He added "I have a closet full of fishing shirts, but my 'Hemingway' has become one of my favorites."
The full review:
"The Ocean Blue [Earnest Fisherman] shirt is a classic fishing shirt. It comes in 100% cotton poplin for comfort on the boat, and is stylish enough for post-fishing cocktails. Two button, bellowed pockets expand well, and easily accommodated fly boxes.
"This shirt was clearly designed by fishermen, for fishermen. It has all the features one looks for in a top brand technical shirt. Wood tone button placket, rear hook and loop cape back with polyester mesh for ventilation, utility loop sunshade collar, roll up sleeve tabs and adjustable cuffs on the long sleeve model. This great shirt comes in three colors and a wide size selection (S-3XL).
"I have a closet full of fishing shirts, but [this] has become one of my favorites."
Our classic fit is designed for the man who likes a relaxed fit that allows room to move and layering underneath. If you feel you are between sizes, we would recommend you go with the smaller of the two sizes to try it out.
