Patagonia Men's Farrier's Work Shirt

Kinda Large
January 16, 2022

Great shirt.

I've gotten many compliments.

January 10, 2022

tough enough

super solid flannel, great for brisk fall days when you don't quite need a jacket but that deck isn't going to build itself

January 5, 2022

Runs Large

Ordered my usual medium. Felt that the proportions of this shirt are a little off; it feels wide and awkward. I'd suggest you size down. Also, IRL the stone blue also looks a bit more 'denim-y' than I wanted. Will return.

Hey Elizabeth, thanks for the review. The Men's Farrier Work Shirt will have a boxier fit because it was designed for a masculine physique. It also has a relaxed fit, which could be what was contributing to the fit issues you mentioned. To check on the fit of any item, go to the product page and look underneath the size run options. You might find that the women's version works better for you, check it out [here](

Good shirt

It seems like it runs a bit big

January 3, 2022


Everything OK, the other color I like out of stock.

January 3, 2022

Fits so weird

The make is so good that hurt not to keep it. I'm 6'3 178lb usualy size L, I read to get a size smaller, it was width perfect but it was too short so I know it wasn't gonna fit after the first wash. Size large would have fit huge for me. Weird sizing.

New favorite

Love this shirt. Looks great, feels great - on and off the site. I have a feeling it's going to be a mainstay for quite some time, especially in the colder months.

Farrier Shirt Size

About a year ago I purchased a size M Farrier shirt. I liked the color and quality but the sleeves were too long and it fit loosely through the chest. I kept it and wear it as an over shirt. I ordered two more Farrier shirts size S recently but these were too tight under the arms a through the chest and the sleeves were still to long. I returned bo... Read Moreth shirts for a refund. I love the shirt but the sizing does not fit me in either the size S or size M.

December 20, 2021


Love the cut! Love the shirt! Gonna buy more in another color. Dont change a thing. Excellent quality.

December 19, 2021

An actual XXL!

Sleeves and body both quite long, hard to find these days! Almost a throwback to when Patagonia used to offer x-longs in some items! Super happy with overall quality and fit. (I'm 225lbs) Just a great feel and look all around. Bravo.

December 18, 2021

Very durable and strong

This jacket is great for my construction job because it is a thick material that protects from dangerous materials and is insulating enough to keep me warm in freezing conditions. I appreciate how there is enough room in the shoulders for a full range of motion

December 18, 2021

Best button down shirt ever

Bought this shirt because of the description and the great reputation behind Patagonia clothing. Love wearing untucked and plenty of room for a wide array of movements. Im get many compliments on the shirt and since have purchased two more. Rugged yet classy enough to wear out to dinner. I have a long torso and arms and the XL fits me perfectly. I ...

I am swimming in this Large. With most brands a Large is perfect for me but not this particular shirt. Other than that the shirt is perfect.

Farrier Shirt-Cool, But Runs Large

Maybe it is supposed to run large. Farriers put shoes on horses, so its understandable they need a large shirt. I am 60 175 lbs and I got a medium. It is just pretty big and if I were going to do it over again I would have gotten a small. Other than that, its a great, durable, thick fabric shirt.

December 12, 2021

Men's Farrier shirt

I generally wear a medium. I had to order a small in this shirt and the Shop Shirt because they are running large (lesson learned on prior purchase). I wear a medium in the fjord shirts and all other shirts like Island Hopper etc. Wrist and necks seem large.

Buttons difficult to fasten

Hello, Since this is being marketed as a work shirt, maybe research the market a bit. "Workers" use their hands for a living and as we get older, we develop arthritis in our hands and finger joints.

Warm and cozy

Very warm and well made . Ordered rwo more.

December 9, 2021

A great cotton work shirt/shell absent precipitation.

A durable and tough work shirt that I wear cutting with a chainsaw. I bought it slightly larger for moving room and had a tailor taper the sides. I'd love a blue color instead of brown.

