|Marine Khaki Cotton Uniform|
This is the Summer Service uniform which at the beginning of WWII consisted of shirt, tie, trousers, belt, and hat. This uniform was the common uniform worn early in WWII by Marines stationed in the pacific at locations such as Wake Island, Pearl Harbor, Philippines, etc. The shirts were historically made from a lightweight comfortable cotton shirting and the trousers and hat were made from durable cotton twill.
Our shirt is accurately replicated using a 100% cotton oxford shirting that has been pre-shrunk and is color matched, lightweight, and very comfortable to wear. It is constructed authentically with the distinctive scalloped pocket flaps, characteristic of USMC styling. The fit is consistent with what some Marines term as a "tailored" appearance, meaning the body is tapered for an athletic build. We use 100% cotton thread sewn with a fine needle and tightly stitched for that high quality look. Buttons are solid cast light brown melamine with 4 holes. All body seams were sewn double chain stitch. We also include the white cotton fabric panel behind the buttons characteristic of the WWII era summer shirts. A matching wedge-point tie made of the same shirting material is also available. This shirt was also at times worn under the Winter Service Coat as part of the Winter Service Woolen Uniform in lieu of the mustard wool flannel shirt. Because of the tapered athletic fit, customers with larger ads are advised to order up one size.
The trousers are made 8.5 oz khaki cotton twill in the correct shade of mustard/khaki. Thread is 100% cotton khaki and buttons are solid melamine cast tan color with 4 holes. Construction is authentic with double needle chain stitching on the inseams and outseams.
The Khaki garrison "Piss-Cutter" cap is made of the same khaki twill with rounded corners and insignia eyelet.
$30.00 Khaki "Piss-Cutter" Garrison Cap.
$10.00 Khaki Wedge Point Tie.
$25.00 Khaki Web Belt with USMC Brass Buckle and tip.
