This WWII Airborne T shirt is a reproduction from an original WWII design and is screened by hand and variation in colors naturally occur.
The shirt says “U. S. Army Paratroops” with the Airborne jump wings, also known as “chute and wings”. We’ve seen several photos of these jump wing shirts with and without the various airborne training camps. They were worn by all Airborne units, including the 11th Airborne Division, 13th Airborne Division, 82nd Airborne Division, and the 101st Airborne Division.
During WWII, athletic style t shirts were available for purchase at the PX and were commonly used in training and athletic situations. PT shirts with a variety of different unit logos are well documented in many WWII photographs.
In addition, our WII Reproduction PT shirts have a spec tag screened inside the neck.
Just like the original tee shirts, this reproduction is 100% cotton with a period correct narrow 5/8″ neck, shorter sleeves and a slim/snug fit. These WWII Reproductions are true to size. This WWII Airborne t-shirt comes in men’s sizes. Women’s sizes are available upon request. Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
