A fantastic original British sports top by 'St Michael' in the 1970s.
This type of shirt was popular in the UK for many years and are often referred to as 'Rugby Shirts' due to their association with the sport. This example is made from a thick cotton in a striking two tone colourway of petrol and sky blue. It features a half-placket front which fastens with three buttons and a stand and fall collar. The cuff is a simple barrel cuff which fastens with a button.
Inside the neck of the shirt the original label is still present and bears the brand name of 'St. Michael' below which it says 'Made in the U.K.' There is a second label inside the shirt which again bears the Marks and Spencers St. Michael logo as well as the size of extra large. The shirt is designed to fit a 44" - 46" chest and when laid flat it measures -
Chest - 27"
Inside arm - 22"
Outside arm - 23 3/4"
Shoulders - 22 3/4"
Length - 30"
The shirt is in excellent unworn condition and is totally wearable. There are no signs of wear and age and overall it is in very good condition. Please take time to study the pictures however and bear in mind that this is a vintage item which may have small flaws commensurate with age.
A striking original British sports top!
