Review - Swrve Cordura Combat Wool Button-Up Casual Shirt
I rarely wear office shirts these days, but casual shirts are something I still definitely appreciate. The Swrve CORDURA® Combat Wool Button-Up Shirt is a luxurious and smart, yet incredibly practical piece of smart-casual wear, which looks at home both on and off the bike.

The Swrve Combat Wool shirts are part of the brand's Capsule collection "designed to do anything, anywhere, anytime" — which means that they should be as capable on an outdoor expedition as they are in the urban environment. That is a tough demand, but the brand seems to have delivered it through fabric choices and subtle design features...

The Combat Wool shirt is made from CORDURA® combat wool™. This fabric blend claims to be ten times more abrasion resistant, have two times better tensile strength, and also have significantly better tear resistance (it is a ripstop fabric) than a pure Merino wool. It delivers this though, while still retaining the sought-after characteristics of wool; such as the soft feel, superb temperature regulation, and the ability to provide insulation even when wet.

The fabric means that this shirt is practical both for work and outdoor play. It also has subtle design features to aid this pursuit — like the double back pleated yolk and gusseted side panels to provide ease of movement.

With a trim fit, practical pockets, and durable buttons to finish off the look, this is a well thought out and well-designed piece of everyday apparel. I have used it for everything from pub walks to hotel lunches, as well as bike rides of course. It looks smart, washes very well, and feels great against the skin. Another winner from the Swrve brand (see previous reviews here).
