Beautiful 1940s blue plaid cotton shirt, by Wheatsheaf/C.W.S. (the Co-Op) with CC41 Utility label.

Perfect size 36”. Might fit a shorter 38” too, see measurements below.

Tartan pattern in dark and pale blue large checks with thin white and red cross stripes. Overall impression is of medium blue. Lightweight, fine weave, 100% cotton. Gusseted sleeve openings. Collar has stiffening pockets underneath. Label reads C.W.S. WHEATSHEAF MAKE CC41 and is stamped 2 and X226 .

Very good condition. Collar button missing, but a shirt like this would normally be worn open necked anyway. No real problems that I can see.
