I am trying to put together a World War Two US Navy inpression for living histories and parades. I am looking for the blue or white uniform. They can be WW 2 or Korean War vintage. The size for pants is 34x30 , shirt 15 x 34 or 16 x 34. I have some extra Class A wool uniform jackets for trade size 40 and another too in human size. I only buy what fits me or bigger.
Nobody out there has a US Navy uniform for sale or would like to trade? I am still in the market.
First off - The only shirt worn by Navy enlisted was the dungaree shirt. Jumpers were sized by coat size, Not shirt size and were Not called shirts.
Original WW 2 Dungarees & dungaree shirts are nearly impossible to find.
Whites & blues are a whole lot more common, but still Very hard to find. The sizes you want are Extremely difficult to find - which would account for no one answering your inquiry.
When I joined the Navy at 17 I had a 26" waist and wore a size 38 or 40 jumper.
You need to be more specific with your sizes too. A 15 x 34 shirt would = about a 40 long jumper and a 16 x 34 would = a 42 or 44 long. Which ever one fits you the other one would not so why 2 sizes?
I have WW 2 jumpers - both blues & whites - to sell, but they would have fit me when I joined, Not the large sizes you seek.
Thanks for the reply. I found a set that fits.
I have some blues and khakis that I will sell. I will have to size them first
