I was interested in this photograph because it shows US soldiers without their jackets, which allows to clearly see their sweaters. And I’ve realized that I have documentation (a lot of documentation) about trousers, belts, shoes, jackets, shirts but almost nothing to US Army sweaters. Indeed, as far as I know, there weren’t governement issue knit sweaters. These were home knit, donated & commercial ones, sleeveless or not. To see other picture of sweaters, it’s here!



One thought on “Sweaters

  1. The guy on the right appears to be wearing slippers or maybe rubber overshoes over his socks!? And the gut on the left seems to be wearing tall lace up boots! i didn’t think these were issued until WW2 or later. Could be non-issue hunting boots.
