I have looked for one of these for a long time. I thought I was going to have to re-enlist to get one! I think you have made me, and the Navy very happy!
I have an older version of this same sweater that was issued to me in the service. It's always in my hunting pack as an extra layer in case I catch a chill. I bought 2 for my hunting buddies 2xl and 3xl, these are big guys and they both fit great.
When I was in the Navy back in '69-'75, I wore one of these when I had to be outside in cold weather. After I got out, I wore it under a Navy leather flight jacket when I rode my motorcycle. Somehow over the years it disappeared, and I missed it a lot. Nice to have one again. I wear it on my morning walks now that the temps have dipped down into the thirties. I'm 5'-7'' and 155 pounds and the Medium fits comfortably.

My sister was a Navy Nurse back in 60’s and 70’s. Somehow she had a navy bridge sweater. And somehow, I got it. It was THE BEST SWEATER I had ever owned. I vowed I would keep it the rest of my life, but along the way, it disappeared. When On-line Shopping started, I looked in LL Bean, Northface, Lands End, Columbia, etc, and could not find it. I stumbled across your website, and there it was. I was still a little unsure until I read a post by a Navy vet who said the same thing: best sweater he ever had and that yours was the real th8ng and he was sooooo happy to have one again. So, I bought it.......and it IS the real thing. Thank you for re-creating it. Now, if only VW would really bring back that incredible beetle of the 60’s ( not what they’re selling now), and if we could bring back meat the way it used to taste without steroids, that would be wonderful too.
