Postwar m/36 Tunic from 1959. Suitable for officer impression or an enlisted mens impression.
The Finnish m/36 Tunic was the main uniform of the Finnish armed forces during the Second World War and for a few decades after. Its successors are still used by the officers in the Finnish military. The tunic itself is closely modeled after the Reichwehr tunics of the early 1930’s. It is thus pretty close to the German tunics of the Second World War. There are some differences in the fit and details of the tunics, but the lineage is pretty apparent to anyone collecting or studying these uniforms.
This particular tunic is your standard post war m/36 Tunic, intended for the contemporary enlisted men of the time. The pattern however is closer to wartime officer’s m/36 tunics. A great option for an officer’s impression or an enlisted mens impression for the Second World War. The tunic is in pretty good condition with no major damage. There are a few repairs on the sleeves, chest and liner. The lining is full lining in green artificial silk. The liner has a white label marking it as a TV production property. The material of the tunic itself is fairly rough, slightly blueish grey woolen cavalry twill, almost identical to the wartime regulation material. Buttons are dark grey post war plastic buttons.
The tunic is stamped with SA-cartouche, size marking 48 A and manufacturers label VPu Int 59 for the manufacturing year of 1959. Size 48 A is intended for a 164 cm to 170 cm tall man with a 96 cm chest circumference.
