Stenstroms – four pocket stretch over-shirt
The importance of having go-to quality garments to hand cannot be underestimated and gone are the days of having a wardrobe full of shirts that are falling to pieces. Instead, today, most of us have a more carefully considered offer in front of us when we open top the closet doors.
A few years ago we started to write about Stenstroms. A brand we had discovered a few years ago via friends of ours in London and a story that was as lovely as the clothing they produce – for both men and women I might add.
Now more than 122 years old, the Stenstroms brand started life back in Helsingborg, South West Sweden and made its name on the back of ship captains lauding the product as they travelled the globe, always stopping off to get another shirt on the next visit.
Today, the brand goes from strength to strength, maintaining it’s signature sophistication but ‘always relevant’ look with the very best in craftsmanship, fabric and attention to detail at its core.
As we hit high summer, we have picked out the perfect Stenstroms shirt for your trip overseas (fingers crossed for navigating the airport chaos). A lightweight, premium over-shirt from the 1899 collection, this piece features a four-pocket front and mother of pearl buttons.
Perfect to team with light cotton or linen shorts or equally trousers of the same fabric, the over-shirt comes in a stretch cotton fabric and ideal for early evening drinks before dinner or onto a reception.
