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 WWII US Navy Military Cracker Jack Shirt features a petty officer 3rd class engineer embroidered arm patch. There is also a stencil to the internal lower hem of the shirt.
Used and in fair to good vintage condition with general signs of wear, abrasion, discolouration and marks. Freshly laundered and ready for a new owner.
All our vintage listings unless otherwise stated are true vintage and have been worn before, therefore they will typically show signs of wear, which is all part of the vintage look and appeal.

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.
