1960s White Safari Style Shirt Jacket, by Melka, 49in Chest
I love the safari style in menswear, it makes it look like someone is on the way to an adventure! From the 1960s, this off white shirt jacket by Melka looks like a linen jacket and has the classic details that are expected on a safari jacket; the D-rings, epaulettes and pockets (for snacks of course). At the back there is an elastic panel to fit so it will show off that hero body. Wear as a shirt with jeans, or a jacket over a tee with shorts, or for the full look, team with white trousers......and maybe a leather Indiana Jones hat!
