Which one you after? There was the itchy and scratchy, the Ben Sherman and the Cheap as fook one that came after that.

You after new or second hand?
What size?

its a replacement for my old one, which now has a hole so big in the back that i can fit my fist through it. However, the one i've got now has off-black buttons and is a lighter colourand quite soft, whereas some i have now found look darker, the buttons are a sort of green-clear, and the material looks stiffer. Are thease a newer version or a different sort of shirt?

Not like an issue blanket, the fabric is quite soft, and its been washed so many times the label is now completelly blank.

the one ive got right now has a 38 inch collar.

No idea about chest size - still in the wrappers they were issued in 10-12 years ago.
Shirt Mans General Service Olive Size 41/43 (collar Range). Next size up by the look of it.

Suit the more mature individual rather than a young buck.

Fabric like an army blanket? - That'd be the Shirt KF. Fcuking dreadful things. (never did find out what 'KF' stood for, but learnt to curse the inventor whilst having to wear them under a Jersey Heavy Wool in Gibraltar in April before we were allowed into Shirt Sleeve Order.)

Never heard of a Shirt OD - but we used to wear Shirts OG.

Khaki Fatigue.

Excellent shirts, especially the earlier version that only buttoned halfway down, but never seemed to have sleeves that extended beyond your elbow.

I still have a couple that I use for work when it's particularly cold but, being about 30 years old, have had to get the wife to reverse the collars due to threadbareness.

The shirts OG replaced KF in the 80's. Were the jungle issue shirts of the 50's and 60's referenced OD?

I always thought that KF stood for Knitted Fabric.

Totally horrible until washed a zillion times, but we never had anything else, and were pretty cluless about fashion in the 70's* so we just put up with it I suppose.

* Penny Collars. High waistband trousers. Tank tops... You get the idea. :D
