Signature Field Shirt in Linen

**Linen Chambray Back in Stock – Now Available in SMALL **

Linen has long been regarded as the most comfortable fabric for hot climates, so much so that it was actually used as currency in ancient Egypt. What makes linen unique is its ability to absorb and wick away perspiration without feeling damp. And because it has a naturally stiff hand, it's much less likely to cling to skin, but billows away from your body to dry quickly and keep you cool. 

Burt Avedon started making safari shirts from linen after one of his old hunting pals from Africa called him many years ago to complain that his best-selling bush poplin shirts were "too damn hot" in the 130-degree summer heat. So, for today's African hunters, we've re-created our original bush poplin Signature Field Shirt in 100% linen – with all of the same performance and comfort features found in the original. Our 100% linen fabric is smooth to the touch, yet surprisingly tough and abrasion-resistant (and actually stronger wet than when it's dry). Offered in pewter green, classic khaki and new chambray blue.

Highly shrink-resistant, it tolerates hot water and gets more comfortable with every washing. The neutral colors look smart and blend into many landscapes without absorbing heat from the blazing sun. From it's high-performance design and features to its premium linen fabric, the Avedon & Colby linen Field Shirt is simply the finest hot-weather climate shirt you will ever wear.

Made in Hong Kong by our long-time sewing partner from back in the Willis & Geiger days.

SIGNATURE FEATURES: 

Comfort features include a generous, full-length bi-swing back that extends from the top of each shoulder to the waist to prevent pulling on the sleeves when reaching forward while accessing controls and switches. A unique, elasticized mesh panel inside the shirt reseats the bi-swing pleats to their original positions to maintain a trim, snag-free profile.

Our unique double-reversed underarm gussets allow for complete freedom of arm movement by preventing any pulling on the shirt’s sleeve when arms are raised or rotated to reach overhead controls. Each sleeve seam follows the arm-motion pivot points to reduce cuff “pull-back” and waist “pull-out” to allow arms to move freely while keeping the shirt tucked in.

PERFORMANCE DETAILS:

Sun Collar: A flip-up collar extension prevents sunburn on the back of the neck. Constructed with a military-style "zig-zag" stitch (a Signature Feature) to keep it rigid without adding additional thickness or weight, the sun collar stays up without curling or folding back on itself.

Throat Latch: A unique fold-back throat latch and concealed keeper button prevents wind from blowing down the wearer's neck on chilly days.

Hidden Button-Down Collar: Hidden buttons secure the shirt's collar tips to prevent them from flapping against the wearer's face and neck in high winds or when boarding a helicopter or bush plane.

Sleeve Roll Tabs (a Signature Feature): Extra-long sleeve roll tabs are hidden inside each sleeve to accommodate easy rolling up of shirtsleeves without binding.

Pocket Loop: A convenient pocket loop keeps sunglasses readily accessible.

Contoured Shirt Bottom: The gently contoured shirt bottom is shaped for comfort and style, whether tucked in or left out.

Horn & Urea Buttons: Stronger and more durable than traditional horn buttons, the Signature Field Shirt buttons are molded from ground horn powder and urea-methanol resin to withstand harsh washing on rocks (when on safari) or high-temperature commercial shirt presses back home. Raised button rims protect the thread from abrasion.

Dress Shirt Construction: All seams are single-needle stitched and surged to prevent any fraying of material.

Dress Shirt Front Placket: The seven-button front placket features a horizontal lower buttonhole, which counters the natural stress of the button so it won't pull out. The "turn up" design of the placket bottom (not a simple fold-over) is a hallmark of fine shirt making.

Care Instructions: To preserve color, machine wash cold with like colors. Do NOT bleach. Tumble dry low, remove promptly, cool iron if needed.

Note: The Pewter color linen shirt does not come with zippered chest drop-behind pockets.

Fit Details: Many of the shirt's performance features, like side panels and bi-swing help to provide fit comfort – the size measurements in the chart below reflect standard industry sizing. We have built into our Signature shirts "body ease" - so if you find you are between two sizes in the standard chart below, we recommend dropping down in size, not up. There is little to no shrinkage due to garment wash of the fabric as part of the finishing.
