No doubt we'll be looking at a lot of plaid shirts over the next few months but so far, this is one of my favourites. I'm sure everyone's familiar with the brand's history and Daiki's role in this project so I'll focus directly on the garment. In the same way as EG's 19th Century style, the Upland Button Down has become something of a staple for Woolrich Woolen Mills. It's a shirt that's full of character. The reinforced elbows, shoulder patch and bellow chest pocket all reflect a more functional influence. However, these features aren't overwhelming and the overall appearance is still very balanced. This is achieved by adding a series of more refined details. The cut, while not slim, has a considered shape, and the gussets and extra button on the back of the collar are always nice touches. Both colours work well but I particularly like the classic combination of red, white and blue. These shirts are currently available from Nepenthes but expect them to start appearing at other WWM stockists very soon.
