Natural Stripe LS
This item is final sale and not eligible for return or exchange.
Sometimes a stripe is not simply a stripe. This shirt walks the line between a contemporary, playful pajama stripe and a classic prep stripe, making the shirt a highly wearable and extremely sexy article of clothing. The fabric is 100% linen with stripes of yarn dyed indigo. The linen is a hardy variety suited for summer evenings and windy beach days. This will become a shirt to cherish- likely to be stolen by a lover, partner, or random cousin as it dries on a sunny porch. I'm not saying that you should buy two, but this shirt probably won't last a lifetime by your side, and that's probably for the best. For whomever it ends up with - it will be a momento of your good taste and, generally, your memory. There are few things more lovely than giving someone a shirt that you have worn and broken in such that it has become part of you.
Of course, to receive a shirt in a box is special, but to receive a worn garment is a different type of intimacy even in energy transference, if you're into that type of thing. The alternative gift is a well-read book with the notes and dog ears of past readings, but that may just live on a shelf. A shirt is functional and metaphorically read more than once, maybe even multiple times a month. I think that clothes can sometime have that predictive heirloom feeling - especially when it checks all the right boxes. So, maybe wear this for three summers, and pass it on as a very special gift.

Fabric Milling: This fabric was designed by and milled exclusively for Corridor
Responsibility: What does responsibility mean? People talk a lot about transparency and sustainability. I think the sum is responsibility. For Corridor, this means that we actually work in the factory with the tailors every season to create the garments and ensure the workshops are environmentally certified (ISO 9001) and socially accountable (SA 8000). You can feel good knowing where and how the garment was made.
