The Modern Melton Wool
Traditionally used to make pea coats for mariners, the dense weave of melton makes it superbly resistant to both water and wind. A meticulously constructed shirt for the inclement weather of the Pacific Northwest, our versatile Modern Melton Wool is a contemporary take on a timeless design—made from warm post-consumer recycled wool, it’s soft, sturdy and naturally insulating, with cozy comfort and breathability for all-day wear. As our wool has already lived a previous life—the source garments are carefully salvaged before being sorted, processed and re-woven—it features a felt-like touch that’s smoother than other wools, and it’s manufactured in a unique, dye-free process that saves water and eliminates the need for harmful chemical dyes. Our most durable and heaviest-weight women’s shirt, the Modern Melton is cut to fit the female form and finished with a drop-in chest pocket, single-button cuffs and a longer scooped hem that falls below the seat. A double yoke rests comfortably across the shoulders and adds additional weather protection, and an inset center-back pleat allows more freedom of motion for days on the go.

Our Modern Melton is cut like a tailored shirt, with patterning that’s narrower through the shoulders and torso with more space through the hip; there’s also a bit of extra room in the arms for layering. To wear as an overcoat, we suggest moving up one size. For further details, see our sizing chart.
Tightly woven wool has microbial and stain-resistant properties. Shirt only needs to be washed once a year (if that). Wash in cold water and hang to dry. To reduce energy and water use, we recommend washing only when necessary. Less washing also gives your garments a longer life.
