Great shirt, it does run large. Order a size smaller like they have stated.
Normally I wear medium sizes with clothes but these definitely need to be sized down. I purchased small and it fits great. With that aside this is a wonderful shirt!

This is a really good alternative to flannel shirts, with a different weave, look, and feel.

I am 5,6 and have a medium build chest wise 38 ish and I ordered a small.

Nice shirt. Cool design.
This is a great shirt and becoming a favorite among my other Patagonia shirts and casual wear. My only complaint is that even in a size small (my Patagonia size) it fits too long over the torso.

Tough work shirts, but sizing is difficult
I wear these shirts on a weekly basis as a carpenter, and they hold up really well. Flexible but tough fabric, comfortable all day, sleeves rolled up or buttoned down.

While the pros are endless, just two cons worth mentioning: Metal buttons on cuffs will mare finished painted surfaces. And sizing consistency seems off - my green and blue shirts are a full 1.0'-1.5" longer in the sleeve and torso than the "hickory stripe" color, all size small, all washed identically.
Outstanding Work Shirt
Usually, I wear a XL but in the Patagonia Farrier, L is the correct size for me. I WISH these shirts were made as short sleeve shirts too. The Farrier is warm, and has mini pocket places for a pen, and a Streamlight flashlight too. I carry a Covid mask in the left regular pocket and an iPhone Pro in the right regular pocket. The pockets are deep an... Read Mored have button down cover flaps. The Farrier is well made and worth the $100 per shirt they cost.

Super soft and very well made
I originally bought a small, hoping for a fitted look but the shoulders felt a bit snug. I sent it back for a M and Im happy Ill be able to add a layer underneath for hikes and cool weather bike rides. The fabric is heavy duty yet super soft, like light flannel meets linen... glad I finally bought this shirt after eyeing it for a few years.
Good Fabric Bad Fit
I wonder if this would shrink to a reasonable size in the wash but I will return it before finding out. The small was too small and this Medium is way too big in the arms and around the torso. I wonder if the chest pockets puff out after some use? Seems like it could be a problem too. The fabric feels perfect though. Soft and strong. (Usually I wea...

Fit is on the large side, in length especially, but this provides plenty of room and coverage during vigorous work activities.

Works hard, lasts forever
I wear these shirts every day for hard foundry work. They are by far the longest lasting shirts Ive found, with the exception of the buttons. I sew a button back on every once in a while but otherwise Ive been continually impressed.

We're sorry to hear that our size guide was not helpful. The Farrier Shirt is a "relaxed" fit design, and you may prefer our "slim" or "regular" fitting styles. Please don't hesitate to return your purchase to our Patagonia stores or reach out to our Customer Service team for [help](https://www.patagonia.ca/customer-service.html).
Replaced an 80s era Pati canvas work shirt. Had to size up (due to the effects of gravity, age and contemporary sizing) in order to have the same loose fit. Pockets are actually large enough to be useful and the separate pen sleeves are a useful addition. Hope this one lasts a long as the last one!

Not worth it.
These shirts have seam issues. They come undone at the seams as if there was not enough fabric for the stitch to bite into.

A Patagonia Classic: Great Value in a Durable Work Shirt
After pruning, chain sawing, etc for a year in my first one, I just purchased a second Farrier for casual wear, as I consider this a new Patagonia classic (coming from a guy who has three decades experience with Patagonia and three jackets going past two decades). Once it's broken in over pints in the pubs, etc., then it joins me in the yard! ...

Perfect work shirt
I'm 6' 1", 195 lbs and after reading reviews was uncertain if the product ran large on the size. So I ordered 2 (small and medium).

Interesting "hard fabric and vintage feeling design in the striped farrier shirt.
The striped farrier shirt fabric is thick and solid and feels like it's very firmly woven. The other work shirts are softer and drape more easily. The site is very poor at explaining the dramatic differences between the fabrics. I bought the farrier's work shirt, and then later I got another different solid color work shirt and thought ... Read Morethe fabrics would have the same texture. I was seeking that same texture in a different color and was disappointed that the second shirt didn't have the firm, rugged tactile sense of the farrier's shirt. They are so different that they should be far better differentiated on the web site. I was under the impression they would be similar shirts. They are not. I don't want to say the other shirts are inferior. Not at all. They are excellent shirts, but too different to use the same name or be lumped together with the farrier's shirt.

