South Street Linen's Boyfriend Shirt - Made in Maine

100% Linen - Made in Maine
Portland, Maine's South Street Linen makes high quality, all linen garments, and made in Maine using local seamstresses and a master printer on Vinalhaven Island.

One important attribute of their garments is comfort, and this Boyfriend Shirt is no exception.  It is effortless to wear, and the linen is beautiful - feeling strong but soft.  And it is very cool in this summer weather.
From their site:
Our commitment to the re-emerging textile community in Maine means we keep our manufacturing local. We consider ourselves part of the growing "slow fashion" movement, where quality and enduring design in small batches takes precedence over mass production. 
It is easily cared for - machine wash, air dry and left wonderfully naturally wrinkled.

The shirts are generously sized and it is shown in their size 1.

The Boyfriend Shirt buttons all the way down the front and has longer tails in the back.
From their site: "We design clothes and objects we would like for ourselves and have discovered a whole world of women that love them the way we do."

There is plenty of room for movement through the shoulders and arms.  And the rolled-up sleeves stay rolled-up.

  1. This may get banned, but I love it when my wife wears my button up shirts.

  2. I figure the pearls in this photo shoot are by Demoiselle; so if you don't mind, would you please tell the precise length of the strand, and the precise size of the individual pearls you're wearing with this shirt. Rare to have a photo of size and length of pearls exactly as one wants them to be. Thank you! [Oh yeah, great shirt!]

    1. Yes they are Demoiselle. They are the 18" strand of 8mm pearls in classic white.

  3. The linen shirt is handsomely attractive, but pray tell, where are the clogs from? Hannah Anderson? I'm so drawn to the pink color.

    1. Yes, Hanna Andersson, 2004, made in Sweden.

    2. Loved Hanna for my daughter during the 80s - she had a pair of red clogs but I never did. I wish they still carried a variety of colors. They're great fun to wear.

    3. Two references were made to Cape Clogs below so I checked them out. They are styled almost exactly as Muffy's 2004 pair but they only come in pale pink. Hanna Anderson sells Maguba brand but their selection is limited so I check out the Maguba website. They have a deeper shade of pink that is attractive but the classic style has a pointier heal as opposed to Muffy's style and I'm not sure I like it as well. Thank you for the reference Anon @11:20 and Patsy - good resource!

  4. I love the sophistication of linen and this shirt's neckline. The shoes remind me of Cape Clogs.

  5. Cape Clogs and Hanna Andersson clogs are very close in fit and quality. I have both and love both - I actually have these very same pink ones!

    Muffy - do you think you need anything underneath this shirt (cami?). I LOVE it, but hate when white shirts are too sheer......

    1. I would say that this white is right in the middle - certainly not the most sheer that I have seen, but does not give the same amount of coverage as a white oxford shirt.

    2. Thank you! Sounds like I need to get in there on my next trip to Portland!
