My closet is full of shirts. Most of them have hung there for years. The few that I wear most often earn that right by being comfortable both in fit and feel with an endurable style.
Two new shirts by Flylow have found their way into my repertoire, and they are passing the test.
The Handlebar Tech Flannel is at home in the mountains of Montana. Combining the wicking properties of a baselayer with the classic flannel look, the Handlebar will let you look good and feel comfortable whether you’re hiking the “M” trail in Bozeman or roasting s’mores by the campfire.
Complementing the Handlebar’s versatility is my other new go-to shirt: Flylow’s Anderson SS. On hot summer days, this short-sleeved looks great at work and will allow you to get out on a quick bike ride during your lunch break.
The highlight of this shirt is that it’s made with antimicrobial bamboo and wicking polyester, so you won’t need to take a shower after your ride. As Flylow says on its website, the Anderson SS is “stink- and guilt-free.”
From distinctive coloring to stylish stitching, snaps and buttons, Flylow seems to have a knack for making casual look sharp.
Perhaps best of all, their durable quality means I’ll be pulling them both from my closet for years to come. A favorite shirt is hard to find. Fortunately, through quality materials, slick design, and a comfortable feel, Flylow has figured it out. Twice.
