Camel Hair Shirt
Matter of Substance.
An attractive woman might reach out and run her fingers lightly down your sleeve.
And then say, “This is nice. What is it?”
In which case you might have to confess, “Camel’s hair, actually.”
Otherwise, the fact that this shirt is made of camel’s hair might just as well be kept to yourself.
Because even in this enormously enlightened age, there are still people who would think a camel’s-hair shirt a bit indulgent. A bit sumptuous.
And they would be right.
The camel’s hair used in this shirt is indeed an uncommonly fine substance. Luxuriously soft. Drapes handsomely, in smooth, slightly thick, slightly luminous folds. Wears surprisingly well, too.
Perfect for roughing it in Old Westbury or (with tie) at the next board meeting; makes it permissible to drink coffee out of a styrofoam cup.
Camel’s-Hair Shirt (No. 1425). Impeccably constructed camel hair blend. Serious 2 3/4” point collar. Rounded corozo buttons, like discs of caramel.
All seams and edges (at collar, cuffs, plackets, sideseams, armholes, and hem) have a posh, piped look. Made in Portugal.
