American Archetype Shirt
Figures of great American literature take on a life of their own, perhaps even managing to convince the general public that the book written about them be regarded as pure fiction, as though they didn’t exist.
These iconic figures from the lost generation walked into rooms wearing a shirt with no collar. Even a little thing like that made people talk.
Our uncompromising replica of these shirts has the same simple band collar. The placket is simpler, also narrower. The Portuguese cotton we have used is so luminous, in and of itself, that even a person who notices nothing will notice something.
The characters upon which these stories are based, of course, could afford stacks of these shirts—rooms of them. Never mind. All that matters is that you have one, just one. A piece of how things were.
American Archetype Shirt (No. 6656). We sold this shirt before under a different name. Surely you remember. Dapper and modern on men, irresistible on women. Two-button cuffs, real shell buttons. Imported.