Recommend Sizing Down
I'm 5'11" and 170lbs. Consistently a medium in Patagonia gear, but the small fits me well. Recommend the same advice others have shared, size down if you're looking for a more tailored fit. Great piece, comfortable and warm, and chest pockets have ample space. Can easily fit a large mobile phone (Galaxy S10) with room to spare.
DO NOT SIZE UP
I should not listen to most of the reviews here about go down a size or two. WRONG. If you are a decent size person not having chopstick arms and flat chest, stick with your true size. I wear large and go down to Medium because of most reviews whining about how this shirt so big. I cannot even button my chest and sleeve has zero room to move.
Hi Minseok. We're really sorry that this actually ended up being too tight. Please feel free to return it for a refund and purchase a size up if you'd like. We're also always happy to email you any item's measurements chart so you can feel more confident about your next purchase.
My new favorite shirt
I bought this shirt several months ago and immediately realized it was one of the best shirts I have ever owned. It is well-made, sturdy, fits well, and looks great. After wearing the first one for several months I bought a second in a different color. These will last for years and hold up to rough use.
My go-to shirt for work
Working in a ski and bike shop, our clothes tend to take a beating. For years I worked in the Fjord flannels, but they were sometimes too warm. The Farrier doesn't run as hot, looks good and has become my favorite shirt Patagonia makes. Own 3 and will absolutely buy a few more.
Most pleased with this purchase. Long been a fan of hemp back to the very first clothing items Patagonia offered using it. ’96 or so? Always preferred natural fabrics: 100% hemp, org cotton, linen, wool and or blends of these. Stopped by the Portland store more expressly to try this. Felt the notably substantial yet still surprisingly soft material... Read More and found myself directly rethinking things. Actual garments measurements of the size M purchased ~~> 23” pit to pit, 19” shoulder seam to shoulder seam and 25” from the shoulder seam to the end of cuff. As I happen to have longer arms the fit’s correct and satisfying for this frame. Full latitude to layer underneath or not depending on the temp and how hard I happen to expect to be working. Showing the greatest of care I was able to remove the more prominent branding and not damage the shirt in the least. The ‘ink black’ I find more of a dark grey or charcoal. Now I’m seeing the dark ash or alder green, one of these coming toward me.
Comfortable, heavy, strong, but large
I'm 5'10", 155lbs. I usually pivot between size S and M in shirts of this nature, but usually size S in Patagonia. They are just within the limits of not being too small. But this shirt ran very large. It's easily a Medium+ in size compared to any other button down shirt in my closet, be they Patagonia or not. I love the fabric... Read More.

This shirt rates up there with my best/favorite shirts ive collected over the years, a plurality of which are Patagonia which never seem to wear out.

Heavy duty construction without feeling like canvas. Has a soft touch but still seems like it will be indestructible. Folks, they are not kidding when they say it is a roomy fit.

Got this for my husband as a gift and he loves it - wore it right away. It seems to run a bit larger than the Fjord Flannel as the M was a perfect fit for him in this one but a little tight in the Fjord (5'11", 190ish). Looks great on, nice heavy fabric, seems like it'll last a long time!!

I'm not some kid trying to show the world my brand name swag.

I have a 36" waist and my guess is this shirt could accommodate a 46" waist. this roominess makes the shirt extremely comfortable, but a little on the baggy side.
Wish it was Fire Resistant

Overall, these shirts do better in a kitchen than any chef coat Ive used. Plus. they feel really nice too. Overall, I would say if you want to try out hemp as a material, or if you work in a hard environment, Id recommend these. They also are not a bad winter/autumn shirt either. ONE thing to note though. I bought the striped shirt and it seems like it was built differently than my plain black shirt. The striped shirt feels thicker than my black one, I believe they had to make it thicker because the design of the stripes themselves make the shirt thicker. I prefer my black one which is thinner, because it provides more mobility. The thicker stripped one does provide more protection and warmth though. Just something to keep in mind if you want the STRIPED one.

