Men's traditional shirt from Todos Santos, large and fancy.
The women of the village of Todos Santos Chuchumatanes make the clothing of their menfolk in the same way they make their own clothing. The striped fabric is hand-loomed on a backstrap loom, as are the heavily brocaded pieces which make up the collar and cuffs. All are then cut and sewn into a western-style shirt, which is usually closed up the front with metal pressure snaps. This style of shirt has been used for at least 50 years, but this garment is of post 2000 manufacture.
Measurements: maximum waist approx. 44 inches; length of sleeves from shoulder to cuff is 23 inches; width across top of shoulders is 21 inches. Length in the back from collar to hem is 30 inches. This shirt fits me and I wear a size large.
Condition: lightly used, a few spots or light soil and a few loose threads possible. This is a quite fancy and decorative garment in very nice condition
