As noted, the telnyashka is a traditional striped undershirt consisting of alternating white and black, blue, green or maroon stripes. Each long sleeve shirt is constructed from 100 percent cotton.
It is also worth noting that each Russian MVD striped shirt is an authentic shirt that is made in Russia. Each includes a sewn-in tag written entirely in Cyrillic, which presumably relays sizing information, care instructions and other basic information. This is in contrast to the many Chinese copies available on the market, which many collectors prefer to avoid.
Note: Sizing for the Russian MVD striped shirt is as follows: Medium (48-50), Large (52-54), Extra-Large (54-56) and Double Extra-Large (56-58).
