This U.S. Army Air Force PT shirt is a reproduction of an original WWII design from my collection.
In June 1941, the Air Corps became the USAAF ( United States Army Air Forces ), also called the AAF ( Army Air Forces). The AAF was a combat arm of the Army until 1947. IN 1947, the AAF was abolished and the Department of the Air Force was created.
During WWII, athletic style t shirts were available for purchase at the PX and were commonly used in training and athletic situations. PT shirts with a variety of different unit logos are well documented in many WWII photographs.
Just like the original t shirts, this reproduction is 100% cotton with a period correct narrow 5/8″ neck, shorter sleeves and a slim/snug fit. These WWII Reproductions are true to size. This WWII US Army Air Forces t-shirt comes in men’s and women’s sizes.
This tee shirt is screened by hand and variation in colors naturally occur, as they did during WWII.
In addition, our WII Reproduction PT shirts have a spec tag screened inside the neck. Women’s sizes are available upon request. Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
