Navy heavyweight 100% cotton certified organic TSPTR Cadet sweatshirt with water based ink Peanuts print

The China Beach Surf Club was an unofficial U.S. Military association founded in 1967 in Da Nang, Vietnam and grew into a major cultural and therapeutic outlet for young G.I.s to surf during R&R while not at the front lines of the Vietnam War. The Surf Club became legendary within the surf and military community, and helped form the basis for the laid back surfing soldier in Vietnam archetype. It was also the inspiration for Lt. Kilgore, the surfing Air Cavalry officer, in Apocalypse Now.

Based on US Army Cadet physical training sweatshirts, this silhouette is oversized and slouchy with a triangular arm pattern and wider rib neck and cuff. Made from 300gsm organic cotton and overdyed using natural dyes.
