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 recognisable military uniforms of all time.
This Vintage WW2 US Navy Military Cracker Jack Shirt features unique Liberty Cuff bands to the inner cuffs, internal decorative seams with multicolored internal stitching and a cracking embroidered back neck dragon patch.Named 'Liberty Cuffs' as they could only be displayed when a sailor was off duty, or 'on liberty', and could roll up their sleeves to show their unique cuffs. The tag identifies the shirt being manufactured by the 'The Seafarer' Naval clothing, this was likely produced during the Vietnam War period as the decorative embroidery is similar to many others of the period.
Used and in good vintage condition with signs of wear and abrasion, mainly around stress points, including the cuffs and the hem. Freshly laundered and ready for a new owner.
