detailed distressed lightweight black/teal button-down shirt jacket

This jacket is so versatile - wear it buttoned two different ways as a shirt, wear it unbuttoned as a jacket, dress it way down, or dress it up - and it's lightweight and comfortable. Features embroidery, appliqué, hand-painting and distressing which are all signatures of the artist. The cotton is lightweight Egyptian cotton with a crisp and cool feel and crinkable if desired, the cotton is so pliable. Or iron it out for a smooth look. This particular jacket also features a long line of buttons, a collar that can be dramatic, and an option of buttoning it up on the other side if desired. Great avant-garde city look. Product code: V8549

Hand wash.

General cleaning instructions for all garments (also see care tag inside the clothing) are as follows:

  • Any garment can be dry-cleaned with the gentle/delicates method.
  • Items marked 'hand wash' can be washed by hand (not in the gentle or hand-wash machine cycle), separately, as briefly as possible, with minimal amount of mild detergent, particularly for hand-painted items. Follow with the spin cycle of the washing machine, and finish in medium heat dryer, unless hang-drying is recommended, which is the case for most knits.
  • Hand-pressing is recommended on most items after the wash and dry to straighten out the seams and edges which tend to pucker or curl on natural fabrics.
  • Some hand-dyed items may leak a bit of color during the washing, that is normal and will not affect the item. Using liquid softener during the wash will minimize any color leaking.
