I told you all that I was going to be looking more closely at wool t-shirts as a travel layer option! And yes, Mission Workshop has a lot of options, including chinos, chore pants, and shorts that don’t feature merino wool. They do have a full collection of wool items. Today, we’re going to focus on the t-shirt, the Mission Workshop Sector: MC.
What is it?
Well, it’s a t-shirt, of course, made from wool that uses a nylon core to make for a robust material. Here’s what Mission says about it:
The Sector : MC is our classic crew constructed with an extra-fine 18.9 micron 190g/sm Australian Merino Wool which is spun around a core of nylon for strength and durability. By its nature, Merino Wool is a highly technical performance fabric. It is breathable, has stretch, resists odors and naturally wicks perspiration away from the body to keep you warm in cold weather and cool during exertion or as the temperatures rise.
Why we think it’s great
Well, with the Mission Workshop Sector: MC, it’s all about that wool. Being extra fine, we’re hopeful that it’s got a smooth, soft (and non-itchy) feel. And being wool, well, you get all that breathability and anti-odor goodness. We also like the colors it comes in – black and a deep brown. That might feel a little limiting, but if you’re looking to have a layer that you’re wearing multiple days, or alternating between two of, those simple colors keep things super flexible for coordinating, and make it not so obvious that you’re wearing that same layer time and again.
How do I get one?
Well, that’s the easy part. If you want a Mission Workshop Sector: MC, just take $100 and get it directly from missionworkshop.com
