Moleskin Field Shirt

Moleskin Field Shirt is Perfect in rough fields and cooler weather.

270 years! That’s how long this fabric has been in use by coal miners throughout the world;  and our mill has been in business weaving it, since 1777. 

The coal miners's gospel says, “Put a cotton moleskin shirt on in the morn, head for a grueling day below the earth’s surface and this cloth is the only protection between you and your skin.” Taking the shirt off as you walk through the kitchen door, holding the door open with one hand, while giving the shirt to your wife who has the waiting soap and hot water bath ready for both shirt and miner.

This is cotton moleskin pedigree and why we selected it for a new addition of our functional Field Shirt – adding features the miners never dreamed of.

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.

Fabric: 100% cotton moleskin fabric represents endurance and tradition of the rugged lifestyle for which it was created. First developed in medieval Europe, this cloth offered warmth, protection, and comfort in varied conditions. Moleskin has a soft, brushed finish that is remarkably resistant to wind – and while the feel is quite luxurious, the pile actually protects the surface from abrasion and wear. This texture resembles suede or the downy coat of the mole – its namesake.

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


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.
