Checked shirts are awesome and consistently stylish no matter what the current fashion trend might be. When a thick flannel shirt is too much for the weather, choose this lightweight option instead. Oh, we picked 100% wool as the material and added Canadian-style bar buttons and gusseted pits as the final touches.
In the modern days, many garments have become cheap (or not even that cheap) look-alikes of the real thing that used to be made of proper materials. Here's a shot at fixing the problem with a shirt you might choose to wear on special occasions, but if you get accustomed to the higher standard, you'll wear it every day to whatever you do.
- A lightweight button-down shirt with check squares
- Fabric: 100% wool
- The whole shirt weighs just 285 g / 10.1 oz (Size Medium)
- Made in Lithuania, EU
The cut is classic and the shirt has simple chest pockets with flaps, a stand-up collar, and adjustable sleeve cuffs. In essence, a timeless design fit for work, outdoors, and pleasure, and if you get wet in the rain, this will still keep you warmer than a cotton shirt. We added gussets to the pits to improve mobility without adding any bagginess.
Material and care
The fabric is 100% wool, weighs 180 g/m2 / 5.3 oz, very densely woven with a wee bit of stretch. Wash at 30 degrees Celsius (86 F) with a wool cycle, and hang dry. Usually just brushing off dirt and airing the shirt out is enough. The use of wool care products is recommended but not mandatory.
This shirt retails fro 138.- euros
