US NAVY WOOL TOUR JACKET

US NAVY WOOL TOUR JACKET

Japans embroidery work was at its best in the 1950s and was very popular with sailors of the US Navy when they were deployed to that part of the world. Nowhere else in world could a sailor get his tour jacket embroidered with such refinement so when they got into port many of them would make a beeline for the embroidery shops to get there jacket decorated - it was like the garment equivalent of tatooing.

The embroidery on this stunning limited edition piece depicts that of the USN high-speed transport USS Weiss which was in service during WWII and through the Korean War to Vietnam.
