Won't Last For Long
The Marrakech Shirt is a lightly woven summer shirt. The fabric is thin and not bulky like some other woven or knit shirts may be. The colors are true to the photograph. Buttons are unique and securely attached. The drape is very comfortable. This is a shirt that, if you wait until early summer, you won't be able to order one because they will be out of stock. There are other TA shirts that I wish I jumped on when they first became available; this is one of those.
Now this is a quality TA item
Okay, this is a fine piece of garment, worthy of TA. The pattern and color are definitive, and the material is convincingly nice. One of those rare purchases when I knew, as soon as I saw it, that I needed to give it a look. THIS is the kind of thing that drew me to the Territory Ahead in the first place, and it's good to see such an item again.
wonderfully textured and colored shirt..
I get compliments on this every time I wear it- it wears well, drapes well, washes up pretty wrinkle free, overall a very fine shirt that I enjoy wearing.
Details make this shirt
Very fun shirt and well-constructed shirt. The texture and pattern in the fabric are great. Looks great with jeans or khakis. Colors are true to the pictures on the site and the button details are very cool. It is 100% cotton, so be careful how you wash and dry it - the relaxed weave is great, but subject to shrink if you're not careful.
Gift for Husband
I purchased this shirt, along with one other, for my husband. I bought the 2 shirts for a special occasion, hoping at least one of them would fit and thinking that I would send the other back. I ended up keeping both of them and I kept this one because I loved the fabric. The colors are a gorgeous, multi-color, woven mixture of mainly rust, brown and beige with small stripes of other colors thrown in. The fabric also has a nice soft feel and weight to it.
Nice spring and fall shirt
Beautiful colors. Nice soft fabric. Well made and sizes correctly. Fits well not tocked in. A bit heavy for warm environments or the middle of summer. But overall a very nice shirt
What a comfortable shirt! Just wore it out for a night on the town...received several great comments on it! Good quality, cool look and feel to it. It makes me feel like heading out on a road trip just so I can wear my shirt some more!
Midweight and durable, this is going to be one of my favorite shirts this summer. Love the colors and the drape. Only quick iron needed. Great purchase.

A Shirt with Great texture and color
If your looking for a casual shirt that is really rich in color then this is the one for you. Great with lighter colored slacks or shorts but can work well with darker colors. Runs a little on the ""bigger side"" of sizing.
Another Nice Purchase
I was very happy with this shirt. It was a little heavier than I thought it would be but it breathes real well. I love it.
Another Great TA Shirt
I was trying to control my shirt habit when TA hit me with a 15% off/free shipping combo... oh well. Great shirt, received many compliments. It's a heavier weave, so probably won't be my pick for 90+ degree days, and the weave is on the coarse side - snagging could be a problem. Just don't wear it berry picking....
Fabric is heavier than anticipated
Fabric is heavier and the color seems darker and more intense than I expected. A little heavy weight for a summer shirt. Good quality material and construction, though.
Buttoned up quality
The buttons on this shirt are unique. That's the first thing I noticed about the shirt. The Tibetian power symbols on the buttons are found on only a handful of Territory's shirts. An added bonus is the fact that the bottom button hole is horizontal rather than verticle making it less likely to come un-buttoned due to sitting and standing. The shirt has very vivid colors and the material is a heavier than usual weight. It drapes nicely and can be worn after drying without ironing. Even though it is a heavier shirt it breathes due to the loose weave.
Online Catalog vs. In Person
Thought I would take this opportunity to convey my thoughts on what you see in the online catalog vs. what you see in person. When seeing the Marrakech Shirt online I really liked the look of this shirt and thought it would look great on me I always liked the quality and variety of shirts that TTA provides. I'm 6' 5"" tall and don't care for the CHEESY shirts that some of the Big & Tall stores carry; that's why TTA gets my vote when it comes to my clothes. Well when the shirt arrived, I looked at it, and to say the least, I was very disappointed. But told myself that I should at least wear it before thinking about exchanging it. So I did, and found that I DO like it! But that's where my beef comes in, this shirt looks totally different than my impression of how it looks on the online catalog. I don't know why but on certain shirts on the online catalog the shirts are sometimes enhanced by the photos (not intentionally mind you) but just through the photographic process. I can see this as a good thing and a bad thing from the company stand point. If you buy the shirt because you liked the way it looked online that's a sale, for those of us who think it was a misrepresentation of what we were getting, we either grow to like the shirt or totally dislike the shirt all together and return it. The neat thing is, that The Territory Ahead stands behind their products and if you think that the shirt was misrepresented or it did not fit or does not meet your standards, you know what, you CAN return it no questions asked. Something I would like to see TTA do in the future for their website is to be able to view a larger picture of the shirt that you are interested in, than you currently can with their current viewing options. Also some different settings for the photo shoot like outdoor vs. indoor so we can see how the light strikes the shirts in different settings. Last point I would like to make is when they show some shirts of different colors or patterns that are stacked on top of each other in a photograph I have a hard time getting any kind of feel on how I like the shirt in a different color or pattern when I can't see the shirt represented in the same manner as the one that is used as the main photographic example. I wish of course, that I could have a TTA store in my own town then I could see what I was buying. But, such is the online shopping experience! Sorry for my rant just wanted to give my opinion. Thanks a TTA fan!
Purchased this shirt in Santa Barbara store so I was actually able to confirm fit. I have about 10 TA shirts all have been med. size. Have worn this shirt twice and had it professioally cleaned. Confirmed with cleaner that washing instructions were followed. You might want to consider sizing up if you purchase this shirt.. I love the softness of the material but it will shrink more that any TA shirt I own.
Nice shirt - but order larger
It's a great shirt. The colors are well done, and the fabric is comfortable and soft. I have always bought size Large from Territory Ahead, and this shirt fit as expected on arrival. After washing and hang dry, it shrank a lot - too small to wear... (and TA doesn't take returns after wearing then washing). So buy it, but select a size bigger than you usually select from TA.