Shirt fits perfectly on my 6'9' big frame leaving plenty of room to bend,move,reach etc. Long length in body and long sleeve length was as expected per sizing chart. Excellent! The fabric is very soft out of the package but seems that it will last forever. Fabric has a heavy feel to ... Read Moreit,but wears comfortably. Probably a three season shirt here in NC - likely too warm for summer. Overall,this shirt seems to be destined as one of those life-long lasting 'desert island list' Patagonia products
Solid work shirt
I work as a carpenter in Vermont. Needless to say,I can ruin clothes pretty quickly - so wanted to really test drive this shirt before I left a review. After wearing this shirt to work literally every day for the past 5 weeks (for testing purposes,of course),I'm happy to say that it really does live up to the claims. Fit: The fabric is soft ... Read Moreto the touch,and the shirt is cut comfortably. As winter is winding down and we're entering shoulder season in VT right now (March - April),I have been using the shirt primarily as an outer layer - throwing a jacket on when temps dip below freezing. The weight of the fabric has served me well working in temps from the low 30's to the mid 50's. (bearing in mind that we go sunbathing in VT when the thermometer hits 60.) I'm 5'10 and 185 lbs - I'd give myself an average to moderately fit build. I ordered a medium,and it fits very well. Plenty of room to layer underneath if needed,but works great over a t-shirt,too. There are times that the back of the shirt doesn't have quite enough room across the shoulders (reaching across my body with one hand on a ladder,or when reaching both arms up at about 30 degrees),but this happens infrequently enough that I wouldn't say it impacts moving or working significantly. (after all,it's entirely possible it's just me,as nobody else has mentioned this yet...) I would also join the lobby for a second cuff button - while the shirt fits very well,I found that the cuffs fell a bit lower on my hand than I was comfortable with - especially while using the table saw and some other power tools. Patagonia customer service was kind enough to send me some more buttons upon request,so again - far from a deal breaker. Durability: This shirt really wins here. Since I've had the shirt,I've been framing a garage in the snow,crawling into basement corners,on the ground under my car,hanging and taping sheetrock,carrying lumber,running various saws and large machinery - and the Farrier shirt looks just as good (after a wash,of course) as it did the day I got it. I gotta say - I am impressed by how well this shirt wears. One of the reasons I wanted to wait to write a review is that I have often had the experience of a garment that looks great out of the box,but falls apart quickly in the field. That is definitely not the case here. I feel confident that this shirt will hold up well for a long time to come. Details: -The pencil pocket seemed a bit gimmicky at first,but I have grown to love it. Way more useful than I expected. -The pleated chest pockets are never quite as useful (on any shirt) as I want them to be. Patagonia has done a good job with these. Generously sized,and easy to throw a handful of fasteners into - but the pleats actually make it a bit harder to get the last few screws or nails out of the bottom of the pocket. (again,could just be me - I'm sure this depends on the size of your hands and the size of whatever you're putting in your pocket...) -Everything about the construction of this shirt says quality and durability. In attempting to create a shirt that holds up to the demands of physical labor while still looking and feeling great,the Farrier shirt is a solid winner. Overall: The farrier shirt was my first foray into the workwear line,and I gotta say,Patagonia really nailed it here. This shirt is worth every penny. I liked it enough to order a second one,and am continually getting both compliments on the shirt,and questions about where I got it. If you want a solid,durable,but comfortable shirt - this is it. While I was initially tempted to dock one star for the few minor details I mentioned above,after putting this shirt through it's paces,I have changed my mind. It's earned the 5 stars.
Kudos to Patagonia on building a shirt that magically combines a soft feel with a tough as nails disposition. And major added points for finally bringing a 3XL size into the family. After years of shrinking technical and slimmer fits,it's nice to again find a great fitting shirt sized like my older XXL pieces.
