The safari look was in with movie people.

Sleeves rolled up to your elbows.

Unbuttoned a little.

Dark aviator glasses.

There’s a link between a feather-light cotton in a sun reflecting tone and sultry conditions (I hear the mercury can rise in Beachwood Canyon). Perhaps directors, producers and actors wanted to carry the encapsulating world they lived for those few months back with them; after all, going from Out of Africa to traffic on Sunset is a bit strange.

Perhaps they loved Hemingway’s books.

Or was it simply the idea of conquest?

You’ve stood toe to toe with prehistoric beasts, a screaming executive producer and leeches from the Zambezi and lived to tell the tale.

Whatever the reason, there is something unsaid about a man in a lightweight safari shirt. You don’t know exactly what it is, only that the stakes were high.

The Lightweight Safari Shirt (No. 4981). Lightweight 100% cotton poplin. Point collar with removable stays. Epaulettes with button at shoulder. Convertible long sleeves with tab and button for rolling to elbow. Patch pocket with flap and button on left sleeve. Two patch pockets at chest with flap and button. Back yoke with center box pleat. Imported.
