Minus33 Merino Wool Company reported it is reentering the outerwear market “with an investment-grade take on a timeless traditional piece”—the White Mountain Woolen Sportsman Shirt—modeled after the plaid woolen jacket rural New Englanders have worn for generations.

Made from 80 percent wool and 20 percent recycled polyester, the White Mountain Woolen Sportsman Shirt is “both softer and more substantial than comparable guide shirts, making it a true shirt jacket (aka, shirt-jac or shacket), weighing nearly two pounds (34.4 oz) for a size large.”

“The wool sportsman shirt jacket is mandatory attire here in New England once the temps start to drop and leaves begin to change,” said Minus33 President Lawson Glidden. “And this one in particular is one of those special pieces that you’ll hand down to your grandkids. Its fine wool is over 6,000 years in the making, and the rest is done with the best modern manufacturing techniques—perfect for cold weather work, hunting and hanging out by the campfire.”

The White Mountain Woolen Sportsman Shirt is “generously sized” to accommodate cold-weather layering without restricting freedom of movement. Available in green plaid, red plaid and charcoal gray, it comes in unisex sizing, S-XXL.
