I would never call myself an experienced fisherman by any means. Although, I do occasionally bait a hook a few times a year and did cast a line a few times this weekend at the lake. With that said, I’ve been following the coastal brand, Atlantic Drift, from the early days and purchased a tour visor from them over 3 years ago to use on the golf course. A few weeks back, the team sent me over a few of their Buxton button downs and a hat to review and send feedback.
What did I think?
Upon first inspection the shirts looked great and two of them even sported a wrinkle-free tag. I threw them in the laundry and wore them around town a few times for various events.
I am a huge fan of the fabrics. They aren’t a true “wrinkle-free” as the tag said, but they didn’t take much but a quick steam from the iron to freshen them up. The fit is a little on the boxy side, but after talking to Nathan (one of the co-founders), he said his goal is to work on slimming up the fit just a bit. The shirts feature a button down collar, pearl buttons, box pleat, barrel cuffs, and chest pocket with the Atlantic Drift logo. The collar has a very nice roll when worn causally with the top two buttons unbuttoned.
These are great causal shirts for the spring/summer seasons. Pair ’em with some chinos at work and transition to denim for a night on the town on Friday, and roll up the sleeves and wear them with shorts to run errands on Saturday or Sunday.
The shirts are even on sale on their site right now for $69! Hop on over to their website at atlantic-drift.com to grabs yours.
