The Maritime Overshirt - Navy
In the 1930's Yarmouth Stores carried a range of ‘singlets and shirts’ from the 'Cruising Shirt, the Sports Shirt and the Tunic Shirt in latest designs'. The Maritime Shirt takes inspiration from the original Flannel Army Shirts featured in the 1930 catalogue.
The Maritime Overshirt uses a heavy 300gsm 100% cotton moleskin in deep navy, dyed and finished in the U.K.
The styling references the heavy sailor’s shirts that were historically worn layered for warmth as protection from the bracing North Sea winds. It has two generous buttoned chest pockets , and two vertical side hip pockets. The collar is a neat rounded shape. Our glossy, black corozo buttons contrast beautifully on the rich moleskin. There are four stitched under arm eyelets for ventilation.
