Welp, it’s time to cover our arms again. That’s right, long shirt weather is upon us and those open-collared button-downs are being neatly folded away until next spring. But, with so many options to choose from, getting a read on essential wardrobe staples vs. distractions can be difficult. Luckily Shockoe Atelier helps you cut through the noise with a tried and true 9 oz Ripstop Field Shirt in the dreamiest drab.
Modeled after classic military uniform shirt-jackets prevalent throughout the Vietnam War, Shockoe’s keeping things high and tight. A shorter design and slimmer cut give a modern look while that perfect shade of olive subtly steals the show – not to mention perfectly compliments your chinos, jeans, or dare we say cords? Featuring chest pockets with flapped snap closure, leather-backed buttons and rivets, and of course tobacco leaf-stamped hardware in copper with black finish, the USA-made shirt is exactly what it needs to be and nothing more. Just how we like things ’round here.
And thanks to the durable ripstop composition, you’ll be able to appreciate its simplicity for years to come. Welcome to the autumn of the drab field shirt.
Available for $225 from Shockoe Atelier