December 6, 2021

Not for short weightlifters

So the short version is Im a little built in my chest, to the point where I ordered the medium of this. It was too long, and had a bunch of room around the waist where it looked frumpy to tuck in. The small fits my build great in the mid section, but the chest is a bit tight. Like if I went for an exaggerated Hulk Hogan stretch Id pop the top butto... Read Moren. So I go two buttons loose, and it looks great. Live the shirt, holds up well for my construction work. Will be buying the other colors

Most comfortable & rugged shirt Ive ever owned

I have purchased 5 of these shirts over the years. They are the perfect combination of comfortable & rugged. I can go to the office & look nice or chop wood or do demo & the shirt stays looking good & holds up to any extreme wear situation. Right me very large, order 1-2 sizes smaller than your normal shirt size.

November 22, 2021


i use them in my work as a landscaper. theyre durable and professional. i wear them frequently.

November 20, 2021

Built tough

This is an excellent work shirt. The fit is roomy with out being baggy. It stands up well to wandering around in the woods as well as banging around in the shop and barn. Quickly becoming my favorite shirt.

November 19, 2021

bulky fit but nice material

I liked the shirt. The colors could be more classic flannel. I ordered a Large. I'm 6' 210. It was pretty bulky. It fit weird too, like boxy. I returned it just due to the size issue but I liked the shirt.

November 18, 2021

Exactly what I wanted

I'm very impressed with this shirt. Soft, durable, well-constructed. The fit is boxy, but I tend to wear it untucked and unbuttoned, like a jacket. Does a great job of concealing things worn around your belt that you prefer strangers not know about.

November 18, 2021


I think it was a personal preference; the shirt seemed to have a large collar and seemed bulky on me. Patagonia fleeces in M fit me perfectly as do other shirts. Anyway, really liked the piece just not the fit. Also I kind of like having the Patagonia label not so in front of the face which I overlooked when I purchased. Love your gear, clothes and...

November 14, 2021

Size is a bit generous for my build

Somewhat athletic guy here with broader chest. Shirt fits great up top but I feel like a large around my waist (30). Cant wear this as casually as I want. Might have to order a size smaller.

November 13, 2021

wears great, but odd differences between colors

i have an older brownish shirt, and bought a second one in blue. the only misfire on the new one is that it only has one set of buttons on the cuff, rather than two on the older shirt. the cuff is so large that without the second set of buttons that its too loose and gets in the way. the fit

Response from Patagonia

Hi Kurt, we recently had to remove some of the Men's Farrier's Work Shirts from our inventory due to the issue with the second set of buttons that were missing on the sleeve. We'll reach out to you directly to help you get a free replacement.

November 12, 2021

Good fit

I'm usually a medium but I'm a 6' slim guy so medium was to baggy for my preferred slimmer fit. Small fit me like a fitted medium but doesn't look small.

November 10, 2021

Best shirt Ive ever worn

While trying to update my daily fall/winter long sleeve shirts I came across the Farrier Shirt. It is hands down the most comfortable and functional shirt I now own. Regardless if I am in the office, on the shop floor or in the forrest this will be my new go to. Excellent job.

November 9, 2021

Great Shirt

Just the right weight, not too heavy. Run slightly large through the chest. It is meant to be worn over layers. I need one in every color!

November 3, 2021

Total comfort

Most comfortable and reassuring flannel shirt I have. I have a lot of them! This is the shirt you will have in your closet that you keep picking to wear over all the rest.

November 1, 2021

Best quality shirts I've ever owned.

Just bought 3 more. Heavyweight and rugged BUT remarkably comfortable and I don't overheat indoors! They didn't cut corners. The shirt buttons don't stretch apart at the chest, the sleeves are long enough to reach my wrist in any position, unrestricted range of motion, and when I lift my hands over my head my midsection doesn't ... Read Moreshow! Metal buttons, double stitched seams, and hemp fabric are good signs that this shirt will last for years. Noticeably better quality than my NorthFace or Columbia button ups and I could immediately see and feel the difference. Worth the extra money. Perfect for fall yard-work, fishing, working in the garage, hiking, or even wearing to my casual office job. I have no doubt these shirts will last for years. Makes me dislike every other button up shirt I own. Hemp may be my new favorite fabric. The XL size runs a bit larger than my TNF & Columbia brands which is great because it means it will still fit comfortably after I wash it. I love these shirts.

