The fire attracts the sweetfish and enables the birds to see the fish. The throats of the birds are constructed by the fishermen enabling the fishermen to easily take the fish from the birds. This shirt has a perfectly matched left chest pocket, bamboo buttons, neckloop and horizontal button holes. Size marked LARGE, measures in inches - Shoulders 19, Chest 24, Length 31 and Sleeves 10. Excellent condition - two pinholes - the largest one is pictured - see detail photo.
