Patagonia Men's Farrier's Work Shirt

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.

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...

My new all-purpose shirt

The description said the buttoning breast pockets would hold my phone and each had a pencil slot. Review suggested the shirt was big, so I downsized and am very happy in the small. Im 160 lbs., 5 ft., 8in. Im gonna wear this shirt forever although I will never shoe a horse. May be the only shirt that will get me out of my Patagonia organic cotton f... Read Morelannels!

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.

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. I could be a walking advertisement some days. This shirt and a rain coat (Torrentshell) will be my go to uniform for work in the Pacific Northwest this year. And I will look good at horse ba...

Heavy Duty

Substantial shirt with great style and color.

September 5, 2020

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!

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.

Super robust and durable shirt. Fit a bit large, but solid construction for sure.

The fabric feels really solid, and I feel confident doing some labor work wearing it. I think this shirt will last me a while.

Takes the chill off

Perfect hard wearing shirt. Ideal for spring and fall as an outer layer to take the chill off. Also good as a layer through the winter. Love it

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.

This shirt is perfect - I wanted a comfortable shirt that I could wear every day sometimes alone - sometimes layered - I am in all different types of weather - inside - outside -all day long

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. Unfortunately, it's usually worn under a jacket or in an informal outdoor environment when not in public.

Good stuff.

I purchased the shirt as a gift, and it was a hit. Fit, heft of cloth, and looks are superb.

Farriers shirt

Like they say, fits large--as in the men's medium fits me fine and I usually wear a large or large tall. One more thing, the shoulder/upper-chest panels are cut on the bias, which is great for ease and looks good in the dark ash and alder. However I returned one in hickory stripe--in real life the shoulder stripes at a diagonal look much like ... Read Morea "western" shirt. Okay if that's what you like. Great shirts.

Good fit and feel

5’ 9” 145lbs size Small fit perfect. Exactly what I was looking for in a flannel type shirt. Surprisingly soft feel. Can be tucked in when needed but probably not the right cut for all day wear tucked in. Quality of material and craftsmanship is worth the money- very nice! You wont be disappointed.

This shirt rates up there with my best/favorite shirts ive collected over the years, a plurality of which are Patagonia which never seem to wear out.

Excellent build, looks, roomy

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.

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

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.

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?

Great shirt, true to size expectation. As with most Patagonia gear, solid construction. I like that this is a heavier seems to help it keep its shape after washing’s.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

If I had to complai... Read Moren about anything I would say 1) I dislike the logo on the chest. I don't need a Patagonia name tag on my $100 shirt. 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.

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. Turns out, when I got it and wore it, hemp is very similar to feel to denim. So if you like your jeans, you'll probably like these shirts. I own two of these shirts, I use them for work. 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.

Go into... Read More the store, try on the shirt, and you will walk out buying it. Probably get a size smaller than you normally do.

Great fit / Super strong --> Hemp is cool

I love this shirt. I find myself wearing it all the time. I have the western snap shirt in hemp too, and love that one as well. Patagonia hit it out of the park with this hemp fabric. Soft, super strong, wears well, has a great drape in the way it hangs. Can't recommend it enough. This shirt runs a tad large, but I wear mine as an over shirt a... Read Morend its great. Perfect for fall. I bought the blue. Will be interesting to see next year which colors they do. I hope they do the Pelican color like they did the hemp shorts.

Perfection !

This is the best shirt I have ever owned hands down! The shirt is Perfect in every way from the fit and the feel to the drape too the way it moves. It’s a smart very well-made tough shirt that will quickly become a classic ! I purchased one several weeks ago shortly after receiving the first one purchased another one and haven’t taken the two of... Read Moref. Whether wearing it at the office,fishing for Brook trout in the mountains in Vermont to doing yard work. The shirt is heavy providing protection without being bulky. I’ve worn it in 49° weather in the mountains fishing too 85°weather going back-and-forth to work. In all situations I was completely comfortable. If I could knock the shirt in anyway it would be that it doesn’t have a second button on the cuff to cinch it tighter to the wrist..... but with one email I was sent six extra buttons so I can make the modification myself so I really have nothing to complain about. The whole workwear where line in general is just fantastic ! it’s the perfect Alternative to the slim fit skinny jeans phase we seem to be in now. Keep on making workwear that’s works !

