Riihipaita is an older style Finnish civilian undershirt. Very common shirt for your average Finn during the Second World War.
These shirts were bought by the Finnish military and issued as undershirts to the soldiers as there were not enough white Army undershirts to issue.
The shirt is a striped cotton shirt, with three buttons on the front and a button on each cuff. The collar is a short standing collar. The hem is relatively long so it stays inside the trousers (and warms your butt). The backside is longer than the front. The fit is very loose, the shirt isn’t intended to fit tightly – it’s a baggy and comfortable shirt.
The buttons are plastic that is made to look like bone. If you wish to change them, we sell metal dish buttons separately. You need 5 buttons per shirt.
An ideal shirts for any Finnish Armed Forces impression, from officers to enlisted men, from navy to ground forces.
