Ever complained that you don’t have any good work shirts in your closet? Yeah, we sometimes feel the same way. If you want to someday be able to say, “I’m wearing my good shirt” in all honesty, Proof’s The G.O.O.D. Shirt should have you covered.
We mean, it’s literally called “GOOD,” so regardless of your experience wearing it, you’re going to be forced to call it your “good work shirt.” From looking at the product page, however, we’re actually pretty optimistic, because the garment sounds like it’s been made to facilitate a good balance of comfort and function. Suffice to say, it just might actually turn out to be your good work shirt for real.
Proof’s The G.O.O.D. Shirt is actually named after the old idiom, “Get out of Dodge,” a popular catchphrase originally used in Westerns whenever people were told to leave Dodge City, Kansas. We know, what do Western films have to do with a work shirt? According to the outfit, it’s meant to serve as a travel-friendly work shirt – the kind that will wear as comfortably in field sites and workshops as it will during a trip. Basically, it’s the kind of shirt you’ll put on when you need to leave in a jiffy, as it’s equal parts comfortable and function for traveling.
Quite possibly its most notable travel-friendly element are the generous chest pockets. Not only does it have two large flap pockets on the outer chest, it also has a second discreet pocket hiding behind each one. That’s right, you can stash your passport, tickets, and other stuff right on the same shirt, all while being able to keep each one in their own compartments. Those flaps, by the way, come with button snap closures, while the pockets behind them are both zippered, so you can make sure whatever you keep in there don’t end up accidentally falling out.
The G.O.O.D. Shirt has a technical nylon construction that never clings to your body, ensuring it wears well at all times, while the material’s lightweight and breathable properties will keep you cool even on hotter days. They even threw in airflow eyelets under the arm pits, just in case it needs extra reinforcement to keep you cooled down. To make it easy to put on and take off, they used snap closures for both the placket and the cuffs, which should save you a whole lot of time compared to traditional button closures.
Like most work shirts, it comes with a relaxed fit that’s true to size, so you can freely move around, whether you’re operating a machine in the shop, taking measurements on a site, or waiting in long lines at the airport. The relaxed fit means you can wear it on its own during hotter days, as well as layer it over a shirt, making it perfectly wearable through different seasons of the year. It comes in two colors: desert and slate.
