    Wool Sweater with Collar Pull Strings

    Post by oceanfrontguy on Tue Nov 25, 2014 10:21 am

    Recently found this wool sweater at a local thrift store. First time ive seen one with pull strings like a hooded sweatshirt. As you can see the tag is partially cut. Anyone know what type or era this is? Is it even US? I was thinking it may be British but the tag seems to be all in US English

    Looks like newly made WWII British Commando replica,

    Probably from WPG ( What Price Glory )...

    I just looked at that one on WPG and its slighty different. Different color of course but mine has a pen type pocket on the leftsleeve (see photo). I didnt see it on the WPG version

    Could be from another vendor, but definitely British Commando replica.
