Received the shirt in black a couple of weeks ago and have been really pleased with it. It’s quite smart and has a real ‘presence’ - have been wearing it to meetings, a recent funeral, and out on social occasions. It’s also really comfortable and has the feeling of real quality. I ordered an icebreaker shirt at the same time to compare, and ended up sending it back as the Hardvark was a classier more sophisticated offering. As a minimalist and someone who is on the move a lot I have very few items of clothing but like to buy the best I can afford. I suspect the shirt will prove to be value for money if it lasts as long as the quality suggests it will.
Love the feel and fit. I normally have problems with the arms not being long enough, but not on this cut. Would buy again. Quality excellent.
Fantastic Shirt, worthwhile improvements vs previous version
I bought the original version after launch 2 years ago and have worn it regularly since. Love it and it has held up well. My only small gripe was the front placket which was a bit too narrow and sometimes led to gaping between the buttons. Still, I like the shirt so much I just bought another another and the current generation fixes that issue entirely. Delighted. Now we need some plaid versions of the Voyager. A line of lighter weight plain colour formal shirts for business wear would mean I would never have to buy a cotton shirt ever again.
Excellenet - I'll never buy another shirt again if you increase the range
Genuinely great shirts - if Hardvark increase the range of styles I will never buy a normal cotton shirt again... to explain how good these are here's how I wore one the first week...
2.5 hour train journey across London & up north for meetings = no sweating, no creasing, all day meetings then 2.5 hours back to London... Wore again the next day as was still so clean for a 45 minute motorbike commute and again, no sweating, no creasing
Great shirts - only thing I'd call out is the length between buttons, I can't wear top button undone in the office without looking like a play boy
If you made a strong "office" range I will never buy a normal cotton shirt again.
My first purchase......
Great product and I love the material, very happy with my purchase. Perhaps some more versatility on your sizing would be helpful: I bought a large size, which is the right chest measurement, but the sleeves and collar are a little too big for me. Ideally I'd like a large size chest and 15.5" collar/34-35" sleeves, which I can find with other ready to wear shirts. Nevertheless, I am definitely going to buy another.
