Patagonia Men's Farrier's Work Shirt

Kinda Large
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

Outstanding Work Shirt

Forget the price. These Farrier work shirts are wonderful. In the left pocket I carry a mask. In the left tool pocket I carry a Streamlight. In the right tool pocket I carry a pen. In the right pocket I carry a iPhone plus. These shirts are warm in the winter and wearable most days in the summer. They have stood up very well to heavy use. I have re...

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.

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.

July 25, 2021

Super high Quálity

Its very warm and cozzy

July 24, 2021

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

almost sent it back because buttons too small and buttonholes too tight, and the cuffs need multiple buttons for proper adjustment. nice fabric, pretty good fit. I'm a long time fan but shopping on your jerky new site is annoying and a pain.

Great oversized work shirt

My wife loves this shirt. I got her one after her saying how much she loved the way mine looked. Great stuff as always from Patagonia

June 11, 2021

good looking shirt

great fit and terrific feeling fabric. I like the pencil pockets, you do not need to open the flap on the pocket.

May 18, 2021

Nice and heavy duty!

Fabric is great. Heavy duty and soft. Shirt is exactly what I was looking for to wear at my office/warehouse. Only issue for me is that the cuffs are too large. Will have to move the button.

May 11, 2021

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.... Read More Worry that this one wont last as long. Should have returned the second, but didnt ran it through wash and hot dry, minimal shrinkage. Now stuck with oversized shirt that doesnt fit right. Weird because Ive worn a medium in Patagonia for well over 15 years. Too bad companys quality control on sizing is slipping.

Hi Gerard, we're sorry that the sizing of the Navy shirt is off. Please feel free to [return]( it under warranty even if you have already washed it so you can get refunded for it and order a new one if you'd like.

Great shirt for work

I purchased this shirt for tree trimming work and other tasks. I am 5'11" and about 200 lbs. I purchased the medium size because the previous reviews stated that they run larger.

Very nice shirt.

Well made, good feel, nice pockets that fit my phone but runs big.

April 15, 2021

Large means large

Despite my limited verticality, I normally order large shirts to accommodate my shoulders and chest, and that normally works out just fine. In this case that was ill-advised - and when Patagonia says relaxed fit they mean it.

April 12, 2021

Solid Shirt

Nice shirt. Roomy pockets. Great feel. A lot of shirts of this style are too short, but this one is just right. I have not worn it long enough to comment on wear, but it looks bullet- proof. I dont love the metal buttons (I play the guitar), but I can live with them.

April 2, 2021

Rugged and will hold up 100%

Ive bought two of these so far, they will look great out of the wash for those that wonder about washing hemp. No need to iron, no wrinkles. Great all around shirt

March 30, 2021

Soft and tough best of both worlds!

Actually it all works, at least for me. The overall feel (hand) and drape is great and two count them - two pencil slots even!

March 25, 2021

Farrier shirt

Originally got the XL which was way too big but exchanged it for a large which is perfect. Not unusual for me to vary between the two. GREAT shirt- looks super, feels comfy and not rough at all. Yes- get one if this is your style.

March 21, 2021

New Favorite Shirt

I get a ton of complements on this shirt. Its really comfortable for work, whether thats out in the field or in the office. Fit is a bit larger than usual but makes for good layering.

March 21, 2021

Great shirt, it does run large. Order a size smaller like they have stated.

Normally I wear medium sizes with clothes but these definitely need to be sized down. I purchased small and it fits great. With that aside this is a wonderful shirt!

Love this Shirt!

This is a really good alternative to flannel shirts, with a different weave, look, and feel. Warmth and softness is very much the same, but has a different look, not so much like a "camping" shirt as flannel, a bit more style.

Ready for Work

I am 5,6 and have a medium build chest wise 38 ish and I ordered a small.

Nice shirt. Cool design.

This is a great shirt and becoming a favorite among my other Patagonia shirts and casual wear. My only complaint is that even in a size small (my Patagonia size) it fits too long over the torso.

Very Good Shirt

Well made work shirt. Fits a little large (relaxed), but this is what you want for work. Very comfortable. I have already given one to a workmate and he loves it. I will be buying more of them.

