentic replica.  Historically, the M37 shirt pattern was common until approximately 1943 when the Army changed to the convertible collar style thereafter.

The fit of this shirt pattern is very roomy.  Indeed this shirt was "boxy" in comparison to the M37 shirt and the collar is not as sharp when wearing a coat or Ike Jacket and tie.  By the end of WWII this design was by far the most common pattern worn by enlisted men.
