Vintage GI Wool 5 Button Sweater— Small
I was issued two of these shirts at a COLD Navy duty station in 1969. It took decades before they were tread bare and no longer wearable. I am delighted to have the opportunity to own a NEW issue of this shirt. They are extremely comfortable and great cold weather gear.
Wish there had been a medium in stock the small is a little tight but it will work, I will get a medium if I see one in stock. Should be a good alternative to a light jacket
My first one lasted 22 years and it was my light jacket and my winter coat. That first wear every fall was itchy for just a few minutes and then it felt perfect for the remaining cold months. I was so excited to find a new one here after a two year long search (not knowing what it was called). I am super pleased with the quality, price, ease of ordering, shipping speed and customer service experience. I will definitely be ordering from here again. This is my perfect shirt jacket and it's good to have it back in my life. I'd say it is true to size if not a little large (in 5'8" and 160 and a small still has a roomy fit) and it doesn't shrink after putting it through normal washer and dryer cycles.
It’s exactly as advertised
McGuire good to go in all aspects of transaction
Bought for one of my children so no personal knowledge of fit but daughter seems happy enough
Go buy some
Warm, well made and comfortable. Fits perfectly
