Rugged yet stylish. Isn’t that what every man’s man wants to be? Toeing that line between rogue and gentleman effortlessly, winning over peers and the fairer sex alike without fuss? Well, guess what, now there’s a garment that matches that aspiration.

The American-made 1620 Stretch NYCO Work Shirt ($128) is just about as rugged as it gets, boasting such features as reinforced elbows, gusseted ease-of-movement armpits, a DWR coating, angled front chest pockets for ease of entry and a no-flip motorcycle button-down collar.


It’s as tough and durable as they come, but the one-of-a-kind Stretch NYCO fabric still gives to move with you, whether you’re spot welding, chopping wood, operating a fork lift or, let’s face it, mastering the 12-ounce curl.

Oh and, on the stylish side, you can see that although it’s technically a work shirt, it’s refined enough to wear anywhere and keep you looking sharp. It’s available in two shades, Meteorite and Dermitasse Brown, and we particularly dig the angles of the pockets and cuffs, which lend a progressive feel to a pretty classic garment.

Because hey, we gentleman rogues still wanna look good when we’re kicking ass, right?
