In her first year at Marimekko in 1953, designer Vuokko Eskolin-Nurmesniemi created Piccolo, a striped fabric painted with freehand brushstrokes. Three years later, a Piccolo print shirt called Jokapoika became the first piece of Marimekko menswear to hit the stores and the streets.
The Jokapoika 2017 shirt is a unisex shirt. It is a loose fit shirt with a straight cut to the hip hemline with little side slits and a stitched-on chest pocket. Metal buttons secure the front closure and cuffs.
Every generation thinks this shirt is modern and new. The truth is, it's been around the block. Jokapoika has the honor of being the oldest Marimekko shirt that is still being produced. Some things just can’t go out of fashion. It's a classic Finnish farmer's shirt with silver buttons that come to life with vividly striped brushstrokes. Great for work, a night out, or wherever life takes you.
