Item Number: 13090
U.S.N. Sailor in Whites with Seabag and Hammock, 1920-41
This U.S.N. Sailor wears the simplified version of the white service uniform, otherwise known as the “undress whites.” This more formal service white uniform was a derivative of the earlier U.S.N. uniform established in 1866. The “undress whites” formed the basis for the white service dress uniform that was designed to be a summer-friendly alternative to the classic blue service dress sailor suit. Enlisted “undress” is less ornamental than the blue service dress sailor suit. This figure exhibits many of the characteristics known to exist on the U.S.N. whites worn between 1919 -41 such as the canvas twill “Dixie Cup” hat and cotton pullover V-neck jumper with squared “sailor collar.” The cotton twill, flat-front trousers have a front fly, two pockets, laced-back gusset, and plain-hemmed bellbottoms.
