explorer shirt . powder blue


A shirt? It's an explorers must. This oversized linen shirt caught my eye immediately. It was the powder blue linen that seduced me and it's the kind of shirt that immediately made me want it for lounging with bare legs on lazy Sundays. I have seasoned it with vintage lined buttons hand-dyed with natural indigo. They are dyed in 7 different shades of natural indigo graduating from dark to light along the front of the shirt.

I spend a good part of my time pouring over vintage shirts that are traded from Western shores into the second markets of West Africa. I cherry picked a fine selection on my last trip to Ghana in one of West Africa's largest second hand markets, Kantamanto. This striped one is a gem. It's a beautiful oversized linen shirt and perfect if you like some gentlewoman / workmen chique.
