Vintage 1950s Mens Shirt by La Paz California Neck Loop SS Checked Size L
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This is a wonderful 50s or early 60s era vintage shirt made under the “La Paz California” label - I’m thinking more 1950s due to the neck loop and long collar. The content label reads “80% Dacron 20% Cotton Permanent Press”. It has a loop and button closure at the neck, a long pointy collar, a six button front and two button bottom side adjustments in order to cinch the bottom. There is a single patch pocket at the left side of the chest. The fabric has a slight sheen in it and is made with a yellow and brown checked pattern with gradations of brown. The shirt is in very good condition, especially so for a 50s shirt - this doesn’t look to have seen much use at all. It is sized as a medium with an L label for large. Please note the following measurements for fit, taking the style of the shirt into consideration:
Shoulders: 19” across from shoulder/sleeve seam to shoulder/sleeve seam
Chest: 48” around, taken under the arms - 24” pit to pit
Overall length: 27 1/2”, measured flat
This is a great shirt - getting very difficult to find authentic 50s/early 60s era shirts like this, so a wonderful acquisition if you wear a large size!
