1970s Bullocks Wilshire Striped Shirt

 

 

At the risk of offending those men with a more sophisticated appreciation for fashion, bear with us a moment and allow us a quick lesson to educate the more basic breed of guy who doesn't know the difference between bengaline and burlap (and probably doesn't care). Okay honey, listen up - the 'hand' of a fabric is the way it feels - that's right, in your hand. Is it supple or stiff? Is it lightweight or heavy? Is it soft or scratchy? More precisely - does it feel good? You know that if it doesn't feel good on your body, you're not going to wear it. But you know what else? If it doesn't have a nice hand, others don't want to feel it on your body either, ya dig? So trust us when we tell you the hand of this shirt is very inviting. In an acetate/nylon blend, it isn't too slinky or sleazy; it hangs beautifully and feels really, really gooooood. A pale terracotta with a bit of ivory and black in it, the stylized herringbone weave of the fabric has the slightest sheen to it, and is very, very subtly textured to lend a bit of tactile stimulation.  Made in Spain, it is tagged a 39/Medium/15 1/2 with a chest measurement of 44", shoulder 19", sleeve 27", length 31". Bearing a Bullock's Wilshire label, it is in excellent condition.  $75
