After Selling Out in Record Time, Criquet's Nelson Stripes are Back

Made with super soft 100% cotton, removable collar stays for an always crisp collar, and a style that’s perfect for the 19th hole, it’s no wonder Criquet’s Nelson Strip Players Shirt sold out in record time this past spring. Lucky for you, the shirt inspired by well-worn hand-me-downs from dad is now back in stock.
