Two New Versions
Pike Brothers released two new versions of their 1943 U.S. Navy CPO Shirts. The shirts are made in the colors Kena Yellow and Kena Blue.
The Origin Of The U.S. Navy CPO Shirts
The origin of the U.S. Navy CPO Shirts goes back to the 1930s, but these Pike Brothers versions are made with the pattern from the 1940s. The original shirts are still used today, with some minor changes. These were originally made for the U.S. Navy as life on deck at sea could be rough sometimes, therefore deck wear had to meet special needs. Over the decades’ certain materials and fits have evolved in seafaring. The roomy construction together with two large chest pockets meets every petty officer’s needs on deck.
The Details Of The Pike Brothers Shirts
While the originals were produced with a heavy wool blend, the Pike Brothers’ versions are made with a sturdy flannel. The fabric is 100% cotton 310 g/m² with a check pattern. It features two large chest pockets, authentic branding labels on the chest pocket and the neck inside, and cat-eye buttons as closure. The Pike Brothers’ 1943 U.S. Navy CPO Shirts are made in Portugal.
