In a lifetime of shirts, these stand out
My wife bought me four of these a few years ago. I thought she was being extravagant. She was not. These are my favorite shirts. I wear them all the time and after countless washings, the color and texture don't seem to have changed much. The thick rich fabric is warm, substantial. They actually make me look forward to late October and miss early April here in New England.
Typical TA Shirt
As usual, TA shirts don't fit me well. The smalls are too small & the mediums are too long to be worn untucked. As another review said, this shirt is cumbersome to tuck in. And as I have not worn mine too much I can't speak on how well they hold up. If only it fit me better I might wear it more. But quality seems OK, the buttons haven't fallen off yet like other TA shirts.
I bought a couple of these shirts. I really like them. They are warm and very comfortable. They hang well and feel like they will last a long time. I hope there will be a new range of colors next season so I can supplement my wardrobe with more of these shirts!
Love the shirt but I ordered him "wrought-iron" which appears in picture to be a sort of charcoal grey. In reality it is several shades darker. It's BLACK.

Bought a tall, while the shirt length is fine the sleeves were too short...very sad because the shirt is beautiful.
These shirts are some of my husband's favorites
These corduroy shirts are some of my husband's favorites, and he looks GREAT in them. The ones I have ordered for him have lasted wash after wash; I was surprised by one reviewer's comments about not being well made. I would recommend getting them, and they look really great on men who have broad shoulders like my husband does.
Next to a couple old wool shirts that finally wore out at the elbows, the three Crisscross Cord shirts are my wardrobe favorites. Soft, warm, and they fit as well as they did the day I bought them - no shrinkage what-so-ever! Love them.
Definitely Unique: and Handsome
As other reviewers have noted, definitely a unique shirt: never before seen fabric quite like it. I got the blue-grey chambray, very nice. Shirt is heavy, almost a shirt-jac. Cozy and comfy.
My Favorite TA Shirt
I own three of these shirts. Need I say more?
Great Texture, Rich Color, BUT . . .
The Crisscross Cord and I really get along, with two notable exceptions: 1) it's a bit heavier-weigh than I expected; I find it bulky and cumbersome to tuck inside pants and 2) I find the tail and too long and balloon-ish to wear outside. By the way, this is one enduring issues I have with TA: so many of your shirts that I think would look good worn untucked are designed with tails that, in my opinion, don't look especially complimentary when worn untucked. Otherwise this shirt is a welcome addition to the Fall/Winter wardrobe.
Buttons fall off.
I have worn this shirt 8-10 times and now the buttons are hanging off. Poor quality of stitching!
Ordered 2 of these and hardly ever wear them. The corduroy is very thick. The collar doesn't set well-- it tends to curl up. Can't recommend it. I should have returned them, but have washed them a few times.
I finally came around
After seeing this shirt numerous times while surfing The Territory Ahead website and re-reading the reviews I decided to get two of the shirts the Blue Gray and Barn Red. I was pleasantly surprised I really like these shirts! Sad thing is I bought them as the weather here in the Reno area was getting warmer they are better suited for fall or early spring. Can't wait to wear them then!
not a tall
Very disappointing because the shirt was really nice, but the sleeves were definitely not a tall, they were very short. Otherwise really nice shirt- but I returned it.
He likes it!
My guy is VERY picky when it comes to shirts. He's long and tall, and the XXL Tall fits him beautifully. I love the color, fabric and texture of this shirt. He's worn it a lot already - it's a hit!
comfortable rugged shirt
My 24 year old son loves this shirt. It's comfortable, washes well, and is unique. He now has several TTA shirts and says he always gets compliments when he wears them.
Love these shirts
I was so pleased with these shirts I bought 4. They wear well, perfect weight for fall and winter days.
Really Great Shirt!!
This is a really great shirt!! The colors are true to the advertised color; the texture is soft, but sturdy; the fit is true. Both my husband and I are really happy with the purchase. He te4lls me that it is really comfortable. I got two colors, and may go back for more. I have gotten shirts for him from several of the higher-end catalogs in the past, but this is my best buy yet! Oh yes, they wash great!
This shirt is incredible! I got it for my husband in every color and it's his favorite shirt as well. It has that comfy, worn outdoorsy look to it...it just looks so soft that you want to reach out and touch it. I highly recommend this shirt! Also, the colors are great and it's a quality, great fitting shirt. Thumbs up!
Scored Points With This One
He'd thought he had enough shirts, until I gave him this for Valentine's. ""Comfortable and comforting,"" says he. ""Rich-looking and appealing to touch,"" say I. ""When they ask you where it came from, say Territory Ahead."" ""All right,"" says he, ""but they can't have THIS one!""

