Nothing says Marine Corp more than the unmistakable shades of Scarlet and Gold. Although the Marines were formed 150 years earlier, it wasn’t until the 18th April 1925 that the service officially adopted these shades under Marine Corp Order Number 4.
Made entirely in Japan, by the best in the business, and recreated from a 1960s vintage original, this is the 4th in our series of authentic military Tees.
Manufactured with a special thread called ‘Raffy’, which is a combination of American Supima cotton, Egyptian cotton and Turfan cotton, it replicates the look and feel of vintage fabric. These cottons all have different length staples, giving the thread a distintive texture. This is then woven on rare vintage circular knitting machines, so the body is a complete tube with no side seam, known as ‘body-size’ - just like the originals.
Finally, the dying and sewing construction is impeccably matched to the original, rendering a recreation that is second-to-none.
Available in sizes 38 - 44
