Forester's shirts: Something about checkers…

Euroman predicted this already in the spring, when the big brands during Copenhagen Fashion Week showed off their autumn and winter collections for 2017: TERN! If you are going to be in fashion this winter, then finally do not hesitate to throw your most checkered items on.

We know the checkered pattern from the chessboard, the Scottish kilt, the tie and of course the classic forester's shirt. But otherwise you can also frequently see checkered on both pants, jackets, sweaters, scarves, hats and yes indeed shoes. So there should be ample opportunity to dress checkered this season, if not on your entire outfit, then at least parts of it.

If you do not just feel like you want to go "all-in" on dice and thus wear dice from top to toe, then there is still plenty of opportunity to be 'on the beat' in a more toned-down way, for example by bringing the classic forester's shirt into play. At TeeShoppen, we love the colored shirt in the soft material, which is used by both men and women, and then it's just a bonus that it is actually one of the hottest items right now in the fashion industry. With a nice flannel shirt at hand, you are ready to face the cold autumn / winter - combined with a cool winter jacket, you will definitely be in control of your style for the cold winter months.

But what's really about that checkered soft shirt that never really manages to disappear from people's consciousness? The forester's shirt, on the other hand, is always in the back of the closet ready to be lifted out when it is again on the dice in the fashion industry.

Skovmandsskjorten, in short

The origins of the forester's shirt can be found in North America as far back as the 19th century. According to the fashion magazine Glamor , it was a company in Pennsylvania called Woolrich Woolen Mills that in 1850 invented the first forester's shirt. The lumberjack shirt was instantly a hit among the hard-working lumberjacks and “outdoorsy” types who lived in North America at the time. They loved the shirt in the soft cotton quality that could easily keep them warm when the weather was cold. The shirt was also good as a work shirt, as they could easily leave it open, close it or roll up the sleeves depending on the weather.

With Woolrich Woolen Mills' invention in the mid-19th century, this garment has been available in our closets for more than 150 years, and it does not appear to be disappearing again just yet. The forester's shirt is repeatedly lifted out of the closet and is today used by both men and women in a sea of ​​different colors and models.

Skovmandsskjorten - allemandseje! ​​

For many, the forester's shirt is associated with the 90s, where, among other things. Kurt Cobain "rocked" the checkered look - and although he was not the first or last to wear this iconic garment, it was clear in the street scene that many teenage fans in particular agreed with his style. In the 90s, it was cool to wear the open checkered shirt styled with a white or black t shirt underneath - preferably with a pair of worn jeans and some heavy boots, sneakers or the very familiar converse shoes. If you "rocked" this look, you were definitely on the beat!

Since then, it has been seen on various other celebrities, such as Pharrell Williams, who is often wearing the iconic "checkered" look, either in the form of a shirt, but also suits in the well-known Scottish checkered pattern. Williams likes to style his forester’s shirt with a hat, a leather jacket, a pair of cool pants and fashionable shoes, as well as the finishing touch: sunglasses and jewelry.

Today, the forester's shirt is universally owned, and is seen on both men and women, as well as known and unknown - yes, even on your mother! Skovmands-look does not know time, genres, classes, gender or generations, and will most likely continue in this shoal for a long time to come

Then choose if necessary. a slim-fit model that does the same for your look as a regular shirt - just in a much softer version. A black / dark gray flannel shirt will be nice for a family dinner where it should not be so formally, or for a cozy evening with friends at the bar for a few beers.
