The U.S. Navy CPO Shirt - a classic among outdoor shirts.
Life on deck was and is a rough affair. That's why clothing had to be specially designed for wind and weather. Therefore, over the decades, certain materials and fits have been developed in the seafaring industry.
The 1943 CPO Shirt is one such garment that has evolved in the U.S. Navy. Originally developed in the 1930's the cut and material has changed only slightly over the decades.Good freedom of movement and 2 large chest pockets characterize our 1943 CPO Shirt.
