Vintage Russian Telnyashka undershirt with Enfant Terrible print

Jarka pulled some of her favorite pieces of older Eastern European Military wear from the closet for this experiment in vintage meets contemporary.  Wikipedia explains: the Russian telnyashka is a white undershirt horizontally striped in various colors. It is an iconic uniform garment worn by the Russian Navy, the Russian Airborne Troops (VDV) and the Russian Naval Infantry (Marines). Dating back to the 19th century Tsarist Navy, it was subsequently worn by the Soviet successors of these troops.

 

These tanks are heavyweight knit cotton, great to wear alone on summer evenings, or drape with a shawl or jeans jacket when it gets fresh. pair with a strand of pearls or our feather necklace.  each shirt is one of a kind, see sketch for dimensions.
