NoBrand – linen shirt for ling hikes
You have chosen a product of the highest quality, designed and manufactured in Bulgaria by mountaineers and mountain guides for own use. The cut is inspired by shirts made for the Bulgarian army in the 1920s and 1930s. It is suitable for daily use as well as for extra long tourist hikes – in conditions with low hygiene and active wearing.
Fine linen fabric contributes to a better regulation of body temperature – in summer the light linen fiber brings a sense of coolness and airiness, while in winter it retains heat close to the body. This is also due to the free cut, which ensures optimal convection of air around the body. Linen absorbs moisture very well and dries quickly. Unlike the popular Merino tops, linen is a breathable and lightweight material that does not lock the sweat inside the fabric and provides coolness even on the hottest days. At the same time, linen is stronger and more durable than cotton fabrics.
For maximum strength and comfort of the product, no overlock stitching was used in any seam of the shirt. Overlock is a rough seam that leaves too many threads open on the surface of the fabric. This creates conditions for skin irritations, makes the product not durable enough, and is not at all aesthetic. Therefore, in our shirt, all the seams are made so that the end of the fabric remains closed in a French seam. This makes the product extremely comfortable, even on a long hikes with a backpack. It is also a bliss for people with sensitive skin.
The cut in the area of the neck and shoulders is designed to be as comfortable as possible. All seams are avoided in the area where the backpack straps are in contact with the shoulders.
The fastening of the shirt is with three buttons. Aside from being functional, for easier dressing and undressing, it is also a design decision. In the hot days, you can wear the shirt unbuttoned to feel more refreshed.
The sleeves are long for protection from the sun and annoying insects 🙂 They are wide and loose, allowing to be rolled up quickly and easily when needed.
The shirt has a functional hood to save your neck from sunburn. The light color of the garment and the hood protect you from direct sunlight. Unlike wearing a hat, the hood is breathable and allows air to flow freely around the neck and head. Besides, the hood cannot be lost and is always there whenever you need it :). The hood can be adjusted with the laces.
The shirt color is the natural color of the linen fiber, which is achieved with the least chemical treatment. This light color absorbs little sunlight, and the natural pattern is versatile – can be easily combined with all other colors.
The cut is loose, comfortable and universal. You can wear your shirt directly on the skin, over a T-shirt, tucked in, untucked or even with a belt. Combine it boldly with all kinds of clothing – from tourist outfit to urban-style clothing.
Clothes made of linen are suitable for multi-day hikes for a number of reasons, but the main thing is that they have unique hygienic qualities – they do not retain bacteria and pollutants. In other words, they don’t get dirty!
Even in conditions of low hygiene and prolonged wearing of linen, the skin of the problematic areas of rubbing responds much better compared to using cotton or synthetic fabrics.
Linen does not produce electrostatic charge, unlike artificial fabrics.
The more you wash it, the more it becomes softer and more pleasant to touch, and the maintenance is extremely easy. No ironing needed – even when wrinkled, the linen stays chic 🙂
NoBrand – clothing for normal people. It is durable and comfortable, with no additional branding, no excess details and no design weirdness. Made with care for people, quality, attention to the detail and love for the environment.
