Benson Shirt - Charcoal


Free USA Shipping on orders over $100


Inspired from a 1970s garage shirt that Andrew Note's father wore, the Benson is a truly heavyweight winter layer. This time around, it's sewn up from a substantial brushed Japanese herringbone fabric, perfect for the colder months or for Summer wear when spending time inside a walk-in freezer. 

Fit is slightly boxy, but you can take your usual Freenote size.

  • Custom burnt horn buttons
  • 55% Cotton, 30% Wool, 15% Polyester
  • Made in USA
  • Boxy overshirt fit
