Introducing the OG Contingent Operational Group (COG) Hoodie. All the swagger and cool of our very first COG design, but now in a warm pullover hoodie!
We originally produced these In honor of the 70th Anniversary of D-Day, and have received continued interest in a new version since our first release 4 years ago.
WWII changed the world and US as a whole and the men and women who served in WWII were some of the bravest that the world has ever seen. This hoodie honors many of those same brave men and women. Join us in honoring the few remaining WWII veterans and the Glorious Amateurs.
Screened on a super soft cotton/poly pullover hoodie in heather navy. Pre-sale runs until 15 JANUARY 2018.

What started out as an “unusual experiment” ended up changing the face of WWII. General Donovan’s “Glorious Amateurs” should be remembered for “some of the bravest acts of the war”. Inglorious Amateurs honor those great men and women with this tribute to the OSS COG…
We aren't too humble to say we think our original COG shirt was badass, this hoodie is even better! Originally conceived as a tribute to the brave officers of the OSS Contingent Operational Group, this hoodie features the iconic unit insignia used by allied combined operations command forces and later adopted by OSS officers in the 3rd Contingent Operational Group.
The insignia elements contain an eagle for airborne forces, a Thompson machine gun for ground forces and an anchor for maritime forces. RUMINT reporting suggests this insignia might still be in use today by select Paramilitary Officers, but if we told you more they’d have to well…you know…
