LC Short-Sleeve Silk Shirt
People in the Caribbean move with an easy rhythm seldom seen in our latitudes.
It's the slow-down influence of a tropical climate, I suppose, plus the example set by all the curving, swaying palm trees.
And it's not just the sensual market women in Guadeloupe, either. It's the wiry fishermen on the beach in Bequia and the sharp businessmen in Hamilton, walking to work in dressy short-sleeve shirts and pleated Bermudas.
I was reminded of this recently when I saw a gentleman, obviously Haitian, approximately 300 glistening solid pounds, strolling through Boston Common, of all places, in black slacks and a shirt like this one.
He flowed along the lush oak-lined path with a slight, slow side-to-side motion, a kind of formidable ease.
Might not hurt to cultivate it.
Short-Sleeve Silk Shirt (No. 2312). Cut big from a substantial silk twill, for lots of drape and movement. Wide, almost elbow-length sleeves. Straight hem with side slits, to be worn untucked. Double back yoke, eight shell buttons, and lots of topstitching.
Right at home at the Fairmont Hamilton, the smell of hibiscus and those frisky dolphins at the dockyard.
