Warehouse & Co. - Lot 5909 - USN Skivvy Fraise LS Shirt - Off White
*ROPES ARE NOT ATTACHED. THEY ARE PURPOSEFUL BUT COMPLETELY DETACHED. IF YOU'RE NOT BUYING THIS SHIRT BECAUSE OF THE STRINGS, PLEASE READ THE DESCRIPTION. THESE ARE SOME OF THE BEST TEES WAREHOUSE MAKES*
We've had quite a run with Warehouse Tees in the last 18 months, so when we saw these skivvy shirts come through...we were all over it. The little rope accent you'll see throughout the pictures definitely sealed the deal. These shirts are part of the "Duck Digger" series and they're wonderfully produced. The underwear used by the US Navy was called "squib" as slang. Early squibs were white but eventually changed to colors for the navy as to not be confused with the Marines and Army.
The little feature you'll notice on both sides of the hem is for the "Laundry Hall." When laundry is dried on deck, they would tie the ropes to the lines in order to prevent it from being blown off deck. This hole is of course reinforced like a button to keep its shape. It's such a wonderful little piece of history, even if you don't use the rope for daily wear or for hanging the shirts. This Navy's classic "Skib" T-shirt has been reproduced with details that are faithful to the original. This is a US NAVY original body woven using uneven yarn that is slightly thinner than the standard warehouse No. 12 and thicker than the Secohan T-shirt. It is a bit heavier than the t-shirt Skivvy and has a significant amount of natural stretch. This version is a long sleeve and has a super unique, extra-long ribbing section at the wrist. This can easily be doubled over, or worn as is.
To describe this cotton has been hard we find, not only for us but industry-wide. Some people call it slub. We were calling it texture at first, but ultimately our conversations with Warehouse kept bringing up one word - Shadow. When you put these shirts in the proper light, it makes perfect sense. The highs and lows in color can only truly be described as horizontal shadows in the cotton.
|Chest (pit to pit)||18||19
|Shoulder (back seams)||16.75||17||18|
|Length (CB to hem)||26.37||27.16||27.95|
|Arm (shoulder to seam)||24.4||25||26|
A variance of +/-.5" is within tolerance.
Fit Notes: Shop owner Tommy is wearing a 40 in the pictures. These are a trimmer fit in the body than the tee shirts. These were mostly worn as close to the body base layers, so we decided to size up for the pics. Tommy would personally purchase the 40 for personal consumption. The chest seems quite small but has a ton of natural stretch. Tommy is 5'10," 170lbs with a 40" chest.

We recommend a cold water wash and dry flat. Zach has washed his shirt and saw much less shrinkage than the Lot 4601. If you have any woes about sizing or the wash process in general, definitely size up to the next size.
