              I got this shirt and several others from NGS, for hot weather science conferences in Hawai'i and Las Vegas (I know, but somebody has to do it). Plenty formal for casual seminars, great material, airy details, keeps it size through washings. Several Central American colleagues asked where I got it - I told them NGS.

                          This shirt arrived looking exactly as shown. The size was also accurate. Great shirt for ventilation. I bought it because my husband gets hot (and is). It is perfect. Haven't had it cleaned yet so I don't know how it holds up, but being a seamstress, it appears to be made extremely well.

                          Lace-making is a relatively recent addition to the vast textile history of the Indian subcontinent. In the 1800s, especially in the eastern coastal Godavari regions, lace-making was introduced as way for poor women to earn an income while still being able to stay home and care for their families. The lace insets that grace the shoulders of this cotton shirt are exactly the type of embellishment that women were creating for export more than 200 years ago. The front is also hand- embroidered with floral patterns in white and ivory. Features tabbed 3/4-length sleeves and a relaxed Mandarin-style collar.

                          Like all explorers, we love outdoor adventure but could live without the bugs. This pullover shirt makes that possible. A tight but cool and breathable, 100% cotton weave; a zippered, sheer mesh face panel; elastic wrist-bands; and a drawstring bottom cover you up completely and lock out even tiny insects. With ventilator panels of poly mesh for comfort, it's lightweight, easy to pack, comfortable, and better than messy repellents. Folds into its own pocket. Made in Canada.

                          Popular nationwide since the 1930s, the aloha shirt reflects Hawaii’s island culture and Japanese cultural influence.

The colorful, crease-resistant cotton lawn fabric is breathable and looks polished even in hot or humid weather. Features mother-of-pearl shell buttons. Handmade in Honolulu, Hawaii, by the only American manufacturer of its kind.

                          The best travel clothes are ones that will stand up to anything you can throw at them. Our rugged cotton twill shirt is great for long days on the road, working around the house, or even casual offices. It’s enzyme-washed for a soft, broken-in feeling, but it’s tough enough to take on miles of travel.

                          Ikat is a complex weaving style in which motifs are created not just on the loom but also before the threads are even dyed. For our rich blue cotton shirt, Guatemalan weavers begin by wrapping thick skeins of thread at intervals according to traditional family patterns. This tie-dyeing is what creates the range of blue and natural colors in our woven shirt. The technique is far more time-consuming and sophisticated than traditional plain, striped, or plaid weaves. Handwoven in Totonicapán, Guatemala.

                          Shekhawati, in northern India, is known as the “open art gallery of Rajasthan” because of the thousands of intricate frescoes that decorate the walls and ceilings of palaces, forts, and temples. The patterns on this 100% cotton shirt are taken from a local haveli (private mansion) and give just a hint at the abundance of geometric and arabesque decoration to be found in Shekhawati.

                          The iconic navy and white stripes of our Women's French Sailor Boatneck shirt is based on a pattern originally intended for deep sea fishermen in Breton, but that has since been adopted by seafarers and yachtsmen across the ages. The sweaters were originally worn by “marchand d’ail,” sellers of garlic and onions who sailed from Brittany to England with their wares. Eventually the French Navy adopted the tight-knit wool design, but only sailors and new recruits wore stripes—officers alone were permitted to wear solid colors.

                          Mexican artist Frida Kahlo was known for her eclectic wardrobe that featured traditional Zapotec blouses and skirts as well as pieces from northern Mexico, Guatemala, and beyond. Our cotton Mexican market-day outfit is inspired by that diversity, with a vivid pink blouse and black broomstick skirt made in the villages surrounding Oaxaca state on opposite sides of the Isthmus of Tehuantepec. Both the blouse and skirt are hand-dyed in Oaxaca. The semisheer broomstick skirt is ideal for travel—the wrinkles are part of the style. The blouse is embroidered in both Oaxaca and Chiapas by women using a geometric style named for the highland village of Chamula. It's relaxed, breezy style could be worn belted for a more fitted look. Together or as separates, these pieces reflect a flattering, breezy Mexican style that’s perfect for warm-weather exploring. Hues may vary slightly from those pictured because the cotton is hand-dyed.
