USMC "Semper Fi" 3/4 Sleeve Raglan Shirt
The perfect combination of style and comfort... These vintage USMC heavyweight raglan shirts were initially designed for baseball players since they do not have a shoulder seam; baseball players could easily and quickly pivot, bat, and lift. These shirts are natural in color; with a bright red “USMC Marines Semper Fi” logo across the chest, ¾ red sleeves, a crewneck, and are made of 100% comfortable and soft cotton. Although they were initially designed to be worn as baseball undershirts, these raglan shirts have been popularly worn on their own as well; they are perfect to team with cargo pants or a pair of jeans.

Latin for “Always Faithful,” Semper Fidelis is the motto of every Marine—an eternal and collective commitment to the success of our battles, the progress of our Nation, and the steadfast loyalty to the fellow Marines we fight alongside.
The history of the raglan shirt has some surprising origins. During the Battle of Waterloo in 1815, Lord Raglan wore a coat with this continuous style of sleeve to allow for more seamless and unrestricted movement. However, he only had this style fashioned after he lost his arm to amputation. Raglan needed more room to swivel and wield a sword during this decisive battle, and the style has lived on since.
