Shirt 1866 Men’s Painter’s Shirt

The pictures below are not the same Painter’s Shirt shown in the catalog page: the buttons are on the man’s side and in the catalog the buttons are on the women’s. It is mostly marketed as a women’s shirt (the blue one is a little androgynous) but the size chart show both men and women.

But this shirt has a price tag with an item number 1866 that does not match the catalog. SO. It’s possible that they ended up making a Men’s version of the shirt #1866 with the buttons on the right and it was only sold in stores.

It’s a weird mystery.

A second Men’s Painter’s shirt surfaced on Poshmark the same week!
