One of the most popular and iconic pieces of military clothing ever made, and I'm always happy when I can find them for the store. 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, it even retains some remnants of the tag! The sleeves seem to have been period shortened, but these look way better rolled up, so I wouldn't worry too much about it. There is small hole just beneath the collar, but this shouldn't be a problem if the new owner want to fix or just leave as it.
