Rare US Navy Jumper with Liberty Cuffs Sea Dragon Dress Uniform

Check out the satin embroidered dragons on the liberty cuffs of this navy uniform. Liberty Cuffs are those embroidered patches sewn inside the cuffs of Navy dress blue uniforms. These uniforms are worn by Navy enlisted men, pay grades E-2 through E-6. The embroidered patches were non-regulation, "illegal," and often resulted in sailors, if caught (usually by the Shore Patrol personnel), having their liberty cancelled and being sent back to their ship or shore station.
The patches (liberty cuffs) were sewn, usually by a uniform tailor using a hidden stitch. This resulted in a regulation looking uniform when the cuffs were in place and buttoned, but displayed when the sailor was on liberty and unbuttoned and rolled the cuff up one roll to display the fancy designs. Liberty cuffs were found all over the fleet, and in many state side uniform tailor shops. But, they were most commonly made in Asian ports. In fact, the oldest versions of these fancy inside cuffs were often attributed to "China Station sailors", "China Fleet sailors", or "China sailors", for short. This is in excellent condition. Top or jumper also has a secret pocket located on the inside on the right side over the heart. It has a flap and buttons shut. Jumper measures 17.5 across shoulders, 19 across chest, 23 inches from shoulder to bottom and the sleeves are 25 inches long. Trousers measure 16 inches across waist with a 29 inch inseam and a 3 inch hem. The trousers are missing two of the buttons. International buyers please contact me for shipping amounts.
