The dream of island living drawn up in retro style and sewn into a classic short sleeve shirt. These are the Island Fantasy Short Sleeves.
Sometimes you need to wear a shirt to transport yourself, or at least your mood. Most of us aren't kicking back in a tropical paradise but a vintage shirt like this at least gives us a touch of that breezy calm. From palms to pineapples a vintage island fantasy adorns this light weight poplin in nicely contrasting colors. The base color really defines the look. Go dark for or colorful and bright and enjoy the sun.
Our short sleeve button-up fits just like the long sleeve. It shares the same beautifully tailored body, not too slim, but definitely fitted. High armholes keep the body lines clean. A very gently scooped bottom hem that works wonderfully un-tucked or tucked. A no-button collar that’s perfectly sized to sit well.
We labor over every construction detail. Extensive single needle stitching is used throughout. All our closures are made from true mother of pearl. The front placket is also pleated, made the right way, using a true two piece construction. The feel is more substantial and the effort higher, but it's the right way. A rounded chest pocket completes the front.
Button-up shirts that are made in the USA using our quality of material and construction are typically priced at $175 to $300. The Gustin model, with your support, lets us do much better.
