There was a 65° day and also a 38° day this week, and while that’s not on any sort of Mercury ish, it’s not easy to dress for. Do I wear Heat Tech? What if the train is hot? Do I bring half my closet along in my backpack, stretching every seam to its existential limit, along with the patience of fellow commuters?
I can’t be sure (that would require investigation), but I assume that The Real McCoy’s MC12110 Military Thermal answers most of those questions with the smiling cowboy hat face.
To be very clear, this is a thermal. A normal, 100% cotton, heavyweight, slim-fitting thermal with ribbed cuffs, built to get you through the coldest months of the year and probably some other times too. But also, this is The Real McCoy’s so it’s not really a normal thermal.
It was made in Japan to the same exacting specs that the rest of the wonderfully meticulous line is known for and was inspired by some of the most hard-wearing, well-loved garments of the 1900s, which means it was built to last for years, not just seasons.
And as an added bonus, it comes in the most timeless, wearable colorways around, so any of these could find a place in your Anytime But Summer rotation for the foreseeable future.