October 27, 2021

high quality

great quality in regard to feel of the shirt, texture and colors. Also very durable. I also like knowing my purchase helps support the environment through Patagonias efforts to heal the world.

October 26, 2021

The best

I love the quality of the wear this is by far one of the best outdoor activity casualwear companies there is

October 25, 2021

The only flannel shirt I'll ever need

All flannel shirts or anything close to it are getting donated. I'll only need this red / black plaid version and maybe one more. I'm done with everything else. Patagonia will have lost their minds if they stop making this shirt. Note: I am a True Large and the large fit me like a circus tent. Medium was perfect

October 24, 2021

Rugged and Unique

This shirt separates itself from the pack, its unique and rugged. You can wear it to work or out on the town. I normally wear an XL, but from the reviews went with the large and its perfect.

October 22, 2021

Farrier Work Shirt Reconsideration

Well, Patagonia has been taken over by a new product guru. The shirt is okay, the buttons are small and made for a Russian ballerina, the material is weird; soft but somewhat confusingly inept about keeping you warm or cold (okay cool). I can remember back when Patagonia offered Fall Catalog of shirts that were just right in every way.

October 19, 2021

Good work shirt

The shirt feels nice and wears well. Only time will tell whether it lasts, but I have a feeling it will. Based on other reviews I ordered one size smaller but had to return it because I found the arms and chest to be small.

October 15, 2021


Just received and I'm already in love. The fabric is much softer than I would expect for a work shirt, and the sewing is superb. I like the metal buttons since I find snaps are usually too small and hard to close. Again, perfectly tailored and my compliments to the sewer -- the seams are perfect and sturdy. I got the blue and the color is gorg... Read Moreeous -- I'll have to force myself to wait before ordering the red/fire.

Very comfortable but hate the buttons!

Really like this shirt! It did take me 3 tries to get it right. I initially ordered the Stone Blue in large (Im 5 10, 210lbs). It was HUGE! So I exchanged it and changed my mind on the color; got the Dark Ash in medium. Lovely looking shirt, but the medium was very snug, so back to the large I guess. Uggh!!! Patagonia only exchanges 1x, so had to r... Read Moreeturn the shirt for a refund then re-order in large again. For whatever reason the Dark Ash in large wasnt as huge as the Stone Blue one?!?! Weird. At any rate, its very comfortable & of course well made (love Patagonias build-quality). The reason for the 4 stars are the buttons. OMG!!! The buttons are much too small (unless your a hobbit I guess???). Then the button-holes are too small for the already too small buttons. You almost need pliers to get the tiny little buttons into the undersized button-holes! I mean I guess a larger button would impact the look a little bit, but man! At least make the buttons a little thicker so there is something to grip. I felt like I was going to have bloody fingers by the time I got it buttoned up. Maybe the button holes will stretch a bit with time, but maybe fine-tune that detail designers!

Burly and Weird

This shirt is a half-step below a denim jacket. Its thicc, stout, grumpy-get-off-my-lawn, thinks youre a baby, tough. I love it. What I dont love is the strange tailoring that has seemed to plague Patagonia for as long as I can remember. Tailoring that doesnt work with movement. Its getting weird at this point that it hasnt been remedied. Raise... Read More your hands above your head and the hem seems to somehow multiply that movement by some demonic factor to leave your plumbers crack waving to the world. Reach down in front of you and the seams seem to be stretching to their limit across anything resembling broad shoulders. The fit is not meant for me, and Patagonia clothing just doesnt seem to work the way I would hope for me, but it is a dope jacket/shirt that appears to be ready for abuse and use.

October 14, 2021

This is a large

Im a classic medium. But I look like a child in this medium. Planning on returning it, just havent had time. I love Patagonia more than any other brand, but your designs and fit are mostly terrible these days, which makes me sad. If it was 50% better it would be all I wear. The wool shirt I have from you is a medium also, and fits well. WTF?

