Also, black soldiers did not fight alongside white soldiers in the U.S. Army in World War II. But you wouldn’t know that by looking at Captain America: The First Avenger. Hollywood was just trying to be politically correct given the current situation in the United States. Racial revisionism has become so common in film that it’s almost customary, so much so that moviegoers rarely balk or even blink. One could argue that the events in the film is taking place in an alternate universe where the U.S. Army was integrated and forget about how the blacks were never allowed to fight alongside their white American comrades until the Korean War in 1951.
According to Pop Toys, actor Chris Evans who plays the role of Captain America wore military uniforms which were different when compared to the actual World War II American soldiers’ military uniforms. So they decided to make clothing according to the style of uniforms in the film.
And this is what you get :)
POPTOYS Style Series X19 1/6th scale WWII Captain military uniform suit A is very well cut and stitched and the fit on 12-inch Steve Rogers is as perfect as it can get IMHO The fabric materials used are not too thick and doesn't cause the figure to suddenly bulk up and look fat or bloated. It fits the figure very well and makes Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) look really smart and distinguished. The United States Army really knows how to dress a soldier and make him look good.

Here's 12-inch Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) - 1/6th scale head sculpt taken from Hot Toys Movie Masterpiece Series MMS281 "Avengers: Age of Ultron" 1/6th scale Captain America Collectible Figure (action figure review posted on my toy blog HERE and HERE) - wearing the POPTOYS Style Series X19 1/6th scale WWII U.S. Army uniform of shirt, trousers and shoes.
And the picture below shows off the fully dressed Steve Rogers with the POP TOYS Style Series X19 1/6th scale WWII Captain military uniform suit A for 12-inch figures. Unfortunately the belt didn't fit on the jacket as shown in the preview pictures (posted HERE). In the end, the uniform still looks great without it. Check out the turnaround views.
In the film, Steve Rogers in shown wearing a Combat Infantry Badge (CIB) on his pocket flap, below his ribbons, with his jump wings above the ribbons. Proper wearing would be CIB on top, jump wings, then the ribbons, all above the pocket flap. Like I mentioned, Hollywood does take liberties with factual accuracy by creating their own history.
