SIZE

Our classic NIGHT-SHIRT was designed¹ for lazy elegance: a knee-length shirt with standing collar and no buttons, embellished with a simple piping. It can be worn to sleep, and ladies can even wear it as a Summer day-dress!

¹ by Eugène Le Moult for his house on the Maroni river (in the Amazon basin, the natural border to Dutch Guiana), great-grand-dad had adapted an office shirt to our original NIGHT-SHIRT
