Travel Dad has reared his Panama-hatted head again this winter season with a raw denim shirt that combines a workshirt with an apron for maximum pockets and protection. Now, Travel Dad is above a smeared “Kiss the Cook” style apron. All of his purchases have to be multipurpose, so when he breaks out the hibachi he picked up in Kobe in 1982, he reaches for Sassafras’s Botanical Scout Apron Shirt.
The shirt is your typical denim workshirt – 7.5oz. raw denim, white contrast stitching, pleated flap chest pockets, and like the hypothetical hibachi, the Scout shirt is made in Japan. Where it ventures out of the ordinary and into Travel Dad country is in some massive patch pockets along the hem, which look sizable enough to fit a passport, a Power Bar, and a book full of medium-difficulty sudokus.
