The 1943 U.S. Navy CPO Shirt – A classic shirt for the outdoors
Life on deck can be rough sometimes. Therefore deck wear had to meet special needs. Over the decades certain materials and fits have evolved for life on deck. The USN CPO Shirt is one of those iconic pieces.
Historically CPO shirts have been made from wool or poly/wool fabrics. For our sulphur black version we have used a heavy moleskin fabric. The moleskin is made in Germany to old specifications.
Further Details of the 1943 CPO Shirt are:
- 100% cotton, 410 Gramms/m2
