Freewheelers Heavy Kersey U.S. Navy Officer Shirt

When it comes to heavyweight kersey shirting, FW create some of the best in the industry!

The officer shirt is a versatile choice for layering up as an overshirt or wearing as is for something cosy. This design is inspired by the classic US NAVY uniforms! The classic curved chest pockets make up for an elegant look where FW have taken the liberty to exaggerate the shapes for a more intriguing look. The collar strap is great for keeping cosy in the windy weather and makes up for an elegant workwear look.

The curved cuffs and bottom hem add a refined feeling to the silhouette, again FWs are taking this into classic design into their world.

The extra-large buttons are much heavier than typical shirts and feature engraved anchor detailing. These will keep the front closure secure thanks to their thickness.

Now to this heavyweight twisted yarn fabric! it's been specially developed by FW and refined each season to the ultimate soft texture that will become enhanced with time. The colourway is thread dyed meaning you'll see more shades of the navy after long term usage and gain some soulful, soft contrast.

For that serious standard US NAVY shirt style, this is the choice!

How We Measure

Pants and Shorts


With the major buttoned up (i.e. the top button) open the jeans and lay them flat, like shown. Measure from the front where the major button closes to the back belt loop. Double this measurement to find the waist measurement.

The way we measure the waist is different from the 'Side to Side' technique. If you are used to the 'side to side' technique you can roughly roughly downsize by 1 inch.

For example, 'side to side' measurement for The Flat Head 3002 waist is 28inch and using our method measures at 29.25inch.

Front Rise:

With the jeans lying flat measure from the crotch bar tack to the top of the waistband. 

Back Rise:

Spread out the crotch so the bar tack is visible, then measure from the crotch to the top of the waistband.


One inch down from the crotch, measure flat across to the other side.


Flatten the leg and measure along the inseam from the crotch to the leg hem. 

Leg Openning:

Measure straight across the hem from side to side.





Lay flat then measure from the shoulder's edge to the other shoulder's edge.


Lay shirt flat and measure from pit to pit.

Sleeve length:

With the sleeve flat measure from the shoulder to the cuff.

Arm hole openning:

Measure from the shoulder down to the pitt.

Vertical length:

With the shirt facing down, Measure from below the collar to the bottom hem.
