Late 1940s into early 1950s washable rayon sport shirt from Enro features a vivid, stylized print of trees, trellises, and garden gates in teal, red, yellow and white. The repeating “scenes” of the print have a Persian art-inspired feel to them, and are laid out in a grid-like formation (with some scenes sideways and some upside down).
Styled with short sleeves; two front flap pockets; pointy, convertible loop collar; and pleated back yoke, the shirt closes with pearly white plastic buttons, 4 large and 1 small.
Label reads “Del Monte Designs by Enro”; tagged size is 14/14.5, with washing instructions provided. Enro offered its “Del Monte” line from the mid-40s through about 1950, but since washable rayon shirts in what were referred to as “wild” prints were especially popular from 1949-1952, I believe this shirt to date from within that range.
Exact measurements are: Chest 42”, shoulders 16.5”, and length 30”.
