Details

Built for Battle. Pacific Ocean, 1942.

 

The men helming United States Navy battleships like the Sodak and Washington—loading 2,700-pound shells into 16-inch naval rifles with barrels over 60 feet long—wore chambray shirts. In fact, this was the standard uniform for most Navy men during WWII, regardless of assignment.
The chambray sleeves might be rolled up mid-bicep or full length.
The men in the chambray shirts unleashed the lead and saved the day.

 

USN WWII Chambray Shirt (No. 7205). 100% cotton indigo chambray has true chambray structure with it that authentic “light” appearance. Two-hole channel urea workwear buttons. Double-needle stitching. Unique patch-and-flap spaded pocket shape (like the originals). Adopted and made famous by the USN, made even more famous by certain kings of cool. Imported.
