Mohnton Knitting Mills has been knitting and sewing up quality cotton sportswear for over 100 years under the guidance of six generations of ownership. Their R.P. Miller shirts—100% cotton with vertical ribbing and no side seam—seem at first like vintage American deadstock. Or perhaps Venetian gondoliers shirts? French Navy? One thing is certain—they’re big in Japan.
This version has a crew neck, full-length sleeves and looks great on both the fellas and the ladies. The sizes run fairly snug and true at first, but please note that they shrink up quite a bit in the wash. For example, Sambo here is wearing a brand new Extra-Large that will shrink up in the length of the body and arms should he ever decide to take it off long enough to launder it. So unless you prefer to hang your laundry out to dry on a line, we highly suggest ordering a size up from your usual.