Hey Nick, thanks for the review on the Farrier's Work Shirt. We're really sorry to hear that you've experienced some trouble with size consistency, and we've shared your feedback with the rest of the team.

Fall is Farrier shirt weather

The only size small shirt I own, so guidance was accurate. Hemp fabric is stiffer than any flannel, but its a nice weight and feel. Second year Ive worn this, feel qualified to review.

Collar Roll/Buttons

Overall great shirt. Very comfortable, and fit is good. My only feedback/comment would be that the shirt needs to have a collar roll/buttons.

Super High Quality and A Medium thats TRULY Medium

I cant say enough good about this shirt. I have bought 2 other colors of it since. The design and overall construction is unmatched, in my personal experience.

Read More to me the sizing and quality. I am 39 and about 5ft 9in and 195lb. To have a Mens Medium fit me as good as Patagonia does it, means everything to me.

Thank you

Great Yard Work Shirt

The material feels durable yet soft to the skin. It will wear well over time and it's not a shirt you don't mind getting dirty.

Pretty solid shirt. Feels heavy duty and looks good. Perfect length for me but arms are a little too baggy. Overall, I love it!

September 20, 2021

Super Awesome!

I can't wait for fall to wear this everyday. I immediately order one in another color. Super soft but seems like it will be durable. Fits a little big which is nice for us larger types. Anything slim fit for on the border I need to go up to XXL, this is great at XL.

September 13, 2021

The perfect rugged shirt

Absolutely love this shirt. It runs a little large so I sized down to a Medium as I typically wear a Large. The fit is perfect. I love how durable, soft, and high quality the material is. It looks great worn casually or while working. Cant wait to buy more

September 8, 2021

Solid shirt

Comfy shirt, fits without being too loose. Built solid like it will last. I'll be living in this all fall and winter. I ordered a small and x-small based on the reviews saying it ran large. I didn't even need to try on the small. I'm 5'6" 140lbs, trim w/ bumpy muscles

Awesome Denim-esque jacket

As with most Patagonia gear, I move down in my normal size. I am usually a Large in every other brand. The Medium fits how I like it - closer to the body, more of slim fit. Not big enough for a jacket underneath, only enough for a thermal or a t-shirt. Great though, more grey/black than black. Seems well-built and made to last.

August 24, 2021

Patagonina's big/small dilemma

As with other Relaxed fit shirts from Patagonia, there is too much room in the body, but not enough room in the shoulders and sleeves. Small through the top and big through the bottom seems to be the way they are cutting shirts the last couple of years. I had to return two of them. Other than the way they are cut, they were fine enough shirts.

Great shirt! Sleeve width made for Thor

This a great shirt. The fabric is amazing and the design is perfect. I love the double pockets with Pen holders. I love the buttons. However, I would love to see this same shirt in a slimmer fit though as some of us don't have arms like Thor

July 25, 2021

Great all around

I have a medium and a small. The small fits me more to fit/ snug. While the medium is perfect as a light weight jacket with a layer underneath. Both fit me well just one is loose and slightly baggy while the other more fitting.

review title--what does that even mean...?

Inconsistent sizing which is too bad.

Bought the hickory stripe when these first came out. Medium fit me like a glove, very happy. Sleeve length was perfect. Cloth was a little stiff but will break in just fine. Bought the navy medium since I like the first one so much. Much longer in body length plus the sleeves need 2 rolls of the cuff to fit. Cloth is much softer more like flannel....

Large means large

Tough work shirts, but sizing is difficult

I wear these shirts on a weekly basis as a carpenter, and they hold up really well. Flexible but tough fabric, comfortable all day, sleeves rolled up or buttoned down.

While the pros are endless, just two cons worth mentioning: Metal buttons on cuffs will mare finished painted surfaces.

I opted for a large due to working in this shirt. Its a bit big in terms of what I would wear normally but the extra room is great while working. Very durable construction and glad to know its responsibly sourced and made.

Awesome shirt

Absolutely my favorite new shirt will 100% be buying more

My favorite work shirt

I wear this shirt for construction and field work. It is my go to for its durability and comfort. It's one of those shirts that's so comfortable that you don't notice it. The length is great for tall folk.

