Up Close: Hunting Shirt.
At 3sixteen, we are relentlessly focused on details - those tiny differences that we hope make our pieces into one of the first things you look for in your closet when you get ready to face the day. While we try to make our webshop as informative as possible, not everything we love about certain pieces can be translated to a simple description.
The very best solution would be for you to come to our flagship store or visit one of our retail partners to see, touch, ask questions about, and try on a piece you're interested in. As powerful and wonderful as the Internet is, we strongly believe there is no substitute for an in-person experience. This isn't feasible or convenient for everybody though, so every now and again we'll be taking some time out to talk more about pieces that we think you'd love if you saw them up close.
The first is our Hunting Shirt from this FW17 season. We love flannels, and always include them in our collections as the weather starts to turn towards winter. Our feeling is, when we do them, they should be special in some way, and as such we look through hundreds of fabrics to find just one that fits that bill. With these it's all about the herringbone, which is a coarser variation of the pattern, and also slightly broken. This creates a slightly jagged pattern that gives the shirt a distinctive textural look that looks almost like wool. We're very pro-wool (as our past collaborations with Tanner Goods and Pendleton have shown), but understand that it's not for everyone. We wish more people felt the way we do, because like a suede, it imparts a rich visual texture that gives your outfit an extra dimension without being over the top. So this is the best of both worlds: a brushed flannel with a next-to-skin feel that only cotton can give you, coupled with a little extra visual depth. We thought the outdoorsy woolen look of the fabric would pair well with our Hunting Shirt. We are really into the look of the cape pockets, and they come in handy in securing their contents from falling out. This shirt is available in both navy and grey flannel.
