Available in a plethora of colors and made with durability, style and toughness in mind — the Explorer’s Shirt from Huckberry and Taylor Stitch.
Although we’re eagerly looking toward spring here at The Style Guide
, we aren’t quite there yet — and that’s why you’ll need the Huckberry Explorer’s Shirt
these next few weeks. While it’s tempting to stow away your tough winter accessories in favor of lighter fare, transitional spring style still calls for gear that’s a little heartier than normal. There’s certainly a chance of rain, and heck …. a few snow flurries? Sorry, folks … had to go there. With that being said, the Huckberry Explorer’s Shirt
has a lot of great things going for it — namely, it’s made in tandem by Huckberry
and a near-weekly Style Guide favorite, Taylor Stitch
. That the two companies share office space is fitting, because they both do an admirable job carrying the flag for high-quality, rugged and timeless #menswear. And as you’ve seen from this site’s Style Pick of the Week series, there’s a lot that Taylor Stitch
does well — including stellar shirting options like the Crater Shirt. In this instance, the Explorer’s Shirt
kicks things up a notch, starting with the durable and tough stone-washed duck canvas exterior — that makes it one of the best men’s overshirts you can buy, and simultaneously, one of the best men’s workshirts to buy, too. Ya dig? Of course, with all great gear from Taylor Stitch
, there are plenty of extra touches that make it worth buying (especially in the versatile and unique Natural colorway seen here). Keep in mind that the Explorer’s Shirt
is also available in a plethora of colors, from a handsome Rust Gold
to a faded Dusty Blue. Regardless of shirt color, you get tremendous quality any way you slice it.
Tough brass buttons, a clean fit and sturdy fabric make this shirt a winner.
Heck, even the buttons on the Explorer’s Shirt
are sturdy — made with brass, they’re a vintage-inspired touch that lends this piece more of a shirt-jacket feel than something like a classic chambray shirt
. In that case, you could absolutely layer the Huckberry Explorer’s Shirt
with just about any combo you can dream up, be it over a timeless Oxford shirt
or your favorite long-sleeve henley
(particularly a henley — talk about a one-two combo ideal for weekend style). And because both brands build their gear with paramount functionality in mind, the Huckberry Explorer’s Shirt
features an inner chest pocket with a neat, screen-printed map design and enough space for your everyday carry. Heck, Huckberry
even notes that you can treat the shirt with Otterwax to make it weatherproof — learn more here
. When you can get a shirt that doubles as a jacket, fights off the rain, layers up easily and stands out stylishly with everything from slim dark denim to classic chinos, you should absolutely buy it. From there, wear the Explorer’s Shirt plenty — ideally with other Taylor Stitch
