For four years I've been searching for a replica of the shirt worn by Brett. In that time I've learned a lot about not only that shirt but the style in general. I swear I see the distinctive layout of palm trees and sail boats in my dreams...
So when I stumbled onto this shirt I bought it without reservation. Like Propsummit member BR26354's very - close Brett shirt, mine is too busy compared to the screen used shirts (there were two of them). The pattern is the same, but these newer ones have less open space.
Mine matches the colors pretty well (if a bit too vibrantly), but more importantly it matches the paint style with the large smudges of paint in lieu of fine detail.

Anyone know a safe way to fade colors on a rayon shirt? Wink

Here's a really nice shot of the original for comparison. The outrigger on Brett's shirt to the left of the buttoned button is directly to the right of the bottom button on mine.

Beautiful find (Jamaica or Hawaii made?) Cool Rayon has a tendency to fade with difficulties (compared to say...cotton for example).
The best way to do so is to dry your shirt outside in full sun; that'll do it after a while. (btw, these pants are cool...but too pretty, if you see what I mean Wink )

That's a great match, remember spending hours looking at them and getting nowhere. Cool

I'll take a photo of the tag when I get home, hopefully others can track these down too.

Joberg, do you mean my trousers look too clean??

Very nice find man. A little bit more fitted on you than him though. Wink

It is a sad fact that I will *always* look more like Fletch than Brett...
