The Africa Floral Short Sleeve Button Down from Gitman Vintage is made from a hearty 100% Cotton Broadcloth Oxford milled in the United States to be a sturdy staple for warm weather. This unique design is created by an African Ankara wax print process that is a block printing method inspired by batik, using wax and ink to build up the bold dyes and then boiled to reveal the vivid design. African wax print fabrics employ specific colors and patterns that reflect local traditions and iconography, and are often leveraged as a form of non-verbal communication. For a modern short sleeve shirt that's based in tradition, the Africa Floral print of Black lines over a White field with bright Cobalt Blue and Marigold flowers provides a sense of global style in a breathable, substantial, and durable broadcloth that will soften and patina beautifully with repeated wearing and washing. Made with a non-buttoned short length Joe Collar for a modern take on a regional throwback, this Gitman is replete with original details like chalk buttons, a locker loop, and a final horizontal button hole in green thread. This piece comes in the new modern slim fit with a slightly less dramatic hem sweep and straighter body, as a variation to the signature fit that remains the same tailored "just right" cut for most body types. Gitman Vintage shirts are classic, simple, original and have a casual sophistication that make them a standard wardrobe piece for many well-dressed men.

Gitman Vintage shirts are washed post-production so expect some size variation between different fabrics. There is little to no shrinkage when washed and dried properly. Africa Floral in the New Tailored Fit does run a touch smaller than typical Gitman sizing. For a normal wearing and fit preference, take the larger size of your range.
