There’s the moment when you get a new piece of clothing. You know, that moment when you get a little buzz from the purchase. Then there’s the moment when you get a new piece of clothing like the Mission Knit Long Sleeve Shirt from Royal Robbins. A top so soft and comfortable that all sorts of neurons start firing.
That’s what happened for me when this top arrived. And then I wished for a cool front to come in so I could start wearing the shirt as soon as possible.
Like a new pair of fuzzy socks, this is a shirt that’s so comfortable you don’t even know you’re wearing it. Though the material is thin, it’s just that cozy.
The acrylic/rayon/wool blend is an alternative to Merino wool with the same warmth. It’s also wrinkle resistant, which means this will get packed into my luggage on my next cool weather trip.
I love the asymmetrical crew neck (it’s difficult to see it in this photo) and the diagonal seam in the front. Though this is considered a tunic, I found that it doesn’t come down as far as you might think based on this photo. In other words, it’s not something you’d necessarily wear with a pair of leggings.
This is available in Charcoal (pictured above), Cosmic Blue and Merlot.
