Hammer-shirt-is-at-home-in-the-outdoorsIf you want durable and you want comfortable, consider shirts like the Bushman Hammer Shirt. Rugged durability blends wonderfully with the soft hand of the fabric, making this a terrific shirt for outdoor activities or just lounging around on the deck.

Bushman has been around since 1997, providing clothes for those on safari and those who just love the outdoor life. In addition to clothes, they also offer terrific looking travel bags, rucksacks, belts, hats, scarves and boots.


Pockets of the Hammer shirt are large and spacious without looking bulky. Buttons are large enough to open, even with wet hands. Extra buttons under the collar keep it looking sharp no matter how long you’ve worn it.  


Epaulettes offer the opportunity to grab straps or hold your fishing rod. As you can see from this photo, I use them to tie up the extra-long plug wire from my headphones while videotaping.

Straps on the shoulder can be used to secure a camera or binoculars in place as you go bouncing across the savannah, or jostling through a championship parade – Go Cavs.

Bushman Hammer Shirt with shoulder straps

Suitable for all seasons, the sleeves can be rolled up and secured with internal straps and an external button on the sleeve.

The Hammer shirt is made of 100% cotton twill and finished with a special wash technique resulting in a miraculously soft feel against your skin. Saying it feels like satin is probably a stretch, but it’s about that comfortable without giving up durability.

You’ll want to check out the entire Bushman line of shirts, jackets, pants and accessories for men and women. They are all just as comfortable and yet they all are durable and tear-resistant. Naturally stretchable and breathable, cotton can help you keep warm or cool depending on the weather.
