U.S. NAVY DECK HOOK SEAWATER WASH WORK
Coming into service in 1943, the Deck Hook superseded the former 'Deck Zip' model with the method of front closure being changed from a zip to a unique metal hook type fastener to reduce corrosion from salt water and allow for easier fastening.
The Deck Hook Jacket became synonymous with WWII U. S. Navy operations around the world.
'Sea Water Wash Work' finish is a process that gives the garment an authentic vintage look.
As this particular model was designed to be worn out over other layers, and the Buzz version is a very faithful recreation, the sizes come up very large. We therefore suggest ordering two sizes down from what you would normally wear.
The size 36 is good for someone who is normally 40
The size 38 is good for someone who is normally 42
The size 40 is good for someone who is normally 44
The size 42 is good for someone who is normally 46
The size 44 is good for someone who is normally 48
