• This unbleached, organic cotton, Japanese SunRise crew neck sweatshirt is a keeper. The contrast stitching, the simple construction and the panels of darker cotton all add up to a shirt that is masculine, functional and timeless.

The ‘R44’ Rogan Standard Issue line for Nordstrom combines organic cotton with military and work-wear design. The collection is made in America and features this fantastic organic cotton “Uniform Jacket” (now 50% off), and “Echo Defense” organic cotton plaid shirt. Not everything is suitable for animal-defenders (watch out for the leather tabs on the pants as well as some “yak down”) but most of the tops are.
