Särmä Light Wool Check Shirt

Price 169.99 USD excluding sales tax

Checked shirts are awesome and consistently stylish no matter what the current fashion trend might be. When a thick flannel shirt is too much for the weather, choose this lightweight option instead. Oh, we picked 100% wool as the material and added Canadian-style bar buttons and gusseted pits as the final touches.

Checked shirts are awesome and consistently stylish no matter what the current fashion trend might be. When a thick flannel shirt is too much for the weather, choose this lightweight option instead. Oh, we picked 100% wool as the material and added Canadian-style bar buttons and gusseted pits as the final touches.

In the modern days, many garments have become cheap (or not even that cheap) look-alikes of the real thing that used to be made of proper materials. Here's a shot at fixing the problem with a shirt you might choose to wear on special occasions, but if you get accustomed to the higher standard, you'll wear it every day to whatever you do.

  • A lightweight button-down shirt with check squares
  • Fabric: 100% wool
  • The whole shirt weighs just 285 g / 10.1 oz (Size Medium)
  • Made in Lithuania, EU

The cut is classic and the shirt has simple chest pockets with flaps, a stand-up collar, and adjustable sleeve cuffs. In essence, a timeless design fit for work, outdoors, and pleasure, and if you get wet in the rain, this will still keep you warmer than a cotton shirt. We added gussets to the pits to improve mobility without adding any bagginess.

Material and care

The fabric is 100% wool, weighs 180 g/m2 / 5.3 oz, very densely woven with a wee bit of stretch. Wash at 30 degrees Celsius (86 F) with a wool cycle, and hang dry. Usually just brushing off dirt and airing the shirt out is enough. The use of wool care products is recommended but not mandatory.

Sizing

We have listed first the easy size, then the user's recommended measurements: user height/chest circumference. These are fitted with a bit of a slim waist for sharper looks.

In the charts below are the actual measurements of the shirt laid flat: widths at the chest (pit-pit), waist, and hem, back length from the base of the collar to the hem, and sleeve length from the shoulder seam including the cuff.

I got this on January 12th and have worn it everyday until February 6th when I washed it for the first time. Just regular use, no sweaty activities. I think I could have gone longer without washing it because it wasn't smelly. Maybe a quick wash of the armpit regions to remove deodorant residues. If I got some splashes from cooking or whatever, I would just rub the area with water and it would dry extremely fast.

On the first try I found the shirt to be a bit short, but since then I have found the length to be just right (188cm, 84kg, Large Long). The length is just so that it doesn't interfere with disposing your waste liquids while standing (as god intended). Maybe the lowest button could be a bit lower, it currently sits a bit above the belt line. So if you want to make sure that no one can enjoy your navel you have to tie your belt high. I don't mind navel gazers, so it's all good!

At first the material was a bit stiff but loosened up after washing, even became a bit softer. I used a wool detergent with lanolin.

I might start using the shirt for more strenuous activities soon, as I think it would be great for hiking and backpacking.

March 16: so I took the shirt out for a spin a week ago and washed it today. It had endured a day of intense labor in hot and sun-intense conditions. It was rather hard to get out all the salt stains with my gentle wool detergent, but applying detergent directly to the stains worked. I had to use way more detergent than usual though.

It was awesome to be able to open some buttons to increase air flow for ventilation. The shirt's drying right now, I'll let you know how it goes.

April 28: After about a month of regular use without washing the highlight was a 21 mile march for remote military march, temps were high and potential for bugs was high too. I sprayed the shirt with bug spray and it constantly rubbed against my sunscreen soaked skin. Again the shirt held up pretty well.

Hand washing the shirt after such an ordeal was quit laborious, requiring a lot of water, wool detergent and a soft brush. Especially the sunscreen was hard to get out. But once cleaned it's good as new! Ironing this shirt is also quite difficult, especially getting the seam areas flat is no easy task. But having to do this only once a month or less is fine!

