Though WTAPS have become renowned for their unique utility bent aesthetic of which military influences form a central tenet, it’s important to remember that the label accesses these military influences through an Americana-tinted lense.
At first glance, the WTAPS SLY SS shirt might simply seem to be the Tokyo-based label’s take on the Hawaiian shirt. However, this piece references the Japanese island of Okinawa—known for its beaches, humid climate, and the cultural influence of US troops stationed there—as much as Hawaii. Whatever the case, this open collar shirt will have you ready for rising temperatures.
This boxy-fit shirt features an all-over sun-drenched graphic print inspired by twentieth-century pin-ups. Here in the white colourway, this shirt also features a chest patch pocket, straight hem, camp collar, woven WTAPS logo label, front button closure, and the WTAPS woven box logo above the bottom hem.
