The South Vietnam Tactical Chart Coconut Button Camp Shirt
From the DMZ to the Delta, this chart shirt is dedicated to the brave souls who answered the call when we needed them. This Pilot Quarters shirt is derived from 1965 tactical pilotage charts. It was a time of turmoil in our country when many treated our bravest with disdain and scorn. We believe they deserve our respect and admiration for fighting the good fight.

You can spend a lot more on a shirt, but it won't say half as much about you as an original Pilot Quarters chart shirt will say.
We designed our shirts to feel great and show the world that you truly know and love aviation.
Our ultra-lightweight, cool and comfortable shirts are no coincidence. We sourced them after tireless searching for the right balance between great quality and unnecessary expense.
Our best friends are fellow aviators. We are all in this together.
Our motto is what we do: Take Flight Everywhere!
We are a family of aviators. This whole business started with a spark of a conversation in the hangar after flying. What if we made amazing Hawaiian-style shirts by blending sectional charts with bold artwork. After much trial and error, we arrived here. Thanks for checking us out. We want to hear from you with your reactions and suggestions for the next best thing we can make. Welcome aboard!
We love shirts that feel great.
Our button-up short-sleeve camp shirts are our biggest seller. They are made from ultra-lightweight fabric that is breathable to help you stay cool no matter where you travel.
These shirts are our favorites for warm weather wear. After buying and wearing lots of aloha shirts, Hawaiian shirts, camp shirts, resort shirts, etc. from big and small names, we honestly love ours the most. They look great and just feel fantastic. One of our customers told us that he feels like he's "not even wearing a shirt" with one on.
The fabric is 100% polyester weave. When you feel it on your skin, it's incredibly soft. You wouldn't guess that it's polyester.
The sizes run wide in our button-up shirts. Length below waistline, shoulder size, sleeve length and width are all generous cut, but width is a little extra, which is good with us! We suggest you check the size chart before ordering.
The colors are vibrant and they stay that way, even after many washings. You won't find colors bleeding or fading from our shirts.
Perfectly simple. Wash at any temperature. Colorfast fabric doesn't fade or run. It looks great time after time.
Travel Care: Wash in any tub, sink, bucket or bowl that's handy with a couple drops of detergent, dish soap, shampoo or bar soap. Rinse well and hang up for a few minutes. Done. Looks fantastic every time.
At Home: Machine Wash & Tumble Dry. No ironing needed. Shirts come out of the dryer ready to wear.
Pilot Quarters is based in Michigan, where we do all of our design work. We are a family of aviators bringing unique designs to you using the most efficient means available. Some of our products are made in Vietnam and more of our products are being made in the USA all the time.
Most of our products ship directly from our sewing and manufacturing partners. Many of our items such as button-up shirts ship from our sewing partner in Vietnam. Orders arrive to USA customers in 10-15 business days, sometimes sooner. They ship by air using DHL and/or USPS.
Our items marked Printed in USA generally arrive in about 10-12 days from order. Shipping times and delivery days are dependent on factors such as stock, availability, weather and other factors beyond our control.
Orders are frequently packaged and shipped individually to expedite arrival. Please be patient; our unique products are worth the wait.
Once we get a little bigger, we imagine that we'll manufacture all of our shirts in the USA.
The Pilot Quarters brand still feels a little like flying a light sport while trying to get cleared into the Class Bravo.
There are lots of beautiful, fast and sleek alternatives out there and we're trying to keep up.
Thank you for giving us a chance to make your next favorite shirt.
I saw the ad for this shirt in the VHPA (VietNam Helicopter Association) Aviator magazine. And I had to have it. I called to ask a question about size and spoke to the owner who told me the story about why this shirt came to be, fascinating. When I got the shirt, I was amazed at the material, so light yet smooth and sturdy. I contacted as many VHPA members as I knew and send them pix. They all wanted the website and said they were going to order one. REALLY great quality.
Very readable design and nice quality fabric.
