A while back I started pining for a new jacket to wear while at work. Initially I was going to just buy a blue Dickies Eisenhower jacket and sew a couple patches on it and call it a day, but then I became more fond of the collar style on the tanker jacket. I found the early Navy Deck jackets to be the same type construction in the correct navy blue color, but all the jackets I found were well out of what I want to spend on a work jacket that will be subject to everything you can imagine, and on top of that only worn a handful of months of the year here in FL. So I got it in my head I could just dye a tanker jacket. I got a deal on a What Price Glory Tanker and took it to the dye shop AKA my kitchen. I forgot to take the before picture but everyone is pretty familiar with a stock tanker color. Here is the after, you might not tell too easily but the knits actually took on a dark green/blue color. I'm going to find a way to re-dye these to get them a little darker. Overall I am pretty satisfied with the project so far, the one thing I can say about the WPG jacket is it runs BIG, its tagged a medium but it fits like a large, I can usually wear a 38-42 jacket. I'm currently hunting a heat transfer Stars and Stripes for the sleeve and I will sew on a medical patch to the other sleeve. I have considered painting my name on the chest or something of the sort, maybe a stenciled label, I haven't really decided yet.