February 26, 2021

Incredibly Functional

A very functional shirt. Great fit. Works well for a day of work or a casual night out.

February 24, 2021

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. Subtle style for client meetings. Buttons are metal, never at risk for snapping in half while hauling materials. Safe to say these are the last work shirts I'll be buying for a ... Read Morewhile. While the pros are endless, just two cons worth mentioning: Metal buttons on cuffs will mare finished painted surfaces. And sizing consistency seems off - my green and blue shirts are a full 1.0'-1.5" longer in the sleeve and torso than the "hickory stripe" color, all size small, all washed identically.

February 24, 2021

Work horse shirt

It's gone through post hole digging, planing lumber, painting a fence, etc and after each wash looks good enough to wear on camera for business meetings.

February 21, 2021


very soft, yet burly.

February 18, 2021

Great Quality

It was risky buying a long sleeved shirt online because my arms are usually longer than the average sleeve. But these long sleeves fit just right. The length of the shirt is great too, I don't have to tuck it in.

February 7, 2021

Well made, tough material and comfortable

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.

February 5, 2021

Awesome shirt

Absolutely my favorite new shirt will 100% be buying more

February 2, 2021

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.

January 29, 2021

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.

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.

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!

Its a bit big overall great shirt

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.

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

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!

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.

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! ...

Solid and comfy

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.

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

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!

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 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.

January 21, 2020

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.

I haven’t fully broken in the shirt yet, but it feels like it’s made to take abuse. I’m very happy with the construction quality, and especially the fit. The XXL runs true to size, and is made to give you room to workin. Ultraslim/Petite fans need not apply.

Excellent shirt. Rugged. Breathable.

I appreciate the extended sizes. Shirts are built to last. Comfortable and looks great.

Great shirt. Very tough/durable and not too stiff. Handles outdoor climbing well and still nice enough to wear into the office. 10/10 would buy again

Great work shirt

Pros: This is a great work shirt. Very robust and ready for a honest days work. Cons: It is a touch short for my body type but that is a me problem not a shirt problem. If you have a long trunk then maybe buy the next size up. My wish: They made this shirt in Blaze Orange so I could wear it at safety sites or while out in the woods during huntin...

High quality shirt

The shirt fits well (5'11 male) and I was surprised with the build quality of the shirt. Consequently, the shirt feels a little heavy, which could be good or bad depending on what you're doing.

Great shirt - maybe size down?

Bought for my husband. He loves it! He’s usually a medium but because this had a relaxed fit, I got him the small and it fits perfectly while still allowing lots of movement. The fabric has a nice texture.

More of these

I bought the denim version of this shirt a few months ago and loved it so much that I went looking for another color - green this time. I wear the farrier as both a shirt and as a jacket. According to my wife, if I got a few more colors I wouldn't need anything else for daily wear. Feels good. Looks great. No need to tuck it in. Very versatile... Read More. Love it.

Will probably last forever

Heavy duty construction without feeling like canvas. Has a soft touch but still seems like it will be indestructible. Folks, they are not kidding when they say it is a roomy fit. I'm a very large mammal and I can wear a flannel underneath this shirt while maintaining a loose fit. My new favorite cool weather shirt.

Great shirt!

Got this for my husband as a gift and he loves it - wore it right away. It seems to run a bit larger than the Fjord Flannel as the M was a perfect fit for him in this one but a little tight in the Fjord (5'11", 190ish). Looks great on, nice heavy fabric, seems like it'll last a long time!!

This is a great shirt for both around the house on the weekends and still looks sharp enough for wearing to a normal office-type job if your office is always on the cooler side much like mine is.

Button Hole Stitching Pulling Out

I love this shirt! I wear it like a light jacket sometimes layered over a hoodie. For the most a part very well built and durable shirt. However, the stitching around several button holes has partially pulled out, allowing the fabric to fray and leaving a loop of threads inside the hole. This makes unbuttoning the shirt quite difficult because the ... Read Morebutton gets caught on the loop of thread and you have to untangle it.

Great Fall/Winter Shirt

Fantastic shirt! Heavy duty and comfortable. However as many of the reviewers have stated, the shirt does run large so I would recommend to buy one size down.

