This is the CPO-style shirt jacket that blends the quintessential sailor’s overshirt with modern fabric technology. Originally issued to Naval Chief Petty Officers in the 1930s, the shirts were prized for their warmth and comfort, with a roomy fit ideal for wear as an outer garment. Our version of this cold-weather classic is made of soft flannel lined with cozy fleece. The shirt’s fibers include a contemporary technology that gives the shirt stretch and allows it to resist bacteria, viruses, and odors so it can be washed less frequently, yet still maintain its freshness. In Gray, Navy, or Forest. Machine washable, tumble dry. Imported. Men’s sizes S, M, L, XL, 2XL, 3XL.
Place one end of the tape measure at the center of the fullest part your chest. Wrap it around your body (including shoulder blades), keeping the tape parallel to the floor.
Measure around your waist where your pants sit, keeping one finger between the tape and your body to ensure an accurate fit. Think of the tape as a belt for these purposes.
The easiest way to do this is to measure pants that fit you well. Lay them flat, with the front and back creased smooth. Measure along the inseam from crotch to bottom of leg hem.
Relax your arm at your side and slightly bend. Measure straight from your shoulder, down to where your cuff would be.
The easiest way to do this is to find a shirt with a collar that fits you well. Lay the collar flat. Measure from center of collar button to far end of opposite button hole.
HEAD (use for hats and caps)
Measure around the largest part of the head, with tape above brow. Keep the measuring tape around your head at the point at which your hat normally rides (approximately 1” above your ear).
HAND (use for gloves and mittens)
Measure all the way around the widest part of knuckles with your hand flat (excluding the thumb). The number of inches equals glove size.
