Offered here is a nice example of the M43 Gymnasterka made from U.S. Lend-Lease supplied mustard colored wool. As often seen with this style, larger, should board buttons have been used throughout. The top most collar closure button is a replacement that is of the rimless, full dome style. All the others are matched rimmed type buttons. Other than a minor hole in the lower front, this blouse is in superb condition, even has a set of white cotton cuff liners tacked in to the cuffs. This blouse has had the shoulder board loops removed, but I will supply the buyer with a set of loops in the same U.S. wool material to match the tunic. I can also provide a replacement button for the collar closure that will match the balance of the buttons.
