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. This does seem to have been modified at some point, the sleeves had been turned up, which I've now put back to their original length. It also seems to have been taken in down the sides. Given this is still a larger size, this would originally have been an XXL! The modifications have created a really unique garment, with the look of a standard shawl, but fitting much longer in the body!
