Nicknamed the “Crackerjack” because of the iconic snack food packaging featuring a sailor (“Jack”) and his dog (“Bingo”) the iconic blue US Navy military uniform has undergone remarkably few changes since its introduction in 1864. This makes it one of the most easily recognizable military uniforms of all time.
This Deadstock vintage WW2 US navy military cracker jack shirt features a petty officer 3rd class embroidered arm patch. Internally the name BROOKS has been stenciled at the inner hem.
This is in unworn deadstock condition with the spare buttons still attached to the cuffs. There are three tiny holes (approx 4mm) to the lower side hem areas and some creasing which have occured whilst in storage. Steamed and ready for a new owner.

HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR SIZE: Please DO NOT solely rely on the listed size for your correct fit. Designers often use different measurements for sizes depending on the overall look they desire, so sizes can not only vary brand to brand but also within the same brand. Also, for vintage and pre-worn items the shape may have changed after years of being worn. The best way to ensure your correct fit is to compare the measurements listed to a similar item that fits you well.
