Cuban, Camp, Spread or Bowling – whatever you call the loose, easy and casual spread collar of the short sleeve it doesn’t really matter, as long as you have one. The Cuban collar – as we have chosen to call it - is a far cooler and comfortable alternative to the classic shirt this summer, and it also continues to pay homage to the laidback 1950s trend that re-emerged last year. This Fuji Hokusai short sleeve shirt from Percival is one of our favourite styles, as it features a signature Fuji design that has been woven and printed exclusively in Japan.
