The Short Sleeve Tail Shirt from Tender is quite the shirt. It sits somewhere between a chore jacket and a work shirt, and with that relaxed fit and those big pockets it’s got a definite ‘Derek Jarman searching for interesting bits of flotsam and jetsam at Dungeness’ aura to it. This one is made out of some thick waffle cotton that was originally designed to protect beekeepers from getting stung*. It’s also worth knowing that it’s been dyed with woad. This is a plant extract that’s been used for thousands of years, and it’ll wear in an absolute treat.
*Please don’t hassle bees whilst wearing this shirt — it has got short sleeves after all.
