Flannel Hits A Whole New Level

All Skill No Luck has taken Flannel to a whole new level; Field and Combat Style Shirts.

Called the NTCHWAIDUMELA and NTCHWAIDUMELA STV (Shed The Vest), they are made from cotton flannel, so no FR properties. But, think of the comfort.


They feature inboard tilted chest and bicep pockets as well as covered buttons, in Red or Ocean color.

    This was a serious consideration for a recent field problem I attended last year – I *almost* took two of my favorite flannels to the tailor to have it done…

    Rediculous and yet brilliant. Like Multicam sneakers I’m not sure where to go. Now if I can get some VN era OG107 cut pajamas I might be swayed.

      New work uniform option.

      Whenever these get back in stock, I’m buying all three colors.

    On Sale price is $90 down from $140. I’d buy one in the $70 range for the novelty but at much more you start to enter the range where you can have your own sewed for less. At the non sale price you could use brand names for your base shirts. I hope they can work on that price some.

      Don’t be cheap, problem solved. It’s a 20 dollar difference. You’re willing to spend 70 but not 90? Lol. Classic ssd response.

      • Rayforest says:

        No, I’m saying that at $90 we are getting in the range where I can get 2 brand name shirts at REI and have my own Combat shirt sewn up locally.

          Okay, time for the Pepsi challenge.

          Do it and send me a write up of what it actually costs and how it works out.

  4. Was literally in the process of writing a message to a custom sewing dude for just the same thing (and some denim combats to match) when this showed up in my feed. Hurried over.. OOS… gutted.

    I feel the omission of the collar on the combat cut is a bit of a mis-step and an option for loop on the sleeves (with blanking plates perhaps) would be awesome. Great colour selection though.

  5. Alex says:

    If it weren’t for the fact that they’ve already been picked over I woulda picked up a Field Top

    I agree with Remf that the combat cut would be better with a Collar since it not only keeps slings & other kit off the neck, but it also gives a little extra structure to the collar itself as t-shirt collars tend to get stretched out by the weight of the sleeves.

    Probably gonna get one of my own made after I draft up some drawings for my seamstress.

  6. CWG says:

    Why advertise something that’s OOS?

  7. Strike-Hold says:

    I want one in Graham clan tartan, to match my combat kilt.

  8. Joe says:

    I see one of these in Garand Thumb’s future!

  9. jon says:

    I really like this, though i could without the bicep pockets honestly, but like the slant style pockets of the old OGs a lot. I think the “combat shirt” type one would be great for camping or when I put on the carhartt vest and get to choppin wood.

    I like the idea and hopefully they come back into stock soon.

    • c says:

      I’d also like these better without the bicep pocket. I’d also like exposed Canadian buttons just for easier wear and repair and to break up the pattern. The slanted pockets are awesome for accessibility (especially if you wear this as a mid-layer). I’d also like to see maybe armpit vents or some abrasion resistant patches (even internally) or something along those lines to really make it a “performance” flannel and not just a meme-tier clothing. As-is it’s really cool but I’d like to see a more “enhanced” version to really make it a useable stand-out piece of gear.

  10. Iheartptbelts says:

    Those field shirts wouldnt be bad for camping/hiking

  11. Erin says:

    Make a Merino version and I will sold.

  12. Nattydreadbushdoc says:

    Merino+Tilt the chest pockets outboard so you can reach in with your vest on.

  13. Bad Dancer says:

    Yes. The Rise of Dadpat is upon us and I am pleased.

  14. some other joe says:

    Does this signal that 5.11 may bring back their basic tactical pant in denim?

  15. Major_Northeast_City says:

    I’ll take one only if it comes with epaulets.

  16. Luke says:

    A pendleton shirt and one of those old surplus 50/50 wool cotton henleys has been on my too-do list to make a hybrid shirt for a long time.

    I think hybrid shirts will eventually make it into mainstream culture, there are already a few workwear and outdoor companies making some. Can’t come soon enough!

    How do I purchase?
