Description

This vintage sailor's middy top most likely dates from the 1940s or WWII era. As you can see in the photos, it is in great and wearable condition.

The front has a breast pocket. The little tab next to it is used to secure a bandanna. There is a similar tab on the back of the top that is used to hang it up on a hook.

The middy shirt is in amazing shape:

1) The white is still bright and even. Any variation from one photo to the other is due to lighting.

2) The fabric is clean and free of tears, holes, bad smells, perspiration damage, or noticeable spots.

3) There is a group of three small black specks that are each 1/16" in size on the lower middle back.

4) There is a 3/8" by 1/2" brown smudge on the edge of the collar at the top of the shoulder.

5) The waist has four openings that are probably for drawstring ties, but they are missing.

All measurements are taken while the top is lying flat on a table:

1) The chest is 18" (36").
2) The length of the sleeve from the top of the armhole to the edge of the cuff is 23".
3) The width of the shoulders on the back of the top is 15 1/2" (between top of each armhole).
4) The length from the top of the shoulder to the hem is 25".
5) The waist is 18" (36").
6) The hips are 18" (36").
