The CPO jacket—the CPO stands for “Chief Petty Officer”—was often used as a mid-layer for navy servicemen during their routine guard shifts. They were first worn as far back as the 1930s, but because of their durability and utility, the garment has solidified itself in men’s style in the decades since.
Faherty has put a cozy spin on the CPO with this Quilted Fleece CPO Jacket. It’s made with ultra-soft cotton and is quilted to add extra warmth and texture to the garment.
We’re pairing this CPO jacket with a fresh light blue oxford shirt from Faherty (1) because wearing a collar will elevate the outfit versus a white tee, and (2) the oxford shirt will give you enough warmth so you can wear just the shirt and jacket to the bar and leave your overcoat back home.
Last, round out the fit with a crisp pair of khakis and sturdy leather boots—you can never go wrong with a pair of Wolverine 1000 Mile boots.
