This disco style shirt made under the Positano City Charles Lapson label is made from soft polyester knit velour material that’s not your typical thick plush velour. This material, instead, lends itself more to a shirt than sweater as it is thinner and stretchy fabric with a very interesting scenic landscape print. There are lots of mountains and blue skies in the print as well as some dramatic dark silhouettes of trees. Some of the reddish mountains remind me of those found in southern Utah while the others or more like the snow capped mountains found in the northern part of the state. The colors in the print are several shades of blue, purple, orange, a little bit of golden yellow and several shades of brown. There’s almost a patchwork look to this attractive print. The shirt closes at the front with seven small round brown plastic buttons. The sleeves are long and they fasten at the cuff with two small brown round buttons. The shirt is fitted at the back with darts on each side of the shirt. Inner seams are well finished with overlock seams. Although this shirt was originally meant to be worn by a man, I do believe it also could be worn by a woman.
Condition: Very Good
No issues to note.
Label: Positano City Charles Lapson
There is a care and fabric content label attached to an inner seam. Due to washings the writing has faded to the point that it is barely readable. I can read that the fabric content is 100% Polyester and the shirt was made in the U. S. A. Washing instructions indicate that the shirt can be hand washed cold water with no bleach and dry flat. Dry Cleaning is recommended. I did hand wash this shirt in cold water using mild detergent with no bleach additives and air dried (no dryer).
Although “Large” is indicated as the size of this shirt, it is not a size Large by today’s standards. Possibly size “Medium” but keep in mind that the back is somewhat fitted and as always, please refer to the Measurements given below to make sure that you get a proper fit.
