This cool menswear shirt has Safari influence in the epaulets on the shoulders, the khaki color, the split finish side seam hem, and the military corner patch pockets.

This has an additional patch pocket above the standard flap pocket on the front, it has a zippered closure and is a functioning pocket with a lining to the back.

Long sleeves. Double button cuffs.

Button front shirt. Back yoke.

Labeled size Medium, this measures:

41” chest

This slightly tapers in to a 38” waist, approximately, and then back out to 42” around the hem.

This shaping was often referred to European styling, rather than just a straight cut.

18” shoulder point to shoulder point

2.75” collar point length

28.5” long from center back of the neck to the hem

24.5” sleeve length

65% polyester, 35% cotton

We photographed this on our female mannequin, however it is a menswear shirt but it looks great on a woman, too.

From the Kennington website:

Started in Los Angeles in 1957, Kennington Ltd. is an iconic men's apparel brand credited with bringing "California Style" to the masses, across the U.S. and internationally.

Founded by Stan Tendler, a fashion revolutionary credited with many apparel firsts, Kennington Ltd. has survived through seven fashion generations.

Condition: freshly laundered, ready to wear. We want to note, however, that when we acquired this (from a theater acquistion) the inside of the collar had a piece of masking tape with a name written on it. We removed the tape and laundered the shirt, however, the inside of the collar is slightly discolored from that tape. This is not visible when worn, though.
