To be honest, dear reader, we’re not 100% sure how to describe the fabric of the Woodsman Pocket Shirt, which appears to be somewhere between marled and tweed, so we’re gonna go with “awesome.” Or, in the words of the maker, 18 Waits, it’s cream melange.
Naming rights aside, the 100% cotton fabric strikes a refreshing contrast to the fall/winter dark palette of earthy reds, browns, and greens, while not seeming like it’s ignorant of the season; the subtle texture and slightly warm hue gives the Woodsman a richness that’s well-suited to autumn outfits. Additional design details include a rounded collar and double rounded button flap chest pockets.
18 Waits then takes it up a few more notches with a made-in-Canada pedigree, a 3-piece back for a tailored, slim fit, and – hold the phone – there’s hidden on-seam side pockets. ‘Nuff said.
