Mensagem: 

Should be 'jumper' as in jersey,pullover, sweater or guernsey worn in a team sport.


So the jumper worn by a partic team playing football or whatever.


Usage warning: though it derives from the French juppe 'pinaforefrock' it may be labelled on this forum as an example of the dreaded British influence on the language and so best avoided (treat it as though it were a politically incorrect term, say); I can’t make a call on whether the military forces approve of its use either so be careful on that count too, until the tribunal makes known the official position.