Outstanding Work Shirt

Usually, I wear a XL but in the Patagonia Farrier, L is the correct size for me. I WISH these shirts were made as short sleeve shirts too. The Farrier is warm, and has mini pocket places for a pen, and a Streamlight flashlight too. I carry a Covid mask in the left regular pocket and an iPhone Pro in the right regular pocket. The pockets are deep an... Read Mored have button down cover flaps. The Farrier is well made and worth the $100 per shirt they cost. I cannot find any other brand of shirt that matches the quality, and functionality of the Patagonia Farrier shirt.

Super soft and very well made

I originally bought a small, hoping for a fitted look but the shoulders felt a bit snug. I sent it back for a M and Im happy Ill be able to add a layer underneath for hikes and cool weather bike rides. The fabric is heavy duty yet super soft, like light flannel meets linen... glad I finally bought this shirt after eyeing it for a few years.

Gift for partner

I got this as a gift for my partner and he loves it! The material seems very durable and looks like it will last him for years to come.

January 21, 2021

Will last for years

Fit is on the large side, in length especially, but this provides plenty of room and coverage during vigorous work activities. Buttons are great, material seems indestructible and, while not a flannel, provides decent warmth while layering. Originally ordered a large, felt it was too long and exchanged it for a medium. The medium was better in body... Read More and sleeve length but strangely the torso felt extremely tight compared to the large. It felt like a jumped down two sizes and was very constricting. I exchanged the M back for a L again and feel much better about it. The length isn't a deal breaker and I will probably order another.

January 20, 2021

Highly Recommend!

I bought this for a friend and he absolutely loved it. He ordered 3 more! Loved the material super comfortable.

Works hard, lasts forever

I wear these shirts every day for hard foundry work. They are by far the longest lasting shirts Ive found, with the exception of the buttons. I sew a button back on every once in a while but otherwise Ive been continually impressed. I bought some when they first came out and they ran very large, but the ones I bought recently are true to size with ...

Loose outer layer for work & play

I'm 5-11, 175 Lbs. Happy with this shirt. As described, the shirt fits roomy & loosely. Works well as an outer-layer, like a barn jacket would. Wearing it over several layers it still provides good range of motion and a comfortable fit. Have been wearing it outside for chores in below freezing weather. Works really well with no issues. Sle... Read Moreeves & torso are long enough to keep covering while reaching overhead to prune, or during raking, shoveling etc. Wearing it only with a t-shirt it is a bit baggy, though it still looks and feels great. Breast pencil pockets are discrete and functional, as are the pockets themselves. I'm glad there's a lefty pencil pocket also. (most work shirts have features for right-handers - pencil pockets on left sleeve, etc).

January 8, 2021

Have been told I wear it too often!

Exactly what I wanted out of this shirt. Sturdy buttons, heavy and warm, amazing layer for spring/fall or mid layer for winter. Comfortable and flexible, already bought another. Could use more color options though, I want more variation in this great shirt!

January 8, 2021


Its a bit big overall great shirt

December 30, 2020

Best shirt ever. Going to buy a 2nd

Wow, off all the Patagonia stuff I have ever purchased, this is the holy grail product. Tough as nails, comfy, handsome, and practical. Dont even think about it, BUY THIS SHIRT. I got the industrial green color, but now Im looking into the blue.

December 25, 2020

Awesome shirt!

Another solid buy from Patagonia! The shirt runs larger than expected. But I also prefer clothes that are more true-to-size.

December 25, 2020


Solid shirt, heavy, and comfortable. 6/190 and M is a good fit

December 9, 2020

Warm and Rugged

Has quickly become one of my favorite shirts. Heavy duty and perfect for winter. Great quality fabric and seems durable.

December 8, 2020

don't even try to borrow it

extremely comfortable

November 22, 2020

Thick but breathable!

