He did come back to me within days and absolutely loved my collection and was super happy to receive my thankful note. Sadly, he also mentioned that most of the shirts he had, including many from the 70s, were given to friends or "false friends" who knocked them off for profit, over all those years. He was nearly apologetic for this, which of course he doesn't have to be. I was just glad to hear of him. He later send me the only shirt he has left from Senegal, and a huge collection of newspaper articles, pictures and more of his time in Africa. Absolutely amazing stuff, really!
Just as a side note and to give you an idea of his affection for Africa: he and his wife still spend half the year in Senegal, which got his second home nation by now!
Thanks, Peter, I love the shirt a lot!
