New Naval Officers’ Black Jacket
In 2020, the US Navy officially commissions the surface warfare officer jacket, assigned to all Naval officers in training at the SWOS (Surface Warfare Officers’ School) based in Newport, Rhode Island. The Legendary Newport Navy SWO jacket is designed in black 3.0 oz. (1.2mm) military spec cowhide leather for daily use and abuse. The new design offers civilian-friendly side entry pockets for additional cargo, and is available in Small-Medium-Large-XLarge sizes for civilian use. Very similar to the US Navy G-1 Flight Jacket, but with full leather collar instead of fur. All the other features of a G-1 are also included, such as bi-swing action back, underarm gussets for easier movement and wool knit cuffs & waistband.
Don’t be fooled by imitators – this item is hand cut and sewn in the USA using union labor at the official contracted factory for the new USN SWO jacket.
