British Army 37 Pattern Tunic - WW2 Repro
WW2 reproduction British 37 Pattern Battle Dress Uniform Wool Tunic.
During the 1930s the British War Office tested a number of new uniform variations to replace the previous combined field and dress service uniform. They settled on the ‘Battledress, Serge’, or 1937 pattern, which was designed with the needs of mechanised infantry in mind. The jacket or blouse was short in the body and constructed from wool serge. It was copied by the US Army where is became known as the Ike jacket, and the Canadian army also produced their own very similar version.
These jackets have two front button down pleated chest pockets and two internal pockets as well as a smart collar with hooks. There is an integrated waist belt with a metal slide buckle. The tunics have button down epaulettes and plastic buttons. There are three button holes on the reverse of the waist band for attaching the jacket to the 37 Pattern Trousers.
Fantastic quality battle dress tunics, perfect for a British Army impression.
I am interested in the 37 battle dress. I’m 2m tall and wonder how possible it is to have a slightly longer body on the battle dress as I wouldn’t wear it as a reenactor.Submited by: Rob Thompson 02 Jan 2023
The longest length(s) we have available for this product is 25" for the 2XL-4XL. I'm afraid we cannot customise the length of this jacket in any way.Answered by Admin on 06 Jan 2023
