WHAT GARMENT ARE YOU FIELD TESTING?
The Cabin Shirt. 

WHAT WAS YOUR FIRST IMPRESSION OF THE GARMENT?
Very soft. A PERFECT length - the cut and curved hem compliments any shape!
The workmanship is impeccable! Well done.

DESCRIBE A TIME WHEN YOU WORE THIS GARMENT OUTSIDE.
HOW DID IT PERFORM?
I've worn it most days on my walks. It's the perfect layer. After a hot yoga class, the walks home can sometimes be fresh - The Cabin Shirt keeps me warm and cozy and content! Have worn it to the beach, and celebrated spring with a fire and fish fry! 

HOW DOES THIS PRODUCT MAKE YOU FEEL? 
I feel swanky and fun! I've received many compliments on The Cabin Shirt - it's unique, not your average flannel. It is practical for "doing outside." I also feel good because it represents a balance between conservation and consumerism. Thanks, Sitka! 

HOW OFTEN HAVE YOU WORN IT?
Hmm, about 20, maybe 22 times. 

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THE FABRIC?
Soooo soft, cozy, and warm!

DID YOU FOLLOW THE WASHING/DRYING INSTRUCTIONS WHEN CLEANING THE GARMENT? IF NOT, HOW DID YOU CLEAN IT?
It's not yet been traditionally laundered! Fresh air usually does the trick - besides it's not stinky yet, and no noticeable dirt or spots ... yet.

DID THE GARMENT CHANGE AFTER USE?
It got subtly softer, with a familiar comfortability. 

DID THE GARMENT MEET YOUR NEEDS?
It's perfect for being out and about!

HOW WOULD YOU IMPROVE THIS PRODUCT? 
Albeit I know nothing of clothing design, I might lower the pockets or just have one pocket (I'm a one pocket kind of gal). The boys at my local coffee shop think there should be an inside secret pocket near the bottom ... I don't agree with them and not even sure how it would look - but I told them I would share their input ... maybe they should switch to decaf!

TELL US A STORY ABOUT YOU IN THIS GARMENT.
Although I am often busy up the wall in all directions - my life is simple. I look for the good, I start where I am, and I use what I have to do what I can. The weekend on the beach (as pictured) was the weekend I said good-bye to my mum. She lived until she was 93! She gifted me love, compassion, and understanding with a never-wavering strength! She lived well - quirky and fun - with cool dance moves (also pictured)!
