It can be hard to find a fishing shirt that can serve double duty as casual wear. I recently picked up the new Alto series short sleeve shirt from AFTCO. I immediately noticed the unique texture of the shirt, it’s a Heathered Polyester, while soft to the touch holds it shape well and doesn’t wrinkle easily.
The shirt fits pretty true to size, running slightly on the large size. If are normally a large, the large Alto should be a very comfortable fit. The shirt features rear venting to keep you cool on and off the water. A front zipper pocket offers enough storage space for glasses or a cell phone, but doesn’t add any bulk or noticeable imprint on the shirt. I really like this feature, it keeps the shirt looking sharp and fitted, perfect for casual wear off the water.
The fabric is quite comfortable and has a slight linen feel too it. I really like the fact that it resists wrinkling fairly well. The fabric also offers great protection with 98% UV blockage.
Overall, I’m very happy with the Alto Series Short Sleeve from AFTCO. Simple, clean lines and comfortable fabric offer a style and fit perfect for casual wear on and off the water.
