Supreme Utility with Black Denim
So, I bikepack a lot but also work as a trail-builder, timber feller and run my own business. I wondered where a Denim shirt would fit into this lifestyle, especially one this nice - but this shirt is a piece of art. I have another Icon in wool and use numerous types of kit throughout my daily life. I doubt a shirt in this price range will end up seeing days running saws or machines but I see it as a daily wear outside of the woods and a functional utilitarian piece I can dress up or down when needed. Given that its Denim - there are barely an insulating properties so my pitch-ridden wool Icon will still bear the brunt of field work responsibilities. However if I can hit my target goal of solely just two collared shirts in my closet - there is no reason one should not be this denim shirt. The fit is excellent - I wish I could've found one in large - however I settled on a medium when these came back in stock and it just baaaarely fits. So time on the saddle is going to be crucial to keeping this piece in the daily wear cycle however I do hope it stretches out a bit. The fabric is top notch, rugged and extremely handsome. The details of shoulder patches and elbow patches elevates the entire presentation of the shirt and the performance details work perfectly. To be honest, I primarily purchased the shirt to support Kitsbow and everything the company is attempting to pull off. As a craftsman myself, I've accepted responsibility for paying premium prices for products that actually give those who make them a chance at living life with a living wage + healthcare. This is extremely important to me. A shirt like this can last a lifetime and, ideally, will steer more people away from fast fashion and into smaller wardrobes, that undoubtedly are more expensive; but ultimately create far less waste. Can Kitsbow tackle the whole issue of fast fashion on their own? Hardly, but at Kitsbow I know my purchase supports a challenge to the current modality of fashion waste seen throughout the world. Its ok to pay a lot of money for one well-made thing, to use the item and to cherish it throughout ones life.
Rugged and elegant
This shirt fits just as beautifully as my wool Icon but with a rugged elegance that is entirely different. The black denim has just enough stretch - allowing the waist and shoulders to fit close and feminine while still provide absolutely comfortable movement. The denim gives it a nod to All-American nostalgia while the fit is entirely modern / tailored. I'm going to wear this to and from riding in cooler weather and definitely dress this UP for everything else!
My new go-to shirt
The weather was 55 degrees and overcast, quite a contrast between when I got it in the mail. I wore my Cyclone t-shirt underneath and I was happy to have this shirt to wear over it. It isn't nearly as hot as I thought and the inside feels soft and totally wearable. This denim is burly and it has a feel like my old Levi's v-front jacket, only thinner and less stiff. I wore that thing for many years until it was out of style. The new denim Icon will be the perfect accessory for me and my endeavors on the bike, shooting photography, and hanging out by the fire. All things considered, the only drawback I can come up with is the break in period. I think it may be longer than expected but once it's "in" it's really in! I'm still breaking mine in, but so far I think this will be my go-to shirt for cooler days on and off the saddle.
