The Most Practical Summer Shirt For The Knock About Aussie

This customer of mine, he really should be a model with his Scottish salt and pepper good looks, but being Australian and too tough for all that, he works in demolitions. Which is why he needs a practical shirt. A few years ago he told me that he wore pop-over shirts religiously and had a few dozen made in a very sturdy workwear cotton that he could wear on building sites. However, his love of pop-overs then creeped into his extra-curricular time and he found himself drinking coffee on a Saturday in the same said shirt. So, his request was to make a pop-over in a more luxurious fabric for the weekend. He dropped past yesterday to pick these beauties up. They are made of Canclini and Monti shirting cottons and they give him the flexibility to visit a worksite in the afternoon, then put a blazer on and head out for dinner. For the knock-about Australian I think this is just about the best shirt around. Would you like to make some for yourself?
