The army shirt has always been a staple in the wardrobe of those that love the sub-cultures in fashion, and this 1950s government issue piece has some great design details like the curved front and drop hem, and pockets to hold everything. Wear as a jacket or as a shirt over a white tee, it has many more years left in it to serve you.
