This most outstanding shirt is hand tie-dyed, meaning each one is unique. Though honestly, the chances of turning up to a party where anyone else is wearing a shirt of this calibre are slim to none. Not only most excellent in looks, this short-sleeved travel shirt is also really quite practical – unless you're trying to blend into a crowd. It's got a single chest pocket with a pen slot, and a hidden 'party pocket' in the hem for your, erm, small essentials. The 3oz cotton poplin is light and breathable for all kinds of adventures (time travel etc.), with a relaxed fit that won't cramp your style on the dancefloor. Party on, dudes

Now here’s an origin story for you. Back in the early nineties, fishing boat skipper Barry Barr was fed up with wearing cheap trucker caps that got snatched off his head in storms, never to be seen again. He decided to make a super-durable cap that wouldn’t blow off whatever the weather, and he did it by stitching the webbing material from a Teva sandal all the way around the crown. Turned out his ‘Strapcap’ was a hit, and KAVU was born.
From humble beginnings flogging Strapcaps out of the boot of his car in Seattle, Barry’s since expanded to produce a whole array of durable outdoor kit with a laid-back, van-lifer vibe. The KAVU range takes in everything from sling bags to swim shorts, and while they’re serious about producing great gear that’s made to last, they’re also not afraid to have a laugh. Their prints are bold, playful, and in some cases so loud that they’ll take some considerable chutzpah to carry off – but that’s what makes them so much fun.
