This is a Viscose/Wool blend, which has kept these shirts durable so far. I have four of them, two in very bright red and blue. The drape is nice enough for casual wear, and the cut is between and active and athletic but runs slightly large by size.
Amazingly, these made-in-the-USA shirts have gotten a softer hand with regular washing (gentle). They feel superb next to skin. I must also say that the colors do not seem to run in the slightest. Colors are still vibrant after countless washes.
The shirt does stretch in length after repeated use for several days without washing and with multiple perspiration wet-throughs. The amount of stretch is not a hinderance, however. A quick, soft run in the drier (despite laundering instructions) bounces the shirt right back to form - but don't let the shirt get hot or you might shrink it too much (can't confirm, just a hunch).
Despite the 50/50 blend of yarns, the shirts do very well at keeping odor at bay after even 3-4 days. Not quite as well as my pure merino layers, but still impressive.
These do not have flatlock seams, but I don't notice them because of the soft hand of the fabric.
