I thought this was interesting for USN cold-weather shirts, a USN captain (Leslie Gehres, COMPATWING FOUR) wearing an army enlisted OD wool shirt in the Aleutians, 1942.

Here is mine from a SACO veteran.

I had forgotten about this thread.  Seeing the OD shirt reminded me of some pictures I have of Naval Aviation types in Alaska wearing OD Wool shirts.  I have an OD wool shirt with a Naval Clothing Factory tag in it.. This picture is from October 1943, captioned they were Catalina crew in the Aleutians.

Here's another one from the same batch (from the National Archives).  Both pictures are a good study of miscellaneous stuff you'd find in the barracks.
