Spring is here, despite what the mountain town weather keeps throwing at us. Today is bluebird and the thermometer is dancing it’s way to the 50′s. With the need to get some new threads for spring and summer forays but the desire to have something I could tuck in for the impromptu meeting I checked out Cloudveil and found a couple of shirts that I’m not growing quite fond of.
The Cloudveil More Gripped Shirt has been around for a while now (as evidenced by it being on sale at most locations around the web) but it was the clean design and casual look that caught my eye. It stated that it was pre-shrunk so I opted for the XL which is my standard size and have been pleased with the results after a few washings.
Going on it fits pretty well in the shoulders even when imitating Tommy Boy and trying to stretch out your shoulders. But it’s not too baggy which is reason to shelf a shirt. It has a square bottom hem so if you’re rocking it untucked like I like to do most of the time it looks like it belongs, but just as well it’ll tuck in nicely for the lunch meeting.
I did need to toss an iron at it when wearing it for work but even still it came out of the dryer looking like it lost the wrestling match with my jeans. Could be the type of cotton they use or the fact that I’m washing jeans and a button up shirt in the same load.
Features of the Cloudveil More Gripped Shirt:
- Pre-shrunk and garmet washed
- Subtle western cues with a double yoke (the subtle Wyoming cowboy tag is a nice touch)
- Chest pocket with flap
- Interior felled seams
- Logo horn button exposed on front placket
- Relaxed fit
With a little cowboy and a whole lot of mountain town the Gripped Shirt from Cloudveil has quickly become my go to shirt.
