The shirt for you to wear in the evening after a long day in the sun on safari - the Out of Africa way. Transplant a bit of classic panache into every day with the shirt that is a perfect fit anywhere.
If you’re looking for clothing that embodies the romanticism of classic safaris, the white shirt is an iconic fashion piece. In the wake of the heat and dust of a day out on safari, a crisp white shirt is a simple way to look dapper next to the campfire, listening to the crackle of the flames, the distant roar of a lion, or the whoop of a hyena.
A great white shirt is elemental to any man’s wardrobe. This classic shirt can be stylishly cool and casual over a pair of shorts or tucked into a pair of trousers for a more formal look. Its versatility makes it a lifestyle shirt that is a perfect fit in both far flung places and urban spaces – for travel, work, casual wear, or for a night out.
The striking look of the Quintessential White Shirt is amplified by the subtle styling and Mara&Meru™ features. The seams of the stretch poplin shirt are placed for the best fit and look of the shirt when wearing. These and other design finishes such as the unimposing ribbon lining on the inside of the collar and concealed alongside the buttonholes on the front of the shirt are special additions for an added touch of luxury.
The two button-up chest pockets are handy, functional, and contribute to the appeal of the overall design. The long sleeves of the Mara&Meru™ Quintessential Shirt can be conveniently and stylishly rolled up and secured by means of our specially-developed double roll-up tabs on the sleeves. The sunglasses loops on the inside of the shirt are an industry first and were designed to secure your sunglasses to your shirt to stop them falling out when you bend over.
Mara&Meru™ Quintessential White Shirt – Further Information:
⊙ MATERIAL: Made from 100% highest quality stretch poplin.
⊙ FIT AND DETAIL: The Mara&Meru™ Quintessential White Shirt is a classic button-up shirt. The placement of the seams and subtle design detail of the ribbon along the inside of the collar and concealed alongside the buttonholes on the front of the shirt all complement the overall look of the shirt.
⊙ DOUBLE ROLL-UP SLEEVE TABS: The long sleeves with single-button cuffs of the Mara&Meru™ Quintessential White Shirt can be rolled up and secured by the double button and loop sleeve tabs. The tabs secure the sleeves when they're rolled up but remain hidden when sleeves are down. We have added in a second sleeve tab per sleeve as an adaptation based on our expedition testing.
⊙ SUNGLASSES LOOPS: An industry first! Many of us carry our sunglasses hooked over the top button of our shirts but, as we all know, our sunglasses often fall out when we bend over. We tested and trialled new sunglasses loops on the inside of the shirt. To prevent your sunglasses from falling out, simply use the first loop to secure them in place. If you are doing more active outdoor activities or for extra peace of mind, loop through the top and bottom loop. It is a simple solution, but highly effective.
By its very nature, stretch poplin wrinkles relatively easily. When travelling, we advise hanging the Mara&Meru™ Quintessential White Shirt on arrival at your hotel or lodge.

Three easy steps to ordering the right size: ⊙ With so many different brands from all over the world available on the high street and online, the only way to get your size right the first time round is to compare a garment you own and which fits you well with one of our garments. STEP 1: ⊙ You will need a measuring tape, a flat surface such as a table, a notepad to record your garment's measurements - and your own collared long sleeve shirt which is a comfortable fit. ⊙ Tip: If you do not have a measuring tape, use your credit card. The long side of a credit card measures 8.5cm and the short side is 5.4cm. Simply use the centimetre measurements on our chart and divide by 8.5cm to get an idea of how many credit card lengths equals the measurement you are recording. STEP 2: Referring to the images above, place your shirt flat on the table and record the following measurements: ⊙ 1/2 Bust/Chest - Across the front of the shirt from armpit to armpit; ⊙ Centre Back Length - From the nape of the neck on the back of shirt to the bottom hem; ⊙ Sleeve Overarm - From the top of the sleeve where it joins the shoulder to the end of the cuff. STEP 3: Compare your measurements with our size chart and order the size closest to your measurements. Chest/bust is usually the most important measurement if you are in a hurry, but checking all three will make for the most comfortable fit.
