It looks a bit sloppy, but you will need to post much better photos in order to make an informed judgement, however it appears to be a heavily altered piece. They are not even french cuffs, they are................well i don't know
I don't think I have ever seen lining quite like that on the inside. The stamping may be from a film company, but anything is possible
When you're wounded and left of Afghanistan's plains,
An' the women come out to cut up what remains,
Jest roll to your rifle an' blow out your brains,
An' go to your Gawd like a soldier." - Rudyard Kipling
I agree with John. Many things about it are odd, the lining, the breast eagle and the cuffs included. The pictures are inadequate. I don't like it.
The seam down the back is troubling and the cuffs with snaps are strange indeed. I'm leaning towards it being a heavily reworked Swedish WWII Bluse based on the rear seam. Perhaps a movie costume? NH
Thanks everyone. I'll be sure to steer clear.
no good for all them reasons and more.

I get weird feelings seeing this piece. I would not be happy to have this in my tiny pile of old clothes.

Is this one located in France? If so this seller has two screen names and has been selling this junk for awhile.
