explorer shirt . stripes


A shirt? It's an explorers must. A striped shirt? Could make an explorer irresistible. I have seasoned it with vintage linen buttons hand-dyed with natural indigo for a regal touch of luxury.

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, Accra. This striped one is a gem. It's a beautiful granddad shirt made from a good weight cotton and perfect if you like some gentlewoman / workmen chique.
