Style Pick of the Week: Filson Kitsap Work Shirt

Filson Kitsap Work Shirt

The durable overshirt you need for plenty of spring layering.

If you’re in need of, let’s say, the perfect work shirt for spring, or quite literally one of the best men’s overshirts for spring and well beyond, then today is your lucky day. That’s because the Filson Kitsap Work Shirt checks all the proper boxes that you need, and then some. It’s exactly what you’d expect in a rugged workshirt from Filson, and that says a lot coming from a heritage outfitter with more than a century of making the best menswear on the market. Did I mention it’s also new for this season? Because it is, and it’s highly covetable. Mark my words, any time you get the chance to check out the best new men’s gear at Filson, you should assuredly take that chance, and quickly, at that. It’s not the first time you’ve seen it mentioned on the blog (check it out in a previous Friday Read), and it won’t be the last.

Consider it the answer to your search for a durable workshirt you can wear to take on any spring excursions or spring cleaning, and that’s an understatement. It all comes down to the tough-yet-lightweight fabric blend, for starters. The Filson Kitsap Work Shirt is made with a breathable pre-washed cotton that should function nicely as a top layer over a thermal shirt or your favorite Filson T-shirt, but you should also be able to throw it on as a standalone spring shirt, too.

Filson men's shirts

Your new go-to spring shirt, no questions asked.

It’s exactly the kind of versatility and quality that Filson has perfected over the years, with the toughness to stand up to early morning projects in the yard and the style to take on leisurely weekend afternoon strolls in equal measure. Plus, it doesn’t hurt that the Filson Kitsap Work Shirt comes in two cool color options (my favorite is the Dark Charcoal Jasper), so you can pair it with, say, Filson indigo denim for all-day style. The two front flap pockets on this stylish overshirt provide critical room for your everyday carry essentials, which you can also stock up on at Filson (but I bet you knew that already!).

The fact that the Filson Kitsap Work Shirt is made with pre-washed fabric is also crucial. That should limit break-in time, and it’ll feel breezy and comfortable right out of the box. To me, this shirt screams expert casual style for spring and summer days aplenty, no matter how often you wear it for, y’know, actual work. I’ll be wearing best men’s overshirts for spring around the borough for seasonal beers and park strolls, and I hope you’ve got the same ideas in mind. Cheers to the season, folks!
