I read an article last year about a guy hunting in a green plaid wool shirt. Decided I wanted one for casual wear and being outside. Any ideas where to get one? Finding one has been harder than I thought.

Johnson mills May. All wool. Not cheap.

Pendletons have always served me well in the field. I wear a greenish brown solid Trail Shirt regularly in the colder months. Their board shirts also work well. Check out Poshmark for deals.

I have Pendleton, Woolrich, and Asbell wool tops. Asbell doesn't do shirts exactly but they have pullovers, hoodies, jackets, and vests. Their stuff is pretty nice. So are the others I mentioned. For bowhunting I love my Asbell stuff. I have two pullovers. One is a nice drab green.

Second Asbell wool. Quality stuff and different patterns and weights to choose from.

I've worn out a couple of Woolrich flannel wool shirts. But I don't see a green one in their current offerings, and boy howdy, have their prices gone up since I last bought one.

From: Zbone

Personally like the bigger plaid, the 4" buffalo plaid...

Wonder if ole Chuck still wears the same brand of beanie he's wore for eons...8^)

Chuck only wears camo for the photos. He hunts in Sitka and KUIU I hear. That what I heard on the internet at least. Makes sense since you need real camo to be successful.

A wool shirt mid-layer is still bomb for damp weather. In the northeast you still see a lot of guys in that green plaid, I call 'em 'Benoit wannabees' ;-)

I have several of these shirts that are over 25 years old. They're almost impossible to wear out in regular use. Dry clean for sure.

Gary, I didn’t say I like them or use them. I just said they’re almost impossible to wear out. Especially when they hang for many years.

Lots of used wool shirts on ebay - Woolrich, Filson, LL Bean and others. If you are looking at the shirt for hunting deer you may want to consider the red plaid as well as deer can't see red. I've worn my red woolrich for hunting deer quite often.

Be careful buying used wool from ebay. I've gotten good ones and a few that were obviously washed and dried by people who ignored the 'dry clean only' label.

LL Bean Maine Guide is the shirt. Not cheap, but will last forever. Currently on backorder though. It sure looks like that is what Chuck wears.

Personally, I like red plaid. It makes no difference to the deer. However, turkeys are a different matter :-)

I have wool and cotton mid layers. I wear my cotton plaid 80% of the time. But then I live in Texas! It’s December and it was in the 80s this week

You sometimes hear not to wear cotton in the mountains. But that really only applies to your base layer. NEVER wear cotton long Johns. But I routinely wear jeans and a cotton shirt over my base layers. As long as you have rain gear and don’t let your mid layers get wet, you are good.

Another hard and fast rule: NEVER leave your truck in the mountains without rain gear. A beautiful clear morning can build into afternoon showers