Great, comfortable shirt
I always wait until I've worn and washed an item a couple times before I'm ready to pass judgment on it. I've done that with this shirt, and it passed with flying (but not fading) colors; now I have three of them in different colors. They wash up well, hold their color and don't shrink; they also don't wrinkle if you follow the washing instructions and get them out of the dryer right away. The fabric is a good weight, so I can wear it as an overshirt with a tee or with another layer or tuck it in when I don't want to be quite as casual. Overall, a good shirt, especially at the sale prices.
My husband loves this shirt. This is his second one. The fabric is lush and substantial, drapes beautifully and continues to look good after repeated laundering.
Substantial and Unique
More and more I look for clothing that is simple, yet not seen on every guy around town. This shirt is unique, thick and very high quality. I'm comfortable paying a little more for any garment with those characteristics.
San Francisco, CA
Love These Shirts!!
I have two of these and they are the best shirts ever!! They hold up to washing and are soooo comfortable! I want to get one in red too.
Great look & feel
Nice fabric and workmanship make for a great look and a long lasting shirt. My only complaint is the sleeves are not long enough even on the tall sizes. I think customers would be more tolerant of sleeves that are too long rather too short so why not make them longer?
Now THIS is a Great Shirt!
Great fit, very comfortable middle-weight, good quality, bought the grey/blue which is really a deep blue and then liked it so much got the barn red, which is really more a rich deep red. When I wear these people keep coming up and touching the shirt thinking it is velvet or some rich fabric!
Wonderful as usual.
I love to give my husband shirts from Territory Ahead for Christmas, Birthday, and any other good reason I can think of. The quality is alway superior. The shirts retain their look years later. This one is especially warm and soft. He likes to wear it over a t-shirt almost like a light jacket. I love the feel of it.
A quality shirt for New England weather
This is my second Crisscross and it didn't disappoint. The weight is perfect in that it is warm without the bulk of many cord shirts. Quality construction and materials as expected from TTA and the color choices are great.
I bought this shirt for my husband for Christmas and he loves it. It is a very well made, high quality shirt with style. Great for layering and winter wear.

A Christmas gift for my husband, looks good on him
Bryson City, NC
I bought 2 different colors of this shirt for my husband. The plum is elegant! The texture created by the cross-cut cord is interesting and gives a different look (shades and shadows change with movement). The tall size is perfect for a 6'3"" build - arms are long enough! TA is a favorite at our house.
The perfect blue jean topper
I loved this shirt-jac the minute I opened the shipping box from Territory Ahead. The colors were amazing and vibrant yet subtle and sophisticated. The feel and fit of this item will make it something that I will want to wear for years to come.

I'm Not Shy
You do not have to be an extrovert to wear this shirt! While it is a unique take on corduroy, it is not over-the-top. The shirt is a bit on the heavy-weight side for my location (North Florida), but on those few days when it does get cold here this shirt is a nice option for casual wear. I have two of them in different colors. The colors stay true after washing. I wash on gentle cycle and hang-dry mine. In my experience, TTA shirts usually have long(er) sleeves. The sleeves on the regular Crisscross seem to be a bit shorter and more narrow than usual. It may annoy you if you have long or thick arms.
Nice soft shirt
Bought 3 for my husband and he likes the softness and says they are very comfortable. The colors are bright but not too bold.
Can't go wrong for the $$
Purchased these as Christmas gifts for all of the ""boys"" in my family. From 18 to 90 years old, this was the perfect gift! All of the men loved the fit, colors, & quality of material. Purchased small to XL & all were true to size.
Crisscross cords keep you warm
Love these cords. Have two of them and they keep me warm on these cold winter days. Soft and easy to take care of. Buttons should be sown on better though.
Great shirt-Get the set
I first bought this shirt several years ago. It quickly became my fav winter shirt. It's very comfortable and wears well. Might be the colors or maybe the cut of the material but you need to get used to people wanting to touch it. No problem- as long as they ask permisssion first. I ended up buying one of each color. GREAT shift
I don't often buy from Territory Ahead because the prices are a bit high for me. But every once in a while, I find something that will be a centerpiece for my wardrobe. The Crisscross Cord shirt is not just a cord shirt but so much more distinctive. It's definitely worth the extra bucks. I am completely satisfied and pleased.
Very nice shirt
I got this for my husband for Christmas. It is a very soft shirt, and he likes it a lot. I think that the color, a golden color, is beautiful.
Don't miss out on this one!
The most incredible feel to a long sleeved shirt that I have ever felt!
Lees Summit Mo.
Purchased 2 of these on sale for my husband who is thin but has very long arms. He has worn flannel shirts in winter for decades, I've been trying to transition him to corduroy and chamois which look more professional for work. The fit is good, not too baggy. The unique fabric is soft. The blue-gray color is more of a deep ocean. The ivy (which is not available as I write this) is very dark - from afar it looks almost black or deep brown, depending on the light. Even with all the good points, regular price for this shirt is a bit high for a shirt to wear for work. I know that on his own, my husband would never have paid even the sale price. I'm willing to pay a bit more for better style.
