Warehouse & Co. - Lot 2187 - CCC Denim Pullover - Indigo Denim
This Army Denim Pullover was a uniform setup for miscellaneous work used by the US Army until the 1930s. During World War II, the U.S. Army had already used OD green herringbone twill for BDU and workwear, which is highly antitoxic and can be used as a protective color. So it was officially adopted in the 1940s. This is more what people are used to seeing, but if you find pictures from this time period you'll see members of the Civil Conservation Corps (CCC) wearing denim. These were built to be roomier for movement, but you also saw military members and POW's modifying them by cutting them down the front. They say this is where the denim coverall came from, but it was very short-lived as the use of denim was soon discontinued by the goverment. This is a very rare piece of American History reproduction. Scope the funky pockets, cut on selvedge, just below the chest.

Fit Notes: Tommy is wearing a size 38 in this shirt. Usually, we don't scoop 38s in most Warehouse shirting because it fits so small. For historical reasons, this one fits surprisingly roomy. There's extra room in the body as well as the arms (luckily those are adjustable). Tommy is our standard fit model at 5'10," 165lbs with a 40" chest, and typically wears a North American Medium and Japanese Large.
