What the Seller Says: Vintage rayon or poly – can’t tell (? – tag is missing) shirt by Daniel Hechter Paris, shirt made in France. It has a few problems, see the little hole and spot, which are on the back.
What we Say: Male swimmers were once the only persons granted full immunity from the poor reputation of the tiny Speedo. Thank Neptune for the advent of the new swimsuits, now there’s absolutely no excuse for Speedo to continue producing the previous version. Sure, this shirt features a woman swimmer, but by today’s olympic swimwear standards, it could be a gal or a guy. A neat little fact that makes this shirt a pretty cool topic of conversation at your next bottomless pool party.
