Vintage Blanket Shirts

Outerknown Drops Its Extra-Cozy 'Blanket Shirt' in Time for Fall

— September 26, 2022 — Fashion
Menswear label Outerknown has released an extra-cozy fall-time piece called the 'Blanket Shirt.' As its name suggests, the new button-up shirt is made from heavy-weight organic cotton that mimics the feel and warmth of an extra-soft blanket.

Though this piece has obvious utility -- i.e., it will keep you warm as the weather starts to cool off -- it also boasts a stylish cut and features a distinctly vintage vibe. As a result, the new shirt should appeal to those with retro-leaning styles. What's more, the Blanket Shirt is a highly sustainable piece that is made without the use of synthetic materials.

For those interested, the Blanket SHirt is now available to purchase on Outerknown's website as well as at select retailers in the United States.