Just received mine today, as it got on sale for 20% lol, classic me. Feels and looks great, a bit stiff but it will loosens and softens with use and washing. The fit and construction seems very good while still being light. I'm 175cm tall and about 89cm chest, only the arms seems a bit on the shorter side, but for a more casual/dress shirt instead of active/outdoors this will be perfect. Might get another one while it's on sale... wishing for different colors obviously. Cheers

So I have one of each now and I love them both. I've got Large Regular of each, and with my gorilla arms the sleeves are perfect, but the body could be a touch longer. Large Long is better for me in the body but the sleeves are then too long (I tried that in the shop)... I'm an odd shape though so often end up between sizes, welcome to my world...

What I've found with them is they'll shuck off dust, dirt etc. incredibly well (CEO Jari and I were rolling around in the dust at SRA Hätilä 2023 and it just fell off on its own after a while), won't smell, and will go ages without washing. But when you do wash them, iron them properly while wet then hang to dry, otherwise there'll be chaos. Ask me how I know.... The wool flannel shirts don't need ironing though if you're a lazy sod.

If you're quite sensitive to wool they might prickle a touch on your body; wear a T-Shirt under them in that case (which is what I do, they don't prickle my arms at all). The material of the green is softer and less prickly than the black.

Very comfy. I received this a month or so ago and have been wearing it almost nonstop. It's very light and breathes well.

The fit is great and the cut is slim. I am 5'7" and weigh 140 lbs and got a small/regular and it fits perfectly.

Awesome shirt, great fit and finish. It looks much more sleek than your usual flannel shirt but warmer (and also cool in hot weather I guess, because it’s so thin and breathable).

The only downside is that it’s too short - to get normal length you must choose a longer size. I’m 185/93 and L LONG fits me just perfect.

This shirt is incredibly versatile thanks to the New Wool material. I've found it to breathe well in warmer indoors environments but still retain some heat on cooler late summer nights. This shirt doesn't get as funky as fast so I've found I can let it air at the end of the day and it smells ready to wear again the next day.

The shorter hem of this shirt is ideal for tails out wear. The only thing I didn't like about this shirt, and it might just be because of the natural material -- is that cigarette smoke really clings to this shirt, I found out after being in a smoky bar.

Parasta lekaa. Kun alla merinoteepaita, tätä ei tarvitse pestäkään kuin joskus ja jouluna. Ei ryppyynny missään menossa. Etenkin vihreä väri hieno, suorastaan upea monikäyttöisyydessään, niin arkeen, ampumaradalle kuin metsäänkin. Erittäin eko, eikä tehty Kiinassa. Ainoa miinus on hinta, paidaksi hiiiiirveän kallis, mutta en siitä valita, hinta on oikea, koska olen paidan ostanut. Tuokaa joskus tulevaisuudessa joku muukin väri, niin kaikki eivät enää ihmettele, miksi minulla aina sama paita ; - )

I just got this so I am not reviewing it yet. I got Large Long, I'm 188cm and I would say it is a rather short shirt. still ok but on the shorter side. but so far I love it! Let's see how it holds up to regular use and I'll review it.

Thanks for the warning about it being short: I've compared the size charts for this and for the Sarma wool flannel shirt I already own: according to the size charts, that in Medium Regular size has the same centre back length as this one in Large Long size! I was thinking of ordering this in Large Regular, but am now thinking of buying it in Large Long instead, even though I'm only 1.78m/5'10".

這件襯衫顏色真是極品~超級醜陋
襯衫最重要的尺寸是肩寬+胸寬度+背長+手長度
沒有肩寬…沒有肩寬~我1.8m 104kg 肩寬52cm 襯衫通常都是肩寬不足不能穿
這種羊毛襯衫為何沒有肩寬?這是在開玩笑嗎?The color of this shirt is really superb ~ super ugly
The most important size of the shirt is shoulder width + chest width + back length + hand length
No shoulder width... no shoulder width ~ I am 1.8m 104kg, shoulder width 52cm, shirts are usually not enough shoulder width to wear
Why does this wool shirt have no shoulder width? Is this a joke?

Would you ever make the same shirt in cotton or a more affordable material? I love this shirt and want more but they're too expensive to even have more than 1 .

What is the gsm.? And why not adding some nylon/polyamid as with the thicker version.?

It is 180g/m2. This shirt was made lighter and not intended to be worn crawling and dashing balls deep in mud, so it's 100% wool.

why is this so much more expensive than the regular wool button up?

It's a really light and thin wool, unlike most merino wool I've had. And made in the EU, Lithuania I believe
