Pricy But Amazing

Normally I wouldn't even make price an equation in clothing, but the reality is that it's quite expensive for a "shacket" you can only realistically wear during shoulder seasons.

The negatives are cost, usefulness and restrictive mobility (arms) - it sounds bad, but it's not in a relative sense.

Every single shirt/jacket of this style has these issues - no matter the manufacturer. This is not unique to Freenote and if you were to stack this up to any other jacket, here's the deal.

It's the best out there.

Glowing reviews are stupid. They aren't realistic. There's something you can nitpick about every item.

To me, it's just ends up being the price because I can't find a way to wear it every day and get value out of it like I can Freenote jeans.

If I could, I would wear it every day; it's that nice.

The color is awesome. You really have to see it in person to know what I'm talking about it. It has a very tumbled, worn-in, thousand-wash faded green look. It arrives already looking like your favorite shirt.

It's soft. (Level 2 butter soft); so soft you go "god damn, feel this. Seriously. Feel it"

It's warm enough. It's not a useful layer unless paired with another collared jacket and I don't know about you, but one restrictive piece of gear is enough. I don't care how cool it looks to layer with a waxed jacket. I'd like to be able to drive a car at the same time.

It's looks awesome on anyone. Or me, which is all I truly care about.

It feels very well made. Just like their jeans. The quality is not in doubt.

My advice. Buy it if you have $250 you don't mind never seeing again in exchange for something you can wear about 50 times per year, realistically, without people wondering if you own other articles of clothing.

Freenote utility Olive

I love this olive colour and the weight of the shirt is amazing. I’m 5’9”, ~190lbs and went for a large as I was going for more of an over shirt/hoodie layering style. It fits great for what I was going for, but if you’re looking for a more fitted style I’d say I personally could almost have went for a small as the sleeves and body length are quite long. I feel they’re ideally made for someone 6 foot and over based on proportions. Just mind the measurements when purchasing. I’m sure it won’t disappoint though as it is clearly a quality garment.

Freenote Utility Shirt Olive

The pictures do not do this shirt any justice. I was a bit hesitant to buying at first, but when I received I was super happy with the purchase. This is hands down a great shirt for the fall and spring. Heavy material, but its comfortably soft.

Freenote Core Piece

I own many pieces from FNC, it maybe comprises 40% of my wardrobe. But it wasn't until I got the utility shirt that I really began to understand Freenote's design philosophy.

This is a pretty simple shirt. It's roomy, but cut well so it's absolutely not slouchy. I would choose it for longer trips or excursions over slim fitting shirts because of the extra comfort and room.

It's tough but also very soft. The design has some really interesting details with the corzo buttons and those western influenced curved plackets, but these details are low key; at its core it's simple and functional, not attention grabbing, true to its workshirt origins. It's just a damn good shirt, that can be worn buttoned up, buttoned down, sleeves rolled up, sleeves buttoned all the way down, with or without an undershirt in weather ranging from chilly to warm.

It's a mid-weather staple with just the right amount of flair; something to throw on without having to worry about how you're wearing it, can be dressed up or down. I have the olive (it's like a light green sage color), and the OG charcoal one of the way.

One thing to be aware of: the sleeve cuffs are tapered a little bit tighter than other shirts I'm used to. The tapered sleeve cuffs are great, because it keeps the shirt sleeves fitting perfectly for a variety of arm lengths, whether you have your arms up or down. But if you have a chunky watch, it might be a little difficult to wear your watch and button sleeves at the same time, as the watch doesn't fit underneath the sleeve without a little work. Just something to be aware of, it may or may not affect you.

If you're new to FNC and want to pick up a piece that captures what the brand is about, I highly recommend the utility shirt. It will be a staple in your wardrobe for years.

My Favorite Shirt

This shirt fits like a glove, the color is beautiful and it feels like it will last generations. You can feel the quality as soon as you touch the shirt. I know this is going to be one of the most worn items in my wardrobe for years to come.
