Details

  • Material. The Jack Shirt is made with 95% wool (mix of virgin and recycled wool) and 5% cashmere. The material is brushed to give it a soft fleece texture. In other words, this is a shirt jacket that will keep you warm when wet, won't smell and is made with natural materials. The wool comes from Australia and is mulesing-free. The reinforcement is made with polyester to protect the most exposed areas, and is easy to switch out if necessary.
  • Fit. The Jack Shirt is designed with the cut of a jacket, and has a loose, casual fit.
  • Pockets. There are large chest pockets with buttons in front and large side pockets with zippers. On the top of the left chest pocket you have a hidden pocket to hang glasses on. On the inside of the chest is a zipper pocket for important items like a phone or map.
  • Buttons. We have chosen sturdy buttons in a similar color as the material, and that won't break after a short time. There is an extra button on the inside of the jacket if one should disappear. We have also added an extra button above the cuff after feedback from testers, giving you the opportunity to make the opening above the cuff smaller and close out cold air.

Background
When we first started playing around with the idea of making a midlayer, we had a plethora of styles and functions to choose between. With our design philosophy in mind, we wanted to develop a garment that was both functional and looked good in the mountains or the city, and that could be work all year 'round.

Like our other products, you can go straight from a hike to dinner with your in-laws. Thanks to the wool you won't smell, and thanks to the design you are ready for any occasion.

Use it as a shirt, mid-layer or a jacket.

Sizing
This product is unisex, and the sizes are shown in men's sizes. We advise women to size down from their usual size.

Lifetime service
All our garments come with lifetime service. That means that we help you take care of you garments and use them for as long as possible. We do this in four steps:

  • Care. For the lifetime service to work, you need to take very good care of your clothes. We help you do this with our care guide, that is continuously being updated and improved. Feel free to read through it when you buy one of our products, and use it actively throughout the garment's life. Here you can find washing tips, how to remove stains, instructions for coating the product and more.
  • Repairs. If you get a hole in the garment it is usually easy to fix at home. We teach you how with our instruction videos here, and send you everything you need to do so.
  • More repairs. If the damage is too comprehensive to fix yourself, you can send the garment to us. We will do what we can to repair it and prolong its life.
  • Recycle. When the garment is completely worn out, the best thing you can do is to give it a new life. Return it to us and we will make sure that it is recycled or used to save and repair other garments.

The process
Pictured is the first prototype we received in fall of 2020. Since then, we have designed and developed the Jack Shirt with our Community. Five prototypes and one test round later, we have finally landed a good design. The final product is based on internal ideas and competence, in addition to feedback from testers and the Community. The most significant changes are based on the following feedback:

1. No button-down collar. Mattis, Niclas and 5 others wanted us to remove the buttons form the collar.

2. Smaller buttons. Wenche, Jostein and 10 other Community members wanted smaller buttons.

3. Extra pocket. 5 people, like Jo, thought is was a good idea to implement a zipper pocket on the inside of the jacket.

4. Color. 7 people asked us to make a version in grey melange.

5. Contrasts. Knut Oscar, Iselin and 4 others asked for less of a color contrast on the reinforcement, while Mathias and 6 others wanted less contrast on the buttons.

Bonus: Name. Inspired by the contribution from Community member Tamara, Jack Shirt is the perfect combination of jacket and shirt (and jack shit 😉).
