I stopped by the Atlanta Patagonia store on Saturday looking for a long-sleeve shirt to wear untucked and unbuttoned as a cool-weather concealment garment. The Patagonia Wisco shirt, which is available in both long- and short-sleeve versions, fits the bill better than I thought possible. Like all Patagonia clothes, it’s cut for people with athletic builds, and its timeless design won’t go out of style next season. The shirt is made from thick, soft cotton that won’t print. But now we get to the best part: It uses snaps instead of buttons so you can close one or two if the wind picks up while retaining quick access. One could of course simply rip open a button shirt, but it’s not something that’s easily practiced repeatedly. But practice is no problem with snaps!