Thick, breathable, and work appropriate I had to buy 2 more. The hemp/cotton/polyester combinations work well and create a shirt that feels like its going to last a long time. 6/190 and the M fits well. Recommend

November 22, 2020

Solid workhorse

Replaced an 80s era Pati canvas work shirt. Had to size up (due to the effects of gravity, age and contemporary sizing) in order to have the same loose fit. Pockets are actually large enough to be useful and the separate pen sleeves are a useful addition. Hope this one lasts a long as the last one!

November 22, 2020

First out of the closet!

Kinda wear this like my old Pati canvas shirt from the 80s. Second layer, more pockets, transition seasons. Great midweek work shirt!

November 21, 2020

Super warm and stylish!

Great shirt with strong build quality. Its a good value for the price...

keep the old, own the new...

The Farrier shirt exceeded my expectation on the first wearing. Great fit and details. I am a long time Patagonia customer since 1983. I have a 28 year old "stand-up" canvas cotton shirt in "sage". I originally bought for my Father. The old shirt has been a favorite for outdoor work, and the last few years in the winter, I hav... Read Moree used it in my woodshop. I decided I needed to try the Farrier not to replace, but add to my choices for the week. Fantastic details, strong fabric that will save me from abrasion as I handle rough stock and floor tool collisions as I move around the shop.

November 9, 2020

Durable and comfortable

Bought an XL first then had to switch out for a large. Super sturdy and comfortable. One of my favorite shirts now.

November 5, 2020

Great feeling shirt.

I am a large woman and an avid outdoor enthusiast. I wish Patagonia would make 3 XL for WOMEN so I could get a better fit. Other than that... it is fabulous!

October 30, 2020

Durable and soft

Tough yet soft shirt that feels as though the fabric will last through years of abuse. I will buy more- big fan of how supple the hemp fabric becomes as it wears.

October 16, 2020

Not worth it.

These shirts have seam issues. They come undone at the seams as if there was not enough fabric for the stitch to bite into. I have purchased two; they both have the same issue on different parts of the shirt. I would probably avoid buying it until the manufacturing process is improved. Other than that, both were my favorite shirts for month I owned... Read More them. Disappointment to say say the least.

A Patagonia Classic: Great Value in a Durable Work Shirt

After pruning, chain sawing, etc for a year in my first one, I just purchased a second Farrier for casual wear, as I consider this a new Patagonia classic (coming from a guy who has three decades experience with Patagonia and three jackets going past two decades). Once it's broken in over pints in the pubs, etc., then it joins me in the yard! ... Read MoreRe: the sizing confusion in the Reviews, I find the fit guide is accurate for the Medium in terms of 38-40 size and 34 sleeve, but even for a guy with a 35 inch waist (me), the torso is very roomy. I would prefer two inches less width, albeit, the garment still hangs well on my torso.

September 20, 2020

Roomy and warm

I was looking for a durable and warm work shirt while working in the yard and also for casual use. I found it. Deep and wide front pockets. Sleeve length is perfect. I'm 6' tall and about 155 lbs and the large was perfect. I like shirts that are not tight fitting. I live in Northern New York and this will be a great winter shirt. I really...

Great work shirt

Perfect when the day is a little cooler but not cold enough to put a jacket. Im actually a Farrier and shoeing horses so u had to get one. Love it so much I end up getting a second one. Comfortable over another shirt and easy to wash love the shirt

September 16, 2020

Solid and comfy

I saw the work line runs a bit larger so instead of buying a large I got a medium and it fits great. The hemp is heavier than most but comfy on the skin or over a tee underneath. Feels very durable and strong.

Interesting "hard fabric and vintage feeling design in the striped farrier shirt.

The striped farrier shirt fabric is thick and solid and feels like it's very firmly woven. The other work shirts are softer and drape more easily. The site is very poor at explaining the dramatic differences between the fabrics. I bought the farrier's work shirt, and then later I got another different solid color work shirt and thought ... Read Morethe fabrics would have the same texture. I was seeking that same texture in a different color and was disappointed that the second shirt didn't have the firm, rugged tactile sense of the farrier's shirt. They are so different that they should be far better differentiated on the web site. I was under the impression they would be similar shirts. They are not. I don't want to say the other shirts are inferior. Not at all. They are excellent shirts, but too different to use the same name or be lumped together with the farrier's shirt.

