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.
So excited to finally replace my aging US Navy black wool sweater. Looking forward to wearing it this Winter.
