    What is the name of the type of shirt Jacob wears on the series "Lost" (the white/cream one tied on the chest by a leather cord)?
    I think it is a great summer/beach outfit and want to buy one online, but I can't find any mostly because I don't know it's name.
    Does anyone knows it's name and where can I buy one?

    What part of "tied on the chest by a leather cord" you didn't get? I'm obviously talking about this one: [​IMG] And I'm looking for a 3/4 sleeved one.

    Are you going to be stranded on an island by any chance?
    Otherwise, seriously?

    I say go for it. You might have to get it made custom, though. Fabric looks like it might be undyed muslin or linen.

    Apart from the collar, how about this? Nice reference in tha name – I'll bet it was intentional.

    As far as I know it's called a 'tunic shirt', though Googling for this term returns lots of different variations. This looks like one of the most similar.

    @Kentishman yeah but I want something that doesnt look like a costume.

    @Sanguis Mortuum That one is pretty cool, but I think I found what I was looking for:

    Too bad it's out of stock on my size.
    It is called "Renaissance" shirt by the way.

    What do you guys think as a beach look?

    There's something ironic in that, especially as a costume is exactly what it is [​IMG]

    For the beach, stick to decent shorts and maybe a linen shirt.
