Journeyman’s Shirt

Similar to the Outback Shirt, this collarless striped shirt was sold in the Summer 1988 catalogue. Check out the unusual coconut-husk buttons. Thanks, Gary Pinkerton for the pics!

“Time was when a man didn’t just roll up his sleeves to do an honest day’s work, he also removed his collar. Our Journeyman’s Shirt honors the artisan’s spirit with it’s slubbed weave, reminiscent of fine, lightweight homespun; its handcrafted coconut-hull buttons; and its generous shape. A shirt that’s served its apprenticeship and is ready to make its was in the world–whether laboring or journeying.”