More Than A Work Shirt

I ordered the Men's Farrier's Shirt in my normal size large when it first came out with the intention of using it in my woodworking shop and for outdoor chores. It was huge so I returned it for a size medium,which fit loose but just right. I was surprised at its heft without being heavy,soft but sturdy fabric,fashionable straight cut hem,... Read Moreease of movement and metal buttons that are easy to grasp. While there is no doubt it is built to be rugged,it immediately became my favorite non-work shirt. I just returned from a month long tour of coastal Ireland and Scotland which I packed for the recommended "four seasons in a day". While it never rained,I experienced the other three seasons and the Farrier's Shirt handled them all brilliantly. So much so that I never unpacked any of my coats,sweaters or foul weather gear. Buttoned up it kept off the damp morning chill and unbuttoned I wore it as a casual jacket over a t-shirt. It was just at home hiking the Isle of Arran as it was in the Scotch bar of the Balmoral Hotel. Thank you Patagonia for a versatile and pleasurable piece of gear.

A great REAL work shirt

This is one of my favorite work shirts. Soft and comfortable from the start. It is cut well and fits great. The cuffs are big enough to wear a watch and pockets I can actually use. Please Patagonia keep making work clothes! I support your environmental stance and will keep buying your work wear.

Durable,Well made shirt

I love the feel of this shirt,its a heavier weight and is still flexible and not restrictive. Very durable and well made definitely recommended.

April 6, 2018

Sturdy and high quality shirt

First of all..thank you *very* much for the 3XL sizing. Shirt fits perfectly on my 6'9' big frame leaving plenty of room to bend,move,reach etc. Long length in body and long sleeve length was as expected per sizing chart. Excellent! The fabric is very soft out of the package but seems that it will last forever. Fabric has a heavy feel to ... Read Moreit,but wears comfortably. Probably a three season shirt here in NC - likely too warm for summer. Overall,this shirt seems to be destined as one of those life-long lasting 'desert island list' Patagonia products

Solid work shirt

I work as a carpenter in Vermont. Needless to say,I can ruin clothes pretty quickly - so wanted to really test drive this shirt before I left a review. After wearing this shirt to work literally every day for the past 5 weeks (for testing purposes,of course),I'm happy to say that it really does live up to the claims. Fit: The fabric is soft ... Read Moreto the touch,and the shirt is cut comfortably. As winter is winding down and we're entering shoulder season in VT right now (March - April),I have been using the shirt primarily as an outer layer - throwing a jacket on when temps dip below freezing. The weight of the fabric has served me well working in temps from the low 30's to the mid 50's. (bearing in mind that we go sunbathing in VT when the thermometer hits 60.) I'm 5'10 and 185 lbs - I'd give myself an average to moderately fit build. I ordered a medium,and it fits very well. Plenty of room to layer underneath if needed,but works great over a t-shirt,too. There are times that the back of the shirt doesn't have quite enough room across the shoulders (reaching across my body with one hand on a ladder,or when reaching both arms up at about 30 degrees),but this happens infrequently enough that I wouldn't say it impacts moving or working significantly. (after all,it's entirely possible it's just me,as nobody else has mentioned this yet...) I would also join the lobby for a second cuff button - while the shirt fits very well,I found that the cuffs fell a bit lower on my hand than I was comfortable with - especially while using the table saw and some other power tools. Patagonia customer service was kind enough to send me some more buttons upon request,so again - far from a deal breaker. Durability: This shirt really wins here. Since I've had the shirt,I've been framing a garage in the snow,crawling into basement corners,on the ground under my car,hanging and taping sheetrock,carrying lumber,running various saws and large machinery - and the Farrier shirt looks just as good (after a wash,of course) as it did the day I got it. I gotta say - I am impressed by how well this shirt wears. One of the reasons I wanted to wait to write a review is that I have often had the experience of a garment that looks great out of the box,but falls apart quickly in the field. That is definitely not the case here. I feel confident that this shirt will hold up well for a long time to come. Details: -The pencil pocket seemed a bit gimmicky at first,but I have grown to love it. Way more useful than I expected. -The pleated chest pockets are never quite as useful (on any shirt) as I want them to be. Patagonia has done a good job with these. Generously sized,and easy to throw a handful of fasteners into - but the pleats actually make it a bit harder to get the last few screws or nails out of the bottom of the pocket. (again,could just be me - I'm sure this depends on the size of your hands and the size of whatever you're putting in your pocket...) -Everything about the construction of this shirt says quality and durability. In attempting to create a shirt that holds up to the demands of physical labor while still looking and feeling great,the Farrier shirt is a solid winner. Overall: The farrier shirt was my first foray into the workwear line,and I gotta say,Patagonia really nailed it here. This shirt is worth every penny. I liked it enough to order a second one,and am continually getting both compliments on the shirt,and questions about where I got it. If you want a solid,durable,but comfortable shirt - this is it. While I was initially tempted to dock one star for the few minor details I mentioned above,after putting this shirt through it's paces,I have changed my mind. It's earned the 5 stars.

