The Stronghold is known as a purveyor of denim, but here at HQ, we also know the California brand as a supplier of all things smart-casual. So, it didn’t take us by surprise when we caught a glimpse of this The Stronghold check textured overshirt. Made from a fabric with some tactile intrigue that enhances the style’s cosy feeling, this shacket features a classic collar, large button fastenings, two patch pockets on the chest and long sleeves. It’s cut to a relaxed, slightly boxy fit, so you can layer this shirt-jacket hybrid over a selection of other garments (think T-shirts, lightweight knits and more!), while the large check design allows it to stand out. You’ll find a small brand patch by the hem, completing the piece with a much-needed nod to the brand. It goes without saying that you’ll be sporting this overshirt with inky blue denim.
