These British Army pull-overs (or woolly pully from back in the day) were originally designed in WWII and issued to the British SAS and Bomber Command. The design was so popular that iterations are still being manufactured in modern times, such as the ones we have here. Also known as a 'Commando Sweater' in North America. Though British speaking countries of the world generally stick to the use of 'jumper' or 'jersey'.

Worn by many military personnel from WWII up until the present day. Truly a timeless and popular design. They are a comfortable rib knit sweater with a snug, yet stretchy fit for good freedom of movement. Made from moisture wicking and warm wool. Durable poly/cotton reinforcements protect the elbows, forearms and shoulder areas that will add years of good hard use to the jumper.

Beautiful Used Condition

Was notified size 136cm jumper was in stock. Lucky to order 2. I received 2 beautiful examples of British Army Issue wool jumper. They were better than I expected and I want to thank you because size 136cm is very hard to find.


Just okay.


Size is not correct. Too much wear and tear, not even grade 2.

Snug as a bug

Just arrived! Jumper in excellent condition, no quibbles on that point.
Talk about snug. I'm a 94cm chest - tall and slim- the 100cm jersey is super snug and form fitting to the point of not being able to wear much under it. Consider a couple of sizes larger if you like some room to move and want wear anything under it.
