Shirt (used)query

#1
Hi Gang

appro pro of nothing, was the SERVICE OLIVE GREEN SHIRT a replacement for the No2 Dress shirt or a replacement for the old KF itchyback? I'm looking to establish the weight/quality of the olive green as a workshirt for doing shed things etc. :) :)

Many thanks and may I take this opportunity to wish all ARRSErs a very merry and safe xmas

It was a replacement for KF Shirt Hairy, personally I don't think it was as hard wearing as the KF but was a bit more comfortable

The early ones were thicker 100% cotton? than the later type which are a poly/cotton material like No2 dress shirts.

Ah shirts KF.........now there's a whole thread on the various patterns issued since 1938ish...... OK, coat and taxi waiting.

Well they are advertised as just cotton but who knows. Only getting them because they are 2 quid a pair and it means I don't ruin the good shirts with wood shaving, oil, glue etc whilst in the SHED. For a pound a shirt, the quality really is secondary but I'm hoping for the best.

I did wonder about getting a couple of old KFs for the same use. Had a lovely brown one when I was in that was passed on from one of the old soldiers in the regiment. It was so well worn and old it was like velvet. God I miss that shirt. :lol: :lol: would have been ideal for wearing in my SHED.

Did I mention that I have a SHED :?

I live in a first floor flat so I don't have a shed. I do however have a Garage... does this make me a shed walt?
If I had a garage I might be tempted to sell petrol cheap but the garage I do have does not sell petrol. Therefore I do not try and pass it off as a shed. It is a garage in which I keep all sorts of things which will not fit in my shed. In fact, anything but a car.

I had a KF that was nearly white, tailored sleeves and after nearly 6 years it was actually wearable, then I got told to exchange it by the RSM because it was no longer green.
