Suit Herringbone Twill OD No 7, One piece, special by Kay Canvas.
These are the 1943 specification coveralls which was used through most of WW2. The coveralls where issued as work clothing for all branches of service including motor mechanics in the Army and Air force, it was also worn as part of the combat uniform fby the armoured units.
This is the second pattern coveralls made in the correct OD No 7 green cotton fabric. These where introduced in September 1943.
The second pattern had a few changes to the first pattern which included the gas flap (extra flap behind the button closure this is where the "special" in the name refers to).
These can be worn over other clothing so the legs are wider/looser than a pair of trousers, like all coveralls. To help with choosing your size the model is a 38" chest and 5ft 10" in all but one of the pictures he is wearing a size small in the last picture (marked with an * in the top corner) he is wearing a size medium. Depending on what look and what you wearing underneath the small gives a better fitted look but for work he may be better in the size medium.
These are the actual measurements of the coveralls when laid out flat. These are a better fit than the Mil-Tec coveralls, we found the Mil-Tec ones get longer in the larger sizes and the XL and XXL are really, really long in the larger sizes where the crotch is very low and the leg is very long. The Kay Canvas ones are about the same length as the Mil-Tec ones in the Small and Medium sizes but they are do not increase in the body and leg length as much as the Mil-Tec ones in the Large, X-Large and XX-Large so they are a better fit.
The chest is measured across the chest from under the arms. The sleeve is measured from the arm to the end of the sleeve cuff. The overall length is on the back from the base of the neck seam to the bottom of the leg.
