Wilderness shirt

I have designed a new wilderness shirt, which a friend has now made for me.

The material is worsted wool, with leather sewn across the shoulders and around the collar.  I have also sewn leather along the bottom edge of the two breast pockets.  The buttons I have made from Moose horn.

The back of the shirt is longer, so that it covers my backside.

The shirt has a poly-cotton lining to reduce wind penetrating.

There is a leather baffle in the front to also reduce cold air penetrating inside.

I am very pleased with the end result and it is incredibly warm.  A belt warn over the shirt, around the waist helps to hold in warm air.
