  • Q & A
Though the Jokapoika became the first piece of Marimekko menswear in 1956, women soon started wearing them too. After all, the shirt had a crisp feel, timeless shape, and the stylish stripes of Vuokko Eskolin-Nurmesniemi's Piccolo pattern; a staple anyone would want in their wardrobe. Now, the Marimekko Leidi (Lady) Black/White Shirt offers the same classic look of the Jokapoika but tapered to fit a woman's silhouette. The not-too-perfect stripes of white and black are powerful yet naturally pleasing to the eyes, and metal buttons and side darting are added fine details to this flattering shirt. Wear with pants, shorts, or tuck into a skirt for a polished look; however you wear the Leidi, this refined version of a celebrated classic will never go out of style.

I have coveted this, and jokapoika shirts generally, for years. When it went on sale, I took the plunge and have never been sorry. It washes and irons like a dream and always looks good.
