The cotton velvet CPO Shirt from Pure Blue Japan is a statement-making spin on the classic, US Navy over shirt.
FABRIC: 100% cotton velvet
-Single chest pocket
-"Shoai" leaf snap buttons
-Embroidered "Shoai" leaf emblem on left pocket
ORIGIN: Made in Japan
NB - due to the nature and structure of the fabric, Pure Blue Japan provide some extra guidelines for the care of this product as the cut piles on the surface are particualrly vulnerable to friction, heat and excess water:
-When removing dust/freshening up, please use a clothes brush rather than a lint roller which may pull the piles out
-Wash Inside out, in a laundry net and on a cool, delicates/hand wash cycle. Hang Dry
-Iron cool on reverse side or steam to remove creases
Pure Blue Japan offer up a hyper-stylised take on the classic CPO shirt. Once a staple of US Navy Officer attire, this reimagining of the shirt is made up of a plush and lustrous cotton velvet. The fabric’s short, dense pile makes it a great option for those wanting an over shirt that’ll keep the heat in and the cold out. Points of note include the subtle curvature of the single chest pocket, a rounded hem with reinforced gussets, and subtle, side-cut handwarmer pockets. Finished with "Shoai" leaf-embossed snap buttons.
