THE REAL McCOY'S
MILITARY TEE US NAVAL STATION KWAJALEIN
This tubular knit tee from The Real McCoy's is made up with a souvenir style graphic for Kwajalein Atoll in the Marshall Islands. Constructed from a heartier tubular knit cotton, it features a ribbed collar that's been double stitched for added durability. What distinguishes this as souvenir style tee is the '49 and '50 at either side of the chest. These years signify the period of time spent on the atoll. Post WWII "Kwaj" became a command center for military testing conducted in the Marshall Islands.

The Real McCoy’s was created by Mr. Hitoshi Tsujimoto, an esteemed vintage collector and dealer, as a way to recreate the classic pieces from his archive of American fashion from the 40s & 50s. Inspiration alone was not enough to produce the ultimate reproduction, it required the sensitive minds of detail-orientated craftsmen in Japan. Additionally, The Real McCoy's reproduce materials and parts using the same methods and machinery from the past. While they create the ultimate reproduction, they seek to make it even better than the original. The Real McCoy's brand is split into distinct sub brands, to give each a clear identity. The Real McCoy's refers to the Military reproductions from the US Navy, Army and Airforce. Joe McCoy includes American sportswear, denim and workwear.
