Our Backforty Longsleeve Shirt is truly born of an Icon. This is hardly an iteration of the Icon shirt, yet it shares many of the same features our customers have grown to love about it.
We used the same quality buttons, added ventilation across the back, tossed our signature stash pocket on the rear, and obsessed over designing the Backforty with the same tailored fit that many of our customers love.
The quality buttons make for easy snap adjustments, allowing for multiple combinations of ventilation. Using an engineered blend of fibers, this shirt maintains the comfort of cotton while allowing for the benefits of synthetics. The Backforty Longsleeve Shirt keeps the body cooler, drier and more comfortable than a shirt with all natural fibers.
With vintage-style plaid cues from our Pendleton ombre plaids, we're excited to present the Backforty Longsleeve Shirt for the months where you want a long sleeve, but still need some ventilation. The Backforty will help protect your skin against the elements, while maintaining comfort and style.
This shirt will be, without a doubt, my “go to” when the fall weather finally arrives in my world. In Alabama, I’ll be able to wear this as an outer garment much of our winter too. The styling, color and fit are right where each need to be. Nice job Kitsbow!!
Excellent shirt. Very comfortable is warmer weather, breaths well. Looks great as an office shirt, casual enough for dinner, tough enough for a good ride. Very pleased. Fit is normal compared to other Kitsbow shirts (6’ 200 lbs, large shirt). Not a bulky fit, but not restrictive at all.
Good to see that Kitsbow released a nice shirt for hotter weather! I picked up the Mineral Blue Oxford, which has a nice sharkskin sheen. While I generally stick to more casual short sleeve shirts when I can, I needed a new shirt for occasions that call for nicer attire and the Backforty will keep me cool, comfy and stylish. I love Kitsbow's lifestyle wear as much as the more technical gear, and this is another example of the clean lines and distinct styling that has rapidly made Kitsbow the dominant brand in my wardrobe. I'll look forward to picking up the Essplanade shirt next, as I'm loving the Cedar Oxford color!
I like the shirts. I like the way the icon series fits better, they have a little more give in the shoulders. I agree with the previous comments/ reviews. The pocket in the back is not so useful. The shoulders should be more like icon, free for the handlebar stretch! None the less I still like the shirt and materials. Should be noted that the latest edition, the solid blue one, of this line is a different material. It is a little heavier.
The Backforty longsleeve shirt brings the high Kitsbow quality we have come to expect. It looks good and feels good wearing all day. Be sure to order one size down from what you're used to!
