First created in 2017, The Poet Shirt has been made in countless fabrics, sleeve and hem lengths and shapes, and collar styles. After three years of sampling, fitting on multiple body’s, and thinking, the photographed edition is remarkably similar to it’s original.

Originally named the O.S Shirt (Over Sized), sometimes just referred to as ‘The Shirt’ with friends, I finally landed on the ‘Poet’ while listening to Patti Smith read Just Kids as I sewed. It feels right to name it after her, I think it’s something she would like.
