UDT(Under Water Demolition Team) wears a Reversible T-Shirt during World War II for training. These divers had the job of clearing underwater obstacles for amphibious landings. It was hard training, and these men had to spend a lot of time in the water to get their special diving skills. The yellow side will be used when the standard is not met, while the blue side will be used normally to indicate the wearer's qualifications and status. These Reversible T-shirts were also used in Vietnam and were worn by SEAL(the successor to the UDT) until the 1990s. Later versions were light blue with no threaded cuffs and long sleeves.
This t-shirt is a reproduction of an early WWII version of the UDT Reversible T-shirt, with a more well-fitted tailoring, rib-knit cuffs, and each side has a size cloth label. These are details that later versions don't have.
This UDT Reversible T-shirt is a three-quarter sleeve version.

Bronson does it again (and again and again and again)! Super-quality, heavy duty old school reversible shirt. Just like the ones issued to us back in high school in the 70s - the idea being that the opposing scrimmage group could turn their shirts inside out to play the opposing team. I love the size tag added to the back of the next too - another authentic "old school" detail.
Awesome reversible sweatshirt
Very nice quality and fit which is a 44. There seems to be a lot of variation in sizes: the 44 in this shirt
works well. The 44 in short sleeve striped mariner's shirt is too tight. The wide stripe horizontal Black and white T-shirt in 44 is too tight. The largest wool deck jacket is 44......I sprang for it.....alas, too tight. So, it's a crap shoot as to what size really works. I keep looking for size 46 but they are very few.
Sizes run small. I'm between a Large & X-Large. I ordered a XXL (as I heard your brand runs small) and it's extremely tight. Gave it to my son who is a Medium. It fits him great. I'm pretty disappointed.
