Label: Avanti

Material:  Silk

 Origin: China


The next twelve shirts are from two lots I bought on eBay... you know the drill, shirts in a heap, poorly photographed and inadequately described, do I gamble or not? Too bad these sellers don't realize how much a lackluster listing can hurt a sale. The two lots netted me sixteen shirts and the first one out of the first box was this silk Avanti. Jackpot, this shirt paid for both lots. While I'm not big on what I call the Hawaiian "tourist pattern" shirts (you know, postcards, hotels, ukeleles...), I must admit this one is growing on me. I don't know how old it is but it must be fairly new, the red is still incredibly intense. Even on the monitor it jumps out at you and it's even more vivid in person.
