Captain’s Button-down Collar Linen Shirt - in Mocha
A Captain’s role on a fishing boat includes many random chores that go beyond his ultimate responsibility as the “Master” on the vessel, which under maritime law, include all aspects of operation such as the safe navigation of the ship, its cleanliness and seaworthiness, safe handling of all cargo, management of all personnel, inventory of ship's cash and stores, maintaining the ship's certificates and documentation…and less we forget, the right to use deadly force to suppress piracy and mutiny. So, everyone, please behave!
No matter what the sea has put forth, when back at the dock with lines secured, engines silenced and the relentless sway of the sea calmed, it’s time for some well-earned personal tidying for both captain and crew.
And there’s no better combination to rejuvenate the senses and put those around at ease, than a freshwater shower followed by the donning of our Captain’s Uniform Shirt – light, airy and spry…pulled fresh from its assigned peg in the forward stateroom locker.
At first glance, it's doubtful you’ll appreciate the fit-and-finish that’s gone into the build of our Captain’s Uniform Shirt…the collar stand is a few mm’s taller than usual, and the shape is contoured and balanced to ride perfectly no matter how you choose to wear it. Its button-down points give the collar just the right amount of attitude while still commanding respect. A slightly narrowed and deepened front chest pocket won’t be obvious to all…nor will the slightly off-center buttons on the cuffs that make for a more relaxed fit when buttoned.
You will, however, immediately recognize the premium quality of its fabric as the sleeves glide up along your forearms and it begins to take shape as you draw it across your shoulders. Once saddled and buttons start meeting buttonholes, you’ll realize you are now wearing your new most favorite shirt. And what an ahoy moment this will be!