Excellent shirt

Kudos to Patagonia on building a shirt that magically combines a soft feel with a tough as nails disposition. And major added points for finally bringing a 3XL size into the family. After years of shrinking technical and slimmer fits,it's nice to again find a great fitting shirt sized like my older XXL pieces.

One of my favorite all time Patigonia garments.

I had read the good reviews online about the Farrier shirt before I strolled into the Patagonia store in Santa Monica and saw it myself. This shirt has a weight that is heavier than your average Fjord flannel for example. I'm 5-8 and about 195 pounds with an athletic build and a medium fit me perfectly. The shoulders- arm length and overall co... Read Moremfort. After my purchase- I didn't take this shirt off almost my entire vacation. The shirt is heavy enough (almost denim heavy) that it can be used as a light jacket. The shirt is bulky- so be warned. If I was forced to nitpick anything I had issues with it would be that the sleeve doesn't have a second button to adjust at the wrist. I have bought countless Patagonia items over the past 20+ years. Shirts- jeans- socks- jackets- capilene - fleece- down and luggage. The Farrier shirt is in my top 3 Patagonia items of all time. Just bought a second as a matter of fact. Buy this shirt.

Perfect Shirt jacket for work!

I purchased this shirt last season,when it first came out. At 6'1' 172 lbs athletic build,I went with the medium. Product is roomy enough for layers,but fits well. The hemp/polyester blend material is amazing especially with broken in suede-like material. At first,I was concerned that maybe the material was a bit too soft,to my surprise i... Read Moret has held up well from construction work to climbing. With the weight of the shirt,I prefer to use this as a shirt jacket in milder temps 45-65 degrees Fahrenheit. Because of this,my one gripe would be no hand or front lower pockets. I hope Patagonia would incorporate these at some point,so one could throw some nails and screws in their shirt pocket. I will settle for the work apron for now. Another great product from the best in the business!

Great weight,great cut,and super comfortable. I am going to buy the other color as well. I did have to order a size smaller than I normally do.

Excellent shirt

I like this shirt so much I may buy it in the other color. It's incredibly comfortable and durable,and it looks great too,especially tucked in. I'm 5'11" and I bought a Medium. It fits great all around. Sleeve length is perfect and I have no trouble moving around in it. I'm docking one star for the cuffs. There is not a s...

My favorite shirt

I've owned every major brand of work and outdoor shirt. This is by far the best,most comfortable,and most durable work shirt that I've owned. The fit is perfect. I'm 6' 4" 250 lbs. The XXL fits like it was custom tailored for me. It's amazingly soft. The fabric feels great..... no undergarments required. It seems to be... Read More tougher then the other brands including the one that starts with the letter C. The only thing I would change would be 2 buttons on the cuff instead of 1. I'll definitely be buying more when they're back in stock. Some lighter colors in muted earth tones would be nice too! Please don't change the way this fits or the weight and quality of the fabric. You guys got it right with this shirt!

Farrier Shirt is a home-run

I work outside all year around the world as an environmental restoration tech and typically carry what I can fit my life into a vehicle or luggage. That means that I am pretty stoked when I find some work gear that is as versatile and durable as the Farrier shirt seems to be. Fabric is super comfortable while also being able to handle being worn wh... Read Moreile out chainsawing and running heavy machinery in the rain/snow all while not looking totally wrecked at the end of the day..... which is a nice convenience when you rarely get to leave the woods to do laundry. Sizing is fairly large. I am 6' 3" and 195 lbs and even the medium in this shirt fits well. Sleeve length is perfect. Worth every penny to me and I hope to grab some more once the shirt is back in stock.

This is a great shirt..

Perfect fit,great material,comfortable all day.. you got this one right.

Great but Big

Surprised by the claims of true fit. I'm usually a medium but had to return this shirt for a small. It's really an excellent,well-made shirt,but the sizing is very generous.

Another home run

So I haven't worn these for work yet. That's the ultimate plan,but a weekend in northern New Brunswick to do some paddling called and I threw this thing into my bag in case the nights got chilly. I am not disappointed. The fit is completely true and it wears fantastically. I "worked" enough setting up and breaking our camp to ... Read Moretest the build and was not disappointed. It's heavy-ish,but not a burden and wears well right out of the package. The nights did prove cold,even around the fire,and this thing became a warm companion as I sipped my Kitchen Party Pale Ale from Big Spruce Organic brewery. Shameless plug for a buddy of mine,but the pair match so well,considering.
