    Following on from the previous thread I was asked to show better photos of my 45 dated Gymnastiorka . I thought to post my other pocketless uniform which is female and a size 8 at most - whereas the male one in thinner chino style cotton is a size 5 .
    The elbow reinforcent and loops for attatching pogoni are present on the first one , which came in with most of its original buttons .

    Heres my Female 1943 gymnastiorka. The right over left fly front closure and bust darts immediately apparent. This is in a charming size 1 appropriate to the tender years of its original owner no doubt ! This example came minus buttons and both Gyms came to me minus Pogoni . The Factory mark is more blurred but I can make out something like ' Fabrika Kazan ' Poct 1 and probably a 45 dated stamp in lower corner.

    Hi,
    Thank you for the pictures. The cloth clothing seems to be US. This is a fine example of M43 without pockets.
    The M43 for female staff is also very interesting. The cloth is really different.
    Regards.

    Thanks Philippe. I was told it was US cloth when I bought it so good to hear that confirmed. The female one is a stout cotton like on breeches. You can see it doesn't crease as sharply from the pics. It took me a long time to find these .

    Hi Rob ,

    very nice Gymnasterka

    white color has a particular meaning ?

    Thanks Dom . They aren't white as such but both are a beige shade of khaki . The female one is standard shade and a little washed out so was more brownish grey originally . The large size gym is a light shade of beige hard to describe. It doesn't look washed out but is a slightly pinkish shade of sand khaki ( see close up photo ). The black background contrasts a lot making it appear white perhaps .
    The boy soldier in your username photo has a fairly washed out gym compared to his breeches , I think the soldiers saw it as a sign of the Frontovik !

    Yes certainly, a light effect, the Gymnasterka appears to immaculately white

    Very nice. I do wonder if the first example has been washed in a harsh detergent or a mild bleaching agent. The pink/brown thread is quite peculiar and I wonder if its color has been shifted by a laundering agent??

    Thinner cotton chino style is clear enough in its original color, with succesifs washes, it becomes almost white.
