Soviet AIRBORNE Spetznaz Telnyashka, traditional striped, long sleeved, knit shirt with light blue stripes.

New, unissued condition. In cotton; a comfortable, stretchy double knit. The stripes are woven not printed and are as blue on the inside as on the outside. Currently made in Russia but virtually indistinguishable from Soviet era navy / merchant fleet sailor shirts. The sleeves on these seem to average about 22" in length from shoulder seam to "cuff". Since this is actually an undershirt, the sleeves probably aren't supposed to reach all the way to the wearer's wrist. In many cases, Russian servicemen wear them pulled back up their forearms well toward their elbows.
