Patagonia Cool Shade Shirt - Long Sleeve - Men's - 2011 BCS
If there's not a big tree or a wide porch in sight, you can still escape from the heat of the day when you slip on the Patagonia Men's Cool Shade Long-Sleeve Shirt. This lightweight fishing- and travel-specific shirt offers serious protection from the sun, while back vents allow cooling breezes to circulate and roll-up sleeve tabs give you additional ventilation options. Two zippered chest utility pockets that are sized to fit fly boxes or other essentials round out the technical details on the Cool Shade. When the sun goes down and the stars come out, it also serves perfectly well as a casual-dress shirt for dinner at the lodge.

The pictures don't show how "frilly" the shoulders and back look - the back seam of the shoulders is open with mesh underneath, and about 1/2 way down the back there's a very large flap with mesh under it. It looks really sharp from the front but the back looks "blouse-ey", for lack of a better term.
