The U.S. Army developed the M-1943 Uniform beginning in 1942. Until the
introduction of this uniform, the Army had a variety of different combat
uniforms for each branch of service. By 1941, the infantry wore the wool flannel shirt
and wool serge trousers in winter and the cotton khaki shirts and trousers in
summer, often with the M-1941 (or Parson's Jacket), and wore low-quartered
leather shoes. Armoured units still were using wool riding breeches and wore
high-lacing boots in some cases, and the Paratroopers were stuck with a general
issue HBT coverall with no real suitable footwear. As a result of this lack of proper and suitable clothing, the Armoured units
were issued general infantry uniforms, although by 1942 the winter coveralls and
winter 'tanker' jacket had been produced with them in mind. These articles of
clothing were made of light green cotton lined with wool kersey.
The paratroopers got their own unique uniform of their own in 1942, also. It was constructed of light green cotton twill, with four front pockets and two pant-leg cargo pockets. They also got a new boot design of their own, a leather boot of similar construction to the infantry shoe, only being mid-shin high. The infantry uniform was lacking in functionality compared to the M-1942 Paratrooper.
