Austin’s own Criquet Shirts released their Club Shirts to the masses, and they are a home run right out of the gate. The shirts are the ultra-soft cotton that Criquet is known for, but with a more traditional contrasting collar and sleeve cuffs. The icing on the cake is the subtle front pocket. I’ve given these shirts quite a few wears, and I absolutely love them. They are cut on the slimmer side, so keep that in mind when ordering.
I have done just about everything in these shirts. I have golfed, fished, grilled, Netflix’ed, chilled, and slept in them. These tend to go well with shorter inseam-ed shorts and sandals. I’m not a huge t-shirt guy, so these are perfect for me. Weekend casual. Perfect.
Beyond my meager field testing, Criquet’s Club Shirts are perfect for:
- Country Club guests who end up shooting a 77 and drinking six Miller Lites per side
- Pledge trainers
- Dads who have no problem Bjorning up
- Guys who know all the words at an Alabama concert
- Frequent wearers of Big Green Egg smoke
From a care perspective, I wash them inside out, then put them in the drier for about five minutes, then lay flat to dry. I’ve ironed and I haven’t ironed…depends on the situation: yes if it’s a more formal occasion, or no a t-shirt replacement. Take care of the collar and these shirt will take care of you.
