Bless's signature is top quality materials, full stop. Nevermind the design, the confidence you get from these pieces is in knowing the every care was put into the making of, shape of, fall of, and style of the thing. So this piece dog-whistles all the usual shirting formalities, but is big and open at the bottom and on the inner sleeves. It's airy enough for the hottest summer days, and light enough in textile to be worn underneath something if you like. If you're concerned about the poncho-qualities, just wear a layer underneath. Unisex.
