Product Details

Great Expeditions.

More than 7,900 miles from the boardroom. Supply truck packed to the hilt with enough creature comforts to keep us afield for a month. (This isn’t the 1836 expedition of Cornwallis Harris crossing the Transvaal in an ox wagon.)

The provisioner even outfitted me with a stash of breathable cotton shirts and sturdy canvas shorts. 

The lions are restless, our guide warns, and I feel every nerve coil around a few stubborn shreds of bravado.

A sensation that will never quite subside until I board the plane in Nairobi.

Every night, we eat, drink a little, push stacks of poker chips back and 
forth across the table.

Rifles close at hand. Our dials tuned to the roar of a lion five kilometers away, maybe three, sometimes less.

Luck doing most of the reckoning, on and off the table. The stakes, never higher.

The Provisioner’s Field Shirt (No. J8299). Pure broad cotton long sleeve shirt made the way they did in the ‘40s. Distinguishing features include side vents, button-down back collar, and roll tab sleeves. Two patch-and-flap chest pockets. Khaki shell buttons. Imported.
