I'm headed to the beach next weekend. I have a spiffy
for sun protection. I would love to find a red and white striped t-shirt to complete the Victorian/Edwardian-ish seaside look, but I am having a heck of a time finding one.
There are plenty of other
striped color combinations out there and stripes with faded, washed out reds, but very few bright red/stark white options. Think "Where's Waldo?" - that's what I'm looking for. I'm not trying to be meticulously historically accurate, just trying to capture a gestalt.
This US Polo Association shirt
is basically exactly
what I'm looking for, except for the big ugly embroidered logo.
There is this shirt
from Young Spirit Shop, but it ships straight from Thailand and I can't count on it getting to the U.S. in time.
Of course I could go all-out and order the whole ensemble
from Gentleman's Emporium, but I'd prefer not to spend $48 + shipping on something I'm only going to wear a few days a year. If I can find something for around $20 shipped I'll be happy.
I've poked around all of the major mall chain store web sites I can think of, and this shirt
from The Gap is the best I've come up with so far... so I'm using an Ask MeFi question on this ridiculous pursuit on the off chance someone has a source I've missed.
So, my question in a nutshell: Does anyone know where to find a t-shirt with bright red and white stripes, without logos, that I can get delivered to my door in a week for about $20?
(Not looking for: "Leave the boater at home, you'll look like a pretentious hipster cosplaying prat" advice. I know I'll look like a prat, thanks.)
