Levi’s Commuter Work Shirt

Levi's Commuter Work ShirtThe Commuter Work Shirt comes from Levi’s Fall 2013 collection. Although it’s no longer on the Levi’s website, online retailers still a handful of these in circulation, and I imagine the same goes for a few brick and mortar outlets, as well.

Let’s get down to brass tacks—this is a sharp looking shirt. Long sleeves, hidden buttons, zippered chest pocket and technical fabric that doesn’t look like technical fabric. Said fabric is 66% cotton, 31% polyester and 3% spandex with 3XDRY treatment. It’s water-repellent, moisture-wicking and breathable.

The cut of the shirt did not exactly suit me—it’s a lot better suited for people who are truly fit. People like my neighbor Sam (pictured) who’s a certified athletic trainer, road racer and genuinely good guy. After I gave the shirt a few rides, Sam put it through the wringer and came back with positive comments, including that he was surprised at how it didn’t encumber his movements or position on the bike (Levi’s touts gusseted shoulders for improved mobility) and that the fabric felt very appropriate for mild weather (hence its origin in the Fall collection).

The Commuter Work Shirt retails for $88. Check out www.levi.com

    Or buy a Dickies or Red Cap (both being better looking and more durable) work shirt for no more than $20 and tell Levi’s to suck it.