One of my favorite all time Patigonia garments.
I had read the good reviews online about the Farrier shirt before I strolled into the Patagonia store in Santa Monica and saw it myself. This shirt has a weight that is heavier than your average Fjord flannel for example. I'm 5-8 and about 195 pounds with an athletic build and a medium fit me perfectly. The shoulders- arm length and overall co... Read Moremfort. After my purchase- I didn't take this shirt off almost my entire vacation. The shirt is heavy enough (almost denim heavy) that it can be used as a light jacket. The shirt is bulky- so be warned. If I was forced to nitpick anything I had issues with it would be that the sleeve doesn't have a second button to adjust at the wrist. I have bought countless Patagonia items over the past 20+ years. Shirts- jeans- socks- jackets- capilene - fleece- down and luggage. The Farrier shirt is in my top 3 Patagonia items of all time. Just bought a second as a matter of fact. Buy this shirt.
Perfect Shirt jacket for work!
I purchased this shirt last season,when it first came out. At 6'1' 172 lbs athletic build,I went with the medium. Product is roomy enough for layers,but fits well. The hemp/polyester blend material is amazing especially with broken in suede-like material. At first,I was concerned that maybe the material was a bit too soft,to my surprise i... Read Moret has held up well from construction work to climbing. With the weight of the shirt,I prefer to use this as a shirt jacket in milder temps 45-65 degrees Fahrenheit. Because of this,my one gripe would be no hand or front lower pockets. I hope Patagonia would incorporate these at some point,so one could throw some nails and screws in their shirt pocket. I will settle for the work apron for now. Another great product from the best in the business!
I like this shirt so much I may buy it in the other color. It's incredibly comfortable and durable,and it looks great too,especially tucked in. I'm 5'11" and I bought a Medium. It fits great all around. Sleeve length is perfect and I have no trouble moving around in it. I'm docking one star for the cuffs. There is not a s... Read Moreecond level of adjustment to make the cuff tighter. Sometimes it's nice to tighten up to keep dirt,dust,sawdust,etc from falling down the sleeves. I'm considering adding a second button.
My favorite shirt
I've owned every major brand of work and outdoor shirt. This is by far the best,most comfortable,and most durable work shirt that I've owned. The fit is perfect. I'm 6' 4" 250 lbs. The XXL fits like it was custom tailored for me. It's amazingly soft. The fabric feels great..... no undergarments required. It seems to be... Read More tougher then the other brands including the one that starts with the letter C. The only thing I would change would be 2 buttons on the cuff instead of 1. I'll definitely be buying more when they're back in stock. Some lighter colors in muted earth tones would be nice too! Please don't change the way this fits or the weight and quality of the fabric. You guys got it right with this shirt!
Farrier Shirt is a home-run
I work outside all year around the world as an environmental restoration tech and typically carry what I can fit my life into a vehicle or luggage. That means that I am pretty stoked when I find some work gear that is as versatile and durable as the Farrier shirt seems to be. Fabric is super comfortable while also being able to handle being worn wh... Read Moreile out chainsawing and running heavy machinery in the rain/snow all while not looking totally wrecked at the end of the day..... which is a nice convenience when you rarely get to leave the woods to do laundry. Sizing is fairly large. I am 6' 3" and 195 lbs and even the medium in this shirt fits well. Sleeve length is perfect. Worth every penny to me and I hope to grab some more once the shirt is back in stock.
Another home run
So I haven't worn these for work yet. That's the ultimate plan,but a weekend in northern New Brunswick to do some paddling called and I threw this thing into my bag in case the nights got chilly. I am not disappointed. The fit is completely true and it wears fantastically. I "worked" enough setting up and breaking our camp to ... Read Moretest the build and was not disappointed. It's heavy-ish,but not a burden and wears well right out of the package. The nights did prove cold,even around the fire,and this thing became a warm companion as I sipped my Kitchen Party Pale Ale from Big Spruce Organic brewery. Shameless plug for a buddy of mine,but the pair match so well,considering.
