Five Pocket Island Shirt - Green Ikat

There’s no doubt that the traditional, ultra-cool four-pocket Cuban guayabera is comfortable and convenient for easy-access storage. And the Hawaiian shirt is the height of laid back fun. The Battenwear Five-Pocket Island Shirt is the perfect marriage of the two. The fifth pocket? They added this for early morning subway rides to New York's Rockaway Beach - it's just the right size for a metro (PRESTO =) card...and a $5 bill so you can get your cup of coffee and a snack from the bodega before hitting the waves. This Ikat fabric was chosen in part because of its  imperfections. The way that the fabric is dyed means that some bleeding occurs (although Battenwear does wash the fabric before sewing the garments to minimize this issue for the wearer). In addition, the surface of the fabric is not uniform - it often has bumps and ridges and runs from the way the cotton is spun and woven. We love this about the fabric, but we also wish to give a "heads up" to anyone who is not familiar with Ikat cottons, so that they are not surprised by the material's eccentricities.
