Очень короткая мужская стрижка, введённая в моду гребцами Гарвардского и Йельского университетов. В 1940-е — 50-е гг. эта стрижка стала символом американского молодого человека. Более ранний термин crew-cropped не прижился в языке.

I cannot understand my son. A year ago he looked like a hippy — long hair, sandals, stained jeans. Now he looks like the star of an American football team — crew-cut, fresh face, a picture of rude health. — Я не могу понять моего сына. Год назад он выглядел как хиппи — длинные волосы, сандалии, грязные джинсы. Сейчас у него внешность звезды американского футбола — короткая стрижка, свежее лицо — образец здорового человека.
