ORIGINAL, RARE & VG+ Cond. KHAKI Cotton Twill M1926 Officer’s Blouse & Breeches
ORIGINAL, RARE & VG+ Cond. KHAKI Cotton Twill M1926 Officer’s Blouse & Breeches. This is an increasingly RARE, regulation M1926 khaki cotton twill uniform, worn beginning in the mid-1920’s to Army and Air Corps officers, as worn in the Philippines and the Canal Zone. The summer blouse is distinguishable from the winter version by the use of cotton twill fabric, rather than brown wool gabardine twill. The uniform was likely “bespoke”, since I was unable to find any QM tags in it. It also has four small snaps on the left shoulder (see image below), so the unit insignia, likely round in shape, could be removed for laundering. There isn’t a name tag or Army Serial Number marked in the blouse, just a partially legible laundry mark which reads RBF -. The blouse also has “pockets” on the back for the detachable Sam Browne Belt hangers (not included) in the outside seam of the waist and all of the original brass buttons, held by “split rings”, which could be removed for laundering (see images below). The actual measurements of the blouse are as follows: Chest: 18″; Sleeve Length: 24″; Shoulder Width: 16″; Waist: 15.5″ and Overall: 32.5. The waist of the riding breeches is 30″ with an additional 2″ to let out in the waist. The other measurements of the breeches are as follows: Hips: 26″; Inseam: 25″; Ankle Cuffs: 10″; and Overall: 39″. This RARE uniform is in VERY GOOD+ condition. It will be a great addition to a collection or the uniform of a reenactor who demands the very best, ready to have his rank and any additional insignia applied to it.
