-in other words, I agree, probably an army shirt. 
Definitely a cut-down U. S. Army shirt, though it may or may not have been produced under a CCC contract.  All CCC contracts for clothing were contracted via the U. S. Army Quartermaster.  Some items were actually just purchased from the U. S. Army, but the majority were separately contracted, though the item itself may be identical to the U. S. Army version and even employ U. S. Army buttons, so only the contractor tag (if still present) will reveal the true nature of the item.  

The photos below are of a CCC Mackinaw that is identical in every way to the U. S. Army Short Overcoat and only the contractor tag reveals that this was intended for the CCC; remove the tag and it's a U. S. Army overcoat in every way.  The E. C. F. initials are one of the prefixes found on CCC contracts (Emergency Conservation Force), but please note that the contract was still made directly via the Phila. QM Depot (669 was the number for P. Q. D.).

The CCC ended up being a manpower source for the military once war was declared and the meat grinder of WWII needed bodies, thus ending the useful life of the CCC.

Someone with talent on this forum must be able to make this into a sweatshirt/ t shirt?

I could have this done.  I'll post in the shops section and see what response takes shape.

Hey Doc- I was wondering when you get a chance- could you post some pics of that 1880's price list that's in your new 501 book, I was thinking you could put it in the Levi thread- I can post the copy I have of the 1879 Levi price list, plus I have a price list from the late 1890's

Hi Mike, the photo of the price list in the 501XX book is tiny, so tiny I had to get a magnifying glass to read it! Doubt if my crap phone can do it any justice.
Duke has a copy, and I'm sure he has the camera to capture it - give him a nod Smile

I'll post it up tonight when I get home. I can't think of that price list specifically, with regard its physical size, but hopefully I can enlarge it a bit and still keep it sharp.
