Short Sleeve Crew Neck Sweatshirt in Washed Blue


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

This Short Sleeve Crew in Washed Blue is Nigel’s take on that seldom-seen classic of sportswear, the short-sleeved crew-neck sweatshirt. This style is usually rarer than the longer sleeved plain sweats. Originally, they were made by American Sportwear 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).

In the spring-summer Army Gym collection, this men’s sweatshirt is based on a US Army training sweatshirt from the Vietnam War era, featuring raglan sleeves, a ribbed hem, and extra panels under the arms to allow more arm movement.

Like the rest of the collection, this sweat is made in Portugal from fleece-back jersey cotton- giving it a nice, substantial feel. Pair with our Broad Arrow Sweatpants or Shorts which have been produced in the same garment-dyed hues to create a full Cabourn tracksuit.

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.
