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.)
Measure across the front of the shirt from armpit to armpit. Please make sure that your shirt is pulled flat across the bust/chest, but not so tight that the buttons start to pull sideways. It is also worth noting for a shirt that if you are uncertain about your size, going one size bigger usually makes only a small difference to the fit of the shirt. For example if your shirt measures 45cm across the bust, then please use your discretion to decide whether you should opt for a size XS or S for this shirt. We would probably suggest going for the Small.
Compare your measurement with our size chart and order the size closest to that measurement.
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.

Combining the classic and enduring elegance of a crisp white shirt with our Mara&Meru™ design features, the Great White Shirt is a chic and stylish fashion choice for work, travel, or everyday wear.
The feminine design of the Great White Shirt makes it a classic wardrobe favourite. Made from high quality stretch poplin, the sides of the shirt are tailored with the curves of the body in mind, giving it shape and form. It is also darted in the front and back for a flattering fit. The unimposing side slits are a subtle design feature that complement the overall look of the shirt.
The Mara&Meru™ Great White Shirt has two chest pockets which can be closed by means of a button. These functional additions also serve to further enhance the design of the shirt. The single button and loop system on the sleeves allows for the long sleeves to be comfortably, conveniently, and stylishly rolled up and fastened. 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. With classical styling in a colour that never goes out of fashion, as well as functional, convenient design features from the Mara&Meru™ range, this shirt is perfect for wearing at the lodge between game drives or as a stylish travel shirt. Incorporate the Great White Shirt into your every day for work, casual wear, or dressed up as a smart option for dinners or more formal occasions.

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™ Great White Shirt – Further Information:
⊙ MATERIAL: Made from 100% highest quality stretch poplin.
⊙ FIT AND DETAIL: The Mara&Meru™ Great White Shirt is a classic button-up shirt which is slightly fitted on the sides. Front and back darts and small, subtle side slits make for a great fit and contribute to the overall styling of the shirt.
⊙ SINGLE ROLL-UP SLEEVE TABS: The long sleeves with single-button cuffs of the Mara&Meru™ Great White Shirt can be rolled up and secured by the subtle single button and loop sleeve tabs!
⊙ 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™ Great White Shirt on arrival at your hotel or lodge.
