Included is the dress jacket, wool pants, wool shirt, wool and leather cap, and canvas belt. I will describe each piece individually below. This is an AWESOME set! The coat, shirt, and pants all have been marked with black ink on the inside of each item. The markings include the soldiers name and/or initials and various numbers.The markings are not visible from the exterior. As stated above, the coat and pants are in excellent, like-new condition, with no issues. The wool shirt is lightly stained on the left pocket and the area between the two pockets. The shirt also has white specks near the left cuff and dark spots on the left cuff.
The dress cap is in very, very good condition, showing minimal light wear. There is some staining on the inner leather band that goes around the inside of the cap, maybe from sweat?? The canvas belt is in excellent condition, with no stains, spots, or other issues. The jacket is made from gabardine wool.
It is marked with a cloth tag on the inside of the right lower pocket as a size 37L. Other markings on the tag include: ISRAEL KLEINMAN, INC.
