Lela Jacobs Propa Shirt- Silk Noil



the Lela Jacobs Propa Shirt is a limited edition shirt made and finished with shell buttons and a handy chest pocket. They are a generous length and width in both body and arm and have a slightly wider neck than previous Propa shirts.

Size: One size fits most - Very oversized as a size 8-12. Slightly oversized on a size 14-16
Feels like raw linen cotton, when in fact is made from a thick raw silk, with a matte texture to it. 

Silk noil = Sometimes referred to as poor mans silk is made from leftover cocoons and short lengths. Slubby in texture and a favourite for its easy care.
