The MacArthur Mill Wool Shirt
When you call something, “the real deal,” much is understood. Nods commence. Mumbled agreement is overheard. Tedious analysis is unnecessary because we know brilliance when we see it. Examples include the left-handed stretch with the rising heater or the 1927 Model X Duesenberg. This wool shirt from the Peter MacArthur Mill & Company in Scotland is no different. Consider the facts…
a.) 265-gram lightweight wool from the historic MacArthur Mill; retains all the warmth and weather- wicking characteristics of heavier wools but is incredibly fine (any finer and it would be merino).
b.) Yarn-dyed so the color will last far longer than the phenom’s left arm and most likely for as long as you own this shirt, barring you don’t leave it on the fencepost in perpetuity.
c.) The burnt orange and olive hues fade in and out of one another with elegant ease, creating a subtle pop of earthy impressionism that announces your presence but does not do the talking for you.
But of course you knew all this.
