The Real McCoy’s is reminding us that not all flannel shirts need to be plaid with its 8HU Horse Blanket Flannel Shirt. They’re also reminding us that fabric is fabric, and just because it was made for another purpose, you can slap it on a shirt and see what happens.
Seriously, these shirts were inspired by 1930s casual wear produced by local tailors who used surplus fabric. In this case, the extra fabric would have been used for horse blankets. Made in Japan to the highest standards, these heavy napped flannels feature twin chest pockets, urea buttons, and chain stitch runoff at the gussets.
Either worn as a laying piece or an overshirt, this button-up serves as an ideal, easy-going but unique staple thanks to its mellow palette and soft geometric pattern. It will surely become a second skin as nature turns down the thermostat.
