This garment is dedicated to my Arab culture. My ancestry comes from ancient Babylonia which is present-day Baghdad, Iraq where the Tigris and the Euphrates rivers meet. In ancient Babylon, the paisley pattern was said to resemble an uncurled date palm, a flowering plant species in the palm family. The plant was a source of life's basic necessities and produced food, wine, paper, and even shelter. Ancient Babylonians viewed the date as a symbol of prosperity, and thus the paisley pattern sprung into life as a result.
The button down consists of a crotchet knitted cotton blend that pairs perfectly with the summer heat. It features dyed buttons to match the Ivory color and a Cuban collar. The cut is boxy and slightly cropped. It fits true to size but if you want it to fit oversized we recommend sizing up. This will be your go to shirt for going out this summer guaranteed.
