Please read the instructions below this size chart before ordering. We have indicated whether this size chart uses body or garment measurements in the notes below the size chart. Allow 1cm variance for all garment measurements (as an example a 56cm garment measurement has a variance of 55-57cm. Please factor that into deciding on the size to order.)
To select cm (cm) or inches (in") please see the top left corner of the size chart table.

Three easy steps to ordering the right size:
You will need the following items:
• Measuring tape
• A flat surface (such as a table or counter)
• A notepad and pen
• An item of clothing from your wardrobe that fits comfortably and is similar to the one you wish to purchase (e.g. if you are looking at buying a collared shirt then use one of your own collared shirts to compare measurements to.)
Referring to the images above, place your garment on a flat surface and record the following measurements:
A. 1/2 Chest: Measure across the front of the shirt from armpit to armpit. Please make sure that your shirt is pulled flat across the chest, but not so tight that the buttons start to pull sideways.
B. Sleeve Overarm: Measure from the end of the cuff to the shoulder seam.
C. Centre Back Length: Measure from the nape of the neck on the back of the shirt to the bottom hem.
Compare your measurements with our size chart and order the size closest to those 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.
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.
Please note: If you are unsure about which size to order, please contact us before ordering and we will help you as best we can.

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.
Say no to plastic packaging
Your Mara&Meru™ clothing is packaged in a recyclable paper bag. At The Safari Store, we are working hard to eliminate plastic from all of our packaging. This forms part of our commitment to a green future and the preservation of the environment, so future generations can enjoy pristine natural spaces.
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.
