When it comes to the overall utility, few garments can compare with the Russian naval striped shirts, called telnyashkas. Fitting snuggly around the body, telnyashkas are wonderful at keeping the torso warm even in freezing temperatures, which made them popular far outside the realm of sailors.
Slightly less utilitarian, yet much more historical and symbolic, all of our traditional-style shirts with intricate embroidery are permeated with ancient understandings and meanings. Every embroidered pattern goes back centuries, often having roots in the Slavic pre-Christian epoch, when everything that happened seemed to be riddled with wonder and magic.
So, whatever you choose, you can be certain that you are getting a tried and true classic that is both useful and stylish!
