RTO Jacket | Camo Herringbone
An update to the vintage military BDU Shirt: the RTO Jacket. PMC has added lower side-entry hand pockets, along with Vietnam-era slanted top pockets and an interior cell phone pocket. This one is made out of a double sided Japanese herringbone fabric.
Made in the Garment District in New York City.
Named in honor of Vietnam-era US Army radiotelephone operators, or RTOs. These unsung heroes were the guys carrying large packs with tall antennas on their back, usually right next to the platoon leader. In addition to being a badass Grunt, the RTO was the lifeline between units in the jungle and HQ - responsible for calling in air and/or ground support. Because of this - they were often the first target for the Viet Cong... Made from 100% Cotton. Machine Wash Cold, Hang Dry. Made in USA.
