A few rolls of heavyweight wool were recently discovered in our manufacturer’s warehouse, leftover from a production run that was completed nearly three decades ago for a prominent outdoor goods brand. This naturally warmth-retaining, water-resistant and breathable fabric has been trusted for centuries, and we couldn’t pass on the opportunity to create something special with it. For FW19, we’re offering our Work Shirt silhouette in four color variations of 100% virgin Mackinaw wool. Raw copper YKK snaps reinforced by leather washers line the cuffs and placket, as well as a copper catseye top button—beautifully hand-forged by Phyre Forge. All seams are flat-felled, double-needle stitched and accented with chain stitch runoff detail on the sides. Stress points are braced with bar tacks, and a 10 oz waxed canvas lines the yoke and collar.
Hand wash in lukewarm water with a gentle wool detergent. Lay flat to dry. Do not hang dry, do not ring out. Wash sparingly. Wool is naturally stain and wrinkle-resistant.
