The shawl-collar style buttons up to cut the cold just as it did onboard aircraft carriers in the '40s. Cotton twill canvas-reinforced elbows add durability. Imported.

Imported. Wool with cotton canvas elbows. Men’s sizes M (38-40), L (42-44), XL (46-48), XXL (50-52).

Dry clean or hand-wash cold and dry flat.

It is a great item, as mentioned it would be more presentable if it had a 'V' neck or turtle neck instead of a collar. The color is really Fantatic, how about trying some other military colours example Olive Green like the militray cardigan.

I am very disappointed with this expensive Christmas gift. The wool pills after a few uses as if it were a cheap sweater. I have paid half the price for sweaters made of wool that does not pill. If you are going to buy chinese goods, you need some real quality inspection in place. Remember the tire failures and poisonous dog food incidents?

Do not clean this sweater

      Comments about Wool WWII Military Sweater:

      Enjoyed the authentic look this sweater offers. However, cold water washing and air drying resulted in shrinking. Purchased a second sweater and dry cleaned it, and it still shrunk.

      Bottom line: if you purchase this sweater, do NOT clean it.

        Comments about Wool WWII Military Sweater:

        1. In my immediate family my father and one uncle served as Canadians in the RAF during WWII. My dad followed that with 23 years in the RCAF.
        2. One uncle served in the RN during the war. Another served in the RN, the followed by the Canadian navy after that war.
        3. I spent 3 years as a Canadian kid in the RAF Air Cadets while my dad was stationed in Europe in the early 1960s.
        4. Now, I 'm a Canadian Coast Guard Auxiliary crew member and the sweater compliments my CCGA uniform.

                    Comments about Wool WWII Military Sweater:

                    I'll admit that when buying online the first impression after opening the product is the most important one to me.

                    The color is seldom what I was expecting or hoping for. Next comes size. The lasting (quality) effect is always a gamble I'm willing to take.

                    This sweater from the opening is perfect for me. The color is just what I wanted. It rarely is as pictured .
                    when buying online. If you usually wear a medium: buy the large with this sweater.

                    I've read it "pills". Being ready for that I think I'll order another one of them so I'll have the same new look when this one doesn't look so good. Or maybe mine won't "pill" so bad.

                    This sweater is clearly a first-class item. The handy-work is impressively attractive. It is a true asset for cold weather. Its neutral color makes it usable with most other outwear garments. It looks and feels great to wear.
