Things are heating up outside, and if you’re like me, your armpits are probably starting to feel like a river ride in the wrong direction on the river Styx. Jelado came to the rescue, however, with the release of their Ventilation Shirt, a stylish play on Hercules brand shirts of the 1920s and 1930s, including the key inclusion of eyelets under each armpit and at the shoulders for ventilation. And that makes for a breathable, lightweight shirt that’s great for adventuring around, shooting the breeze someplace warm and everywhere in between.
Made in Japan, the Ventilation Shirt uses triple stitched seams throughout with an extra-credit saddle shoulder yoke for durability, adding further versatility and ensuring it will last a long time. And because it should last a long time, the 100% cotton chambray fabric its made of should also patina nicely, as will the brass buttons.
Tie it all together with two flapped buttoned chest pockets to hang your sunglasses from, and you’re ready for summer. And when you consider all the money you’ll save on deodorant, this shirt pays for itself!
Available from Clutch Cafe for £199 ($235 USD).
