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. Side vents. No pockets.
Made in India. 100% cotton. Men’s sizes M (38–40), L (42–44), XL (46–48).
I ordered this shirt in XXL and it arrived with a tag that said it was XXL but it had to be either a mens small or at best medium. This was not a case of just being a bit smaller but was way off (as in the buttons didn't come within 6 inches of buttoning). National geographic is an excellent company and does have great merchandise. I will mark this off as a manufacturing mistake and would order again (perhaps not this shirt).

Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
From National Geographic:Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback. We are sorry to hear that this shirt did not live up to expectations. We understand that you have already been in touch with our customer service office regarding an exchange.
Just got this shirt and I love it. Just a few points though. NG only seems to offer shirts in sizes medium and up, and some of their "mediums" are really big. This one wasn't too oversized, but I wish they'd offer small sizes too. That said, the length of this shirt seems a little short for the average person. Also, the tags on the shirt seem to be from a company that normaly only produces women's clothing (Parsley & Sage), but as this is a NGS exclusive item, I'll trust that it is, in fact, a men's shirt.
