I made this shirt for my husband. I modeled if after Jareth's shirt in "Labyrinth" because I thought he might use it for the Labyrinth of Jareth event. (http://www.labyrinthmasquerade.com) In the end he didn't wear it to the ball but a poet shirt is the first staple in any man's costume wardrobe. He had already used it for several other events by the time the Ball passed. It is made from a hefty rayon twill so it hangs very well and is machine washable.
