A good example of a denim working battle dress blouse. This example is post-war dated but conforms to the wartime economy pattern.

The blouse has had a full set of plastic buttons sewn on in place of the revolving shank buttons designed to fit through the holes, this was a common modification both wartime and beyond. The buckle is an earlier wire tab buckle as opposed to the normal toothed type. The epaulettes have had shoulder titles fitted at some point, as indicated by the twin slits that have been cut through each. 

There is some marking to the back as pictured, along with a few pulls. There is a small area of ribbing to the shoulder as pictured.

Actual approximate size is more like a 40-42 chest and 34-36 waist, rather than the label sizing. The sleeve measures 24.5 from shoulder seam to cuff. The size is likely underestimated to account for thick layers underneath.
