White Cotton/Linen Long Sleeve Cuban Shirt

£116 £81

Ideally suited for the warmer months, the long sleeve Cuban Shirt is a classic utilitarian design with a boxy, relaxed fit and iconic Cuban collar.

Our modern take on the classic utilises the same open collar, square hem and long sleeves. Available this season in a mixed range of colours and textures. A natural companion to our Box Pleat shorts and roomier Pleated Pant, we recommend spreading the collar over our summer weight Windsor jackets for a suitably debonair touch.

The story goes that an enterprising seamstress in a village in rural Cuba sewed large pockets onto her husband’s work shirt for ease in carrying guava home from the field. By the late 19th Century, the short sleeved loose garment, always worn untucked, was donned all over South America, becoming de rigeur formal wear in hot climes. In Mexico, it is even known as the “Wedding Shirt”. Vacationing Hollywood stars and historical icons such as Fidel Castro and Ernest Hemingway helped popularise the humble ‘Cuban’, bringing it to international recognition.

Available in other colours.