Crisscross Cord Shirt - Tall
What an awesome shirt! I needed a nice shirt for our 2011 Christmas Party, and this shirt was definitely a winner. My wife and our friends really liked my shirt. The shirt is comfortable and you can just wash and wear it with no wrinkles. I highly recommend this shirt to anyone whose looking for a good looking quality shirt! Sincerely: Dan Minot ND
Perfect Winter Shirt
Good looking, well-made in quality fabric, cozy, and a great fit.
Bet ya can't buy just one!
I bought myself one in Gray Chambray for Christ Mass and I knew it'd be my favorite shirt for quite some time. To make sure; I ordered a second for when this one is shreaded. It's actually a beautiful Montana Sky Blue, perfect in every way. A gal came in my Saloon and comented on it's awesomeness saying, my girl friend must love me. Ha It was just me.
I bought this shirt for my husband for Christmas this year. It arrived quickly and is even better than I expected. The workmanship is excellent as this shirt is very well made. I love the thick material and how it feels and it looks so good on him. This is the second purchase I have made and I know i'll be making more. I'm thoroughly satisfied with the quality of both items.
The most wonderful shirt for my wonderful husband!
I bought this shirt in 8 different colors for my husband. I never get tired of seeing him in this beautiful shirt because it looks totally different on him in every different color. It pops in and out of the washing machine and dryer and straight onto a hanger and back into his clothing closet. No ironing - it looks perfect. He has many other shirts but he never bothers to reach for them when he can have this Crisscross Corduroy Shirt. You will not be disappointed! I wasn't. Hope they never discontinue this shirt because it is top notch and a sure winner!
Dix Hills, New York
Warm and Substantial
Unique shirt that is a perfect fit and very comfy. A thick shirt with a nice nap, it makes a great winter shirt. You're able to wear this one right from the dryer.
South Coast Massachusetts
cord men's shirt
this shirt runs VERY large. Ordered an XXLT which is the normal size for my husband and it was HUGE. The shirt is beautiful - too bad they ran out of smaller sizes - i can see why they did
Work and Plan favorite
This shirt is way comfortable. Have worn it treking in the Mazatzals and Superstitions in AZ. Great for casual wear too. The only cord shirt that I consistently receive compliments on. Thanks TA!
Chicago & Arizona
Fit for a retiree
This is the first corduroy shirt I have bought in years. The previous ones were rough and stiff, but not the crisscross cord. Being retired I favor the casual look. This is a great shirt to wear untucked over a tee or a mock turtle. I'm 6 ft. 190 lbs and the lg tall size fits my longer arms perfectly. I crave the cord !
Bought the Barn Red
Very well made and I'm sure will last a long time. Runs slightly larger than the Hi-Lo Corduroy Shirt.
Got this one during the latest TA sale and it is a winner. The first time I wore it I received three compliments - two of the three people actually had to touch it. This shirt goes with both khakis and jeans and looks terrific.
I bought this shirt as a gift for my brother in law who is very tall. It fits him perfect, the color, plum, is really nice and most importantly he loves is. Great value when on sale.
I love this shirt!
I bought 8 of these shirts in two seperate orders in 8 different colors. XL tall fits perfectly. Nice, heavy shirt with a long tail. Very distinctive look and I receive compliments every time I wear one. Will probably order duplicates in case these ever wear out!!
Best Purchase Ever
I bought this shirt a second time for my husband. The first one is olive and he absolutely loves it. The second one I bought for him this past Christmas was Barn Red. He said it was his favorite gift!!!!! They are beautiful shirts, wear well, fit perfect and look gorgeous!
Grand Rapids, Mi.
A new favorite!
This is my husband's new favorite shirt for cooler weather. I got him one in October for his birthday and he immediately started wearing it so I got him another one in a different color for Christmas. He loves the soft feel of the corduroy and the easy fit. They wash and dry beautifully, too.
Poor craftsmanship, shoddy quality
The shirt fits, and colors are great. The quality is poor. Every button is falling off, one came off on the second day. For such boutiquey pricing and image, the workmanship should be better. And priniting a disclaimer that I have the opportunity to waste my time to mail it back is an insult, but an acknowledgement that accept the status quo.
I have to say, this is certainly one of the nicest shirts I've ever purchased: Comfortable, sturdy, good looking...I'm very happy with this shirt!
Detail and style
This is a great winter shirt...cozy with elegant styling. Fits perfect and everyone asks me where I got it. Wearing it right now....very comfortable.
Santa Fe, NM
Bought this shirt for my son-in-law for Christmas. He loves the fit of the shirt and feel of the material. I like the design in the fabric which I think adds a certain richness to the shirt.
Compliments every time I wear it
I love this shirt. Very comfortable and great looking. It's unique and that's why I love The Territory Ahead clothes. Great with a pair of jeans on a cool day or night out.
