Ready to Rest
The brief for this layer was simple: build the perfect overshirt for runners. We chose a soft and cozy recycled wool, cotton and nylon blend that takes advantage of wool's natural performance properties, with plenty of stretch for movement and all the relaxed comfort you want when the work is done.
Note: the 2022 edition of this overshirt is made from the same recycled wool as our previous editions. However, due to a new process, the yarns are not flattened, resulting in a softer hand feel and a more relaxed fit.
The overshirt features snap buttons on the placket and sleeves that make it easy to pull on and off. Two patch pockets on the chest round out the classic styling, while side hand pockets deliver some storage.

Do Not Tumble Dry
The overshirt is a staple of the New England wardrobe, donned by men and women alike and synonymous with a kind of hard worn, no frills sensibility that defines the region. We’ve always liked wearing it as a pre- or post-workout layer, but wondered if there was an opportunity to do something more. The discovery of this recycled wool, cotton and nylon blend led us to imagine an overshirt that we could put a few miles in - thanks to the odor-resisting properties of wool and durability of nylon. The result is a classically styled overshirt suitable for doing work – on the roads or in the office.
Over grass and earth, through woodlands and open country, we traverse, translating effort to enchantment. It doesn’t require an artist's hand to paint idyllic pictures of the cherished memories of Cross Country. We box it up in clouds of breath, flushed skin, and mud-caked calves pressed tightly against a backdrop of emerald, rust, violet and gold; the thrust of Autumn's grand reveal. For all it invokes, you can’t help but admire cross country’s flair for the dramatic. Inspired by the majesty of the season, our Cross Country Collection features nostalgic styles for running and rest.
