Lumberjacks built modern America. Four hundred years ago, when the first settlers arrived in Jamestown, Virginia – a land of “goodly tall trees” – it was man vs nature on an epic scale. Back then there was no radio-controlled machinery, computer-optimised log cutters or health and safety. It was 200 years before somebody invented the chainsaw.

Instead, lumberjacks built the New World’s first settlements by hand. Houses, forts, bridges and churches. And the men who said goodbye to civilisation built a culture of their own – one that celebrated hard labour, bravery, intuition and knowledge of the forest. Admired for their work ethic and physical fitness, they operated like clockwork, extolled the benefits of tackling dangerous tasks, and took pride in the quantity and quality of their work. And they did it all with some axes, saws and shirts.

170 years since it first appeared we’ve taken the lumberjack’s default uniform and rebuilt our own high-performance version, applying modern techniques to its original principles. Part shirt, part jacket the Lumberjacket is a phenomenally hardwearing outer layer that’s built for any adventure in the forest, country or city. It also has somewhere to hang your axe.

We’ve rebuilt the shirt that built modern America.

An iconic shirt was born

In the September 1894 edition of Munsey’s Magazine, one lumberjack explained exactly why a lumberjack’s most important possession was their shirt. “It’s a life fraught with many dangers. Falling trees and rolling logs have caused a long list of deaths; and it is on this account that the woodman’s outer garments are of the brightest colours, blue, green, red, and yellow being the more prominent. The men are thereby able to see one another more distinctly through the thick underbrush, and by a timely warning avert a great many dangers.”
