This smart jacket takes its name from the U.S. Navy’s Chief Petty Officers (or CPOs), to whom it was issued in the 1930s. A classic layer with practical beginnings, it’s become a menswear staple thanks to its versatility as a layer. Crafted from a premium blue-and-white Italian shirting fabric, our take puts a literal spin on the “shirt jacket” trend — think quality tailoring in a utilitarian style. The slightly oversized fit is designed to wear over a tee, button-down, or light sweater. Additional details include sturdy double needle construction and two roomy button-through pockets.
