The blouse consists of the front, back, collar and sleeves. The front and the back are of one piece. At the top of the front part, in the middle, there is a cut, fastened with a button. At the end of the cut, on the inner side, there are two buttons, and on the back, at the neck – a loop for fastening an imposed sailor’s collar, in military jargon referred to as “jack” (actually a jack is a bow flag of a ship).
The turn-down collar of the blouse is wide. The cuffs of the straight set-in sleeves are fastened with two golden metal uniform buttons.
There are cuts (slits) at the bottom side seams.
The duck blouse is worn with a sailor’s collar –“jack”, black cloth trousers, a leather belt with a brass buckle and boxcalf boots. Simple fabric sewn shoulder straps correspond with a military rank.
The blouse is worn over a sailor’s striped vest (Telnyashka) with the obligatory release of the sailor’s collar outside.
Routinely, the blouse is worn untucked, at the time of watchkeeping it is tucked into the trousers under the belt. In cold weather, a jacket or a naval coat are worn over the blouse.
A Тelnyashka is an undershirt vest of dark and white stripes, either sleeveless or not, an iconic uniform of the Russian Navy.
The sailor’s “jack” worn over the blouse is a big imposed (detachable) blue collar with three white stripes on the edge. The white color of the stripes represents the three victories of the Russian fleet: the Gangut the Sinop and the Chesmen battles.
