Fabric note: Please note this shirt is identical in quality to our original Qaddafi top, the difference is the fabric is imported from Dubai and is much more expensive in price, and has the unique finish seen in the photo. The fabric is however, not higher or lower quality, it is not linen and not as hard wearing.

Did You know: Gaddafi was responsible for the putting US$300 million on the table; the African Development Bank added US$50 million more and the West African Development Bank a further US$27 million - and that's how Africa got its first communications satellite. Cutting Europe out of profiting from dominating telecommunications in Africa. Gaddafi was also a champion of African attire, and boldly wore African clothes everywhere, sometimes wearing 4 different outfits to one meeting, promoting African clothing on a global platform while other African leaders promoted Italian clothes.

Most African clothing is worn loose. So a person who is large may choose an extra-large for a more flowing fit. Some sizes take longer and our expected transit time attempts to accommodate for all possible delays.
