Women’s Expedition Shirt

From Spring 1987: “For the real down-and-dirty work of travel–shadeless desert treks, kidney-jolting Jeep rides, damp dawn encampments–there’s absolutely nothing to equal mediumweight cotton convas for comfort and durability. It feels good, looks great even when unpressed–those few strategic wrinkles are proof of hard-won experience. We modified our popular Expedition Shirt to fit a woman’s body and then added some practical touches: button tabs for rolled-up sleeves, easy-access flap pockets, epaulets. Pre-washed and rugged, it’s the backbone of the intrepid woman’s backpack.”
