Vintage 1950s VLV Sheer Sea Green Nylon Menswear Loop Summer Shirt XL

Classic men's summer sportswear loop shirt of sheer nylon in the softest shade of pale pale pale sea green, it is really just a whisper of color!

This measures:

46" chest

18 1/2" shoulder

28" Length

6 1/2" from neck point to shoulder point

8 1/2" sleeve

this translates to a contemporary L to XL size; we ask that you please compare our measurements to the measurements of a comfortable shirt of your own to be sure of sizing, thank you!

This is freshly laundered and ready to wear; the only issue is a snag on the left chest pocket, with a couple of pulled threads also along the center front between the button holes and edge ~ they would be easy to pull back out ~ we simply have not taken the extra time to do so.

These loop shirts with the larger collar like this were popular in the late 1940s, as well ~ this could date a bit earlier than the 50s.


my dad wore these kind of comfortable lightweight shirts in the summertime to our very fun family reunions and picnics back in the 50s and 60s ~ always with a fresh white t-shirt or undershirt, sometimes buttoned up, sometimes open at the neck.


couldn't be more perfect for Vegas...VLV is April 17-20 this spring.