September 14, 2020

Soft and Durable

Bought this shirt on a whim for work. Now i want all the colors. It is large so i put it over a T shirt. It is soft, but durable as are all Patagonia products.

Really tough but good looking, too

This is my third farrier's work shirt. As warned in the catalog, work wear is cut big and roomy, but it was just what I was looking for. They are great for yard work, on the river, or riding horses.

September 2, 2020

Just right

I love this shirt! I am a farmer and appreciate the durability without sacrificing comfort! Id add a small slot on the top of one of the pockets to hold a pen or pencil. Thanks

September 1, 2020

Perfect shirt to work hard in

This was a gift for my brother who works on every project known to man and then heads to high mountains to camp and fish. It suits him perfectly!

September 1, 2020

Farrier's Work Shirt

This shirt definitely runs a little large. I especially found the sleeves too long which is too bad for a work shirt. Materials are high quality (fabric and buttons) as is the single needle tailoring.

July 27, 2020

Recommend Sizing Down

I'm 5'11" and 170lbs. Consistently a medium in Patagonia gear, but the small fits me well. Recommend the same advice others have shared, size down if you're looking for a more tailored fit. Great piece, comfortable and warm, and chest pockets have ample space. Can easily fit a large mobile phone (Galaxy S10) with room to spare.

July 22, 2020


I should not listen to most of the reviews here about go down a size or two. WRONG. If you are a decent size person not having chopstick arms and flat chest, stick with your true size. I wear large and go down to Medium because of most reviews whining about how this shirt so big. I cannot even button my chest and sleeve has zero room to move.

Hi Minseok. We're really sorry that this actually ended up being too tight. Please feel free to return it for a refund and purchase a size up if you'd like. We're also always happy to email you any item's measurements chart so you can feel more confident about your next purchase.

My new favorite shirt

I bought this shirt several months ago and immediately realized it was one of the best shirts I have ever owned. It is well-made, sturdy, fits well, and looks great. After wearing the first one for several months I bought a second in a different color. These will last for years and hold up to rough use.

My go-to shirt for work

Working in a ski and bike shop, our clothes tend to take a beating. For years I worked in the Fjord flannels, but they were sometimes too warm. The Farrier doesn't run as hot, looks good and has become my favorite shirt Patagonia makes. Own 3 and will absolutely buy a few more.

Cool beans

Most pleased with this purchase. Long been a fan of hemp back to the very first clothing items Patagonia offered using it. ’96 or so? Always preferred natural fabrics: 100% hemp, org cotton, linen, wool and or blends of these. Stopped by the Portland store more expressly to try this. Felt the notably substantial yet still surprisingly soft material... Read More and found myself directly rethinking things. Actual garments measurements of the size M purchased ~~> 23” pit to pit, 19” shoulder seam to shoulder seam and 25” from the shoulder seam to the end of cuff. As I happen to have longer arms the fit’s correct and satisfying for this frame. Full latitude to layer underneath or not depending on the temp and how hard I happen to expect to be working. Showing the greatest of care I was able to remove the more prominent branding and not damage the shirt in the least. The ‘ink black’ I find more of a dark grey or charcoal. Now I’m seeing the dark ash or alder green, one of these coming toward me.

January 13, 2020

Great Work Shirt

I leave this shirt hanging in my shop and put it on for jobs from waxing to outdoor work. It takes it all in stride with a nice but tough exterior texture that handles and mitigates abrasion well. The two pencil slots seem to help me from misplacing my marking instruments.

January 6, 2020

Comfortable, heavy, strong, but large

I'm 5'10", 155lbs. I usually pivot between size S and M in shirts of this nature, but usually size S in Patagonia. They are just within the limits of not being too small. But this shirt ran very large. It's easily a Medium+ in size compared to any other button down shirt in my closet, be they Patagonia or not. I love the fabric... Read More. The weave is attractive, the blue color very sharp, and the stitching and buttons feel top notch. I'd probably wear it everyday if it didn't swallow me.
