One of the most popular and iconic pieces of military clothing ever made. The US Navy adopted denim as part of its uniform in 1901, and would make numerous garments in this most popular of fabrics, but few are as enduring as the shawl neck. Worn during WW2, these garments would come to represent the enlisted sailor, and be worn both whilst working and on shore.
This is in great condition, beautiful strong blue denim with some amazing fades around the sleeves and the neck. A few frays around the sleeve ends. There are a couple of small holes on the back, but these have been patched on the inside to prevent any further issues.
