In 1913, the U.S. Navy launched the first generation of deck work clothes (it was stipulated that this kind of work clothes can only be used when it is necessary to work, and usually still wear sailor's clothes). This is a pullover (there are two patch pockets under the chest). In 1917, the no patch pockets version appeared. In 1918, the buttoned front jacket appeared. In 1922, the buttoned front jacket has fully used replaced the previous pullover.
This denim jacket is a reproduction of the USN buttoned front denim jacket from the early 1920s. It's made of 9.5 oz. selvedge denim, very close to the texture of the original version, and with detachable anchor pattern brass buttons of the original version style.

Love the jacket... Or should I say my wife loves the jacket, as the size (despite my measurements being up to date) was too small for me. I measured in at 38, but will be ordering 40-42 next time. I am generally a medium.
However, the construction and look of the jacket is beautiful, and for the money I don't think there is a better one around.
The size 42 fit great. I am 5’11” at 160 lbs. Originally bought size 38 and was short in the sleeve and tight in the shoulder area.
This is a well made, classic designed coat that is the perfect weight for the weather in Southern California. I highly recommend
Great fit, quality and details. The denim is lighter weight than I had expected, almost more of a shirting fabric, but it's my own fault for not reading the description thoroughly (it says 8.5oz denim right in the details section). The sleeves are a bit short on me, but then, I'm 6'4", so most sleeves are. If I was going to buy another, I'd get the wabash a size up.
Very pleased with this purchase, good fit and exceptional quality with attention to detail.
Excellent reproduction, finished my USN impression off nicely. Sizing is true to website, lovely denim, looks and feels great!
Great fit, the shawl collar is a great feature!
Wonderful item, really happy!
Great quality and good value. Will buy more.
