The OD 51 tunic is made by Kay Canvas using a specially blended and dyed fabric. The brass buttons have the correct US Eagle design on them.

Most of the officers tunics in WW2 were private purchase items and a lot of original samples can be found with a London tailors label on the inside, some of these private purchase uniforms vary slightly in style, fabric and colour.

The US Army did manufacture and issue some Officers uniforms and this replica is based on the standard issue pattern.

 On the inside of this tunic there is a period looking label sewn in which has the US Eagle and the words "REGULATION Army Officers Uniform Tailored by Kay Canvas". 

 

Please note these are not a dark chocolate brown although they are often called chocolates they are a dark olive drab colour that is why they where officially called "O.D. Dark" by the US Army.

Insignia not included.
