Short Sleeve Crew Neck Sweatshirt in Natural


Also available in Washed Army, Racing Gold, Washed Blue and Black Navy

The Short Sleeve Crew in Natural is Nigel Cabourn’s take on that seldom-seen classic of sportswear, the short-sleeved crew-neck sweatshirt. Whilst these have always been rarer than their long-sleeved counterparts, they were occasionally made by American sportswear brands during the middle of the 20th century, and were often worn for college athletics training and as part of the military PT uniform (Steve McQueen’s cut-off version in The Great Escape probably deserves a mention too).

This one here is based on a vintage US Army training sweatshirt from the Vietnam War era and features raglan sleeves, a ribbed hem, and extra panels under the arms for an extra bit of arm movement.

Created as part of the Army Gym range, it’s made in Portugal from fleece-back jersey cotton for a nice, substantial feel. It also comes in the same garment-dyed hues as our Broad Arrow Sweatpants and Shorts, meaning it can be worn with them to create a full Cabourn track-suit.

Fit Advice: Model is 6ft 2 and wears size M.

Please NoteThrough wearing and washing over time, our pigment dyeing process may result in slight colour fading/unevenness. 

This is to achieve a unique, vintage look more quickly and should not be considered a fault but part of the nature of the garment.
