Hot and humid is managed with the Essplanade Shirt, whether on the bike, traveling to work, or exploring a new city. This classic design is capable of high performance (fast drying, wicking, no-stink) but doesn’t brag on it. If anything, this is a stealth shirt that excels in a wide range of challenging environments. And it’s made just for your size and color, by artisans in Old Fort, North Carolina.
More choices, premium quality gear and the commitment of less waste, sounds pretty great, right? The trade-off is that it takes longer for us to make, but you get exactly what you want, and we never make apparel that isn’t wanted.

SIZE GUIDE - ESSPLANADE SHIRT
NOTE: Measurements provided are garment measurements.
Pro Tip: The Essplanade is a roomier fit than our Signature Fit Icon Shirt, and is more similar to our Relaxed Athletic Fit Icon Shirt. If you prefer a closer fit in the torso, or you fall between sizes, we recommend sizing down with the Essplanade.

Favorite summer shirt
This is a great shirt that fits well, is cool but not clammy, and shifts easily between exercise and civilization. My only complaint is that it is out of stock in the other color I want to get too!
Works great to ride in and to work in (I'm a teacher). I really like that it is both a performance piece of clothing while also being good looking off the bike too!
