We have received a number of inquiries regarding the NEW Shirt Designs for Letter Carriers that became available October 15, 2010. The release of the new design of short sleeve, long sleeve and shirts jacs was authorized by the United States Postal Service.
The new shirts are made of a solid light blue (no more stripes) and include the same Postal logo embroidered and sewn over left pocket. The cut and fabric of the new postal letter carrier shirts is the same as the previous design.
The only remaining provider of the fabric used to make the original design has shut down, leaving no US-made replacement of the fabric.
What about your old shirts?
According to the USPS, the original style letter carrier shirts can be worn “in perpetuity.”
