The Eurasian scops owl provides the most characteristic soundtrack of the Trás-os-Montes forests, making itself heard for hours as a "way of celebration" the beginning of Spring. The smallest bird of prey in Portugal is characterized by the small tufts on the head that resemble "ears," and it's a rare species in Portuguese territory; its song can only be heard from March to September.
Inspired by the peculiarities of this very unique animal, we created our first model in cotton corduroy with 16 wales. The number of wales indicates the thickness of the ribbing, so 16 is very thin. It has an outer pocket on the right side and an inner one on the left. Being such an exclusive model, perhaps, like the owl, it will only be around for a few months.
A shirt always looks good, and this classic garment should never be neglected, even when trekking in the woods. Made of soft Portuguese flannel, an iconic material for its durability and comfort, inspired by the freedom of birds, history, and present concerns. This shirt is destined to endure into the future.
"...but our shirts are our liber, or true bark, which cannot be removed without girdling and so destroying the man." Henry David Thoreau.
