C.P.O.

Vintage Gant C.P.O

C.P.O.s are solid or plaid heavy wool flannel shirt-jackets that have either a quilted or fake fur lining.  C.P.O.s are named after U.S. Navy Chief Petty Officers, or non-commissioned officers, who wore similar shirt-jackets as part of their uniform.

Famous brands include Woolrich, Filson and Campus.  Although they convey that rugged mountain man vibe, C.P.O.s are more often seen these days on urban types.

At one time, even the Boy Scouts of America had a red C.P.O. that was part of the uniform.  Members sewed merit badges onto the backside.
