At sea

Here we have a happy sailor and a mat of some sort.
Note the thick waistband on the jockstrap.



  1. No, that would have been the standard strap width for the time - or perhaps times - given the hardware surrounding the subject which is anywhere from the 1930s to 40s. At this period, all US Navy personnel were issued with a standard jockstrap and from the plain waist band, this would appear to be one. Forget them old cotton fields back home, from the mid-1960s to 70s, US Navy jockstraps were in fact manufactured in Israel. I don't know why, so please don't ask.

    1. Thanks for that. It all makes sense except for buying jocks from Israel, lol.
