Ladies and gentleman, ’tis the season … to upgrade your rugged shirting game. That’s what the United By Blue Holt Work Shirt is going to do for you (or for the lucky fella who receives this stylish winter shirt under the tree in the weeks ahead). Yes indeed, it’s never too early to think about gifting for the outdoorsman in your life, and it’s certainly never too early to think about buying yourself a little extra Christmas present this season — what do ya say? For my money, the Holt Work Shirt is another standout addition to the United By Blue lineup, and a standout addition to our Style Pick of the Week series here on the blog. United By Blue is definitely a brand we appreciate here at The Style Guide for committing to sustainability and style in equal parts (Editor’s note: Check out my United By Blue Q+A for more). That they manage to commit to the environment while running some cool retail shops — as I found in a Labor Day trip to Asbury Park — and consistently come through with cool product like the Holt Work Shirt is a treat in and of itself, too. Oh, and as to the specs and style points of the aforementioned Holt Work Shirt? It’s up there with the best men’s shirts to buy right now, I’d say.
For starters, the Holt Work Shirt features an organic cotton-recycled polyester blend, two eco-conscious fabrics that result in a tough, versatile flannel shirt. The United By Blue Holt Work Shirt even features a touch of stretch — all the better to layer up over your favorite henley this winter season. The Holt Work Shirt has the look of an overshirt and the durability to go along with it. Plus, you’ll find space for your everyday carry thanks to two front button chest pockets on the Holt Work Shirt, complete with a useful side zip compartment at the left chest pocket. In addition to that helpful functionality, you get your pick between two versatile colorways — Rust and Olive ought to work with plenty of other winter style essentials in your rotation, from an oatmeal thermal crewneck and slim black denim to tan leather boots, dark blue denim and a classic chambray shirt (yes, I’m recommending you layer the United By Blue Holt Work Shirt … atop another shirt). That’s the beauty of a dependable, well-made and weather-friendly work shirt — you an use it to do actual, rough-and-tumble work, or you can wear it as a statement piece underneath a classic shawl collar cardigan to grab a pint at your favorite brewpub. Where you wear the United By Blue Holt Work Shirt is up to you — choices abound. If I were you, I’d keep it simple and make that first choice — adding the Holt Work Shirt to your cart.
That’s all I’ve got today, folks — enjoy the weekend!