Also a thank you to Josh who helped in exchanging the large that I ordered and replacing it with a medium. Much better. I goofed on the size

hard-wearing, great construction, but polyester fabric content causes pilling

I love the shirt, but after a few months of relatively hard wear, the fabric is pilling noticeably. It doesn't affect the usefulness of the shirt, but I wouldn't recommend this shirt for casual wear. It does make me wonder why, after all the years of experience we have with polyester, why put it in the fabric? Hemp wears like iron on its ...

A comfortable quick drying non synthetic shirt.

I am size L usually. This shirt has quite a baggy fit. It’s kind of like putting on a light jacket. It dries fairly quick for a natural fiber shirt and seems a bit bullet proof.

Warm, durable shirt

I bought this shirt for casual use because it's nice looking, but it's sturdy enough for outdoor work. It's soft and comfortable, unlike some hemp shirts I've had. It's one of my favorites now. It's worth the price, considering its fine, multi-purpose qualities.

I'm buying another one

This is one of those rare things in life that remind a person of what real quality looks like. Heavy, yet soft, well stitched, every detail considered.

I'm not some kid trying to show the world my brand name swag. Any shirt with a collar and buttons shouldn't have a logo on the left chest unless you work at the Verizon phone store. 2) I wear an XL for the shoulder width and arm length, which is perfect, but the shirt from the chest down is a little more than ample. I have a 36" waist and my guess is this shirt could accommodate a 46" waist. this roominess makes the shirt extremely comfortable, but a little on the baggy side.

Wish it was Fire Resistant

This looked like a great option for me to wear at work until I saw it had polyester in it. It would be great if Patagonia made at least a shirt and pants that meet the requirements for Fire Resistant clothing (they are in 29 CFR1910.269 - basically no synthetic fiber can be used, has to be 100% cotton, wool or hemp.)

Read Morey Patagonia gear for their political and environmental standards but have more and more of a problem with Patagonia shirts fitting anymore. I'm an ex-football player but have been an avid hiker and fisherman all my life. I've got broad thick shoulders but not a muscle head. The problem I have with most Patagonia stuff is when I try an XL on it feels the the shoulders and arms and upper back is gonna blow out if I cross my arms too far. When I try an XXL the upper body is ok but it is way too big in my lower body. This shirt might be a touch long in the body but otherwise it fits perfect. So much so I am gonna order another one. I understand there are tons of different body types out there but I hope Patagonia starts to offer more shirts cut like this one. Bravo!

Amazing shirt

Simply stated, this shirt is amazing. I have two colors. One thing I’ll mention because I haven’t seen it mentioned in other reviews is that as the shirt wears, the black finish will wear off the buttons, revealing the copper beneath. The result looks AWESOME. Anyway keep it up, Patagonia, I love this shirt.

It probably overlaps 6" at the waist and I have a bit of a belly. I could probably fit a puffy jacket UNDER it and still button it. It is perfect around the shoulders though. I could probably fit a medium, but am worried about the shoulders being tight around the back. I can live with a nice relaxed fit.

Hemp, my new favorite work wear material

The first time I saw this shirt, I was mostly just curious how hemp would feel on my skin, worried that it would be too itchy or scratchy.

I work as a Chef ... Read Morefull time, working up to 60 hours a week on some weeks. I only own two of these, and I interchange them about everyday. They do very well in the wash after about two months of usage, I see no shrinkage yet. The shirts also don't smell bad and they have no visible stains. Overall, these shirts do better in a kitchen than any chef coat Ive used. Plus. they feel really nice too. Overall, I would say if you want to try out hemp as a material, or if you work in a hard environment, Id recommend these. They also are not a bad winter/autumn shirt either. ONE thing to note though. I bought the striped shirt and it seems like it was built differently than my plain black shirt. The striped shirt feels thicker than my black one, I believe they had to make it thicker because the design of the stripes themselves make the shirt thicker. I prefer my black one which is thinner, because it provides more mobility. The thicker stripped one does provide more protection and warmth though. Just something to keep in mind if you want the STRIPED one.
