Mariner Beanie

This beanie has a classic fit that fits all heads! It warm, durable, and itch-free. Most importantly, its made of 100% recycled polyester! Polyester repurposed for your beanie means less polyester floating in our oceans. If yellow isn’t your color, it also comes in light brown and brick red.

River Denim Work Shirt
United By Blue

The Denim Work Shirt is made of a hemp/organic cotton blend that is strong and durable but still fits very comfortably. Ideal for rugged dressed man. The buttons are also sustainably produced. They are made of Corzo or nuts from Central America. This shirt pairs well with colored denim or slacks!

Ojo Shirt - Hickory Stripe

This shirt is the perfect mix of a shirt and a jacket. This was a no-brainer for our rugged menswear style guide. You can layer it on top of a t-shirt for a chillier night, or you can wear it as is. It’s made of 55% hemp and 45% organic cotton. It has a tighter fit, so if you prefer a looser fit, you might want to size up!
