Woolrich Elite Four Pocket Discreet Shirt

Please forgive the very low-res photos, but I wanted to show how cool this shirt is. I'll have to make a video when I have more time...Styled after the popular Guayabera (gwai-a-BER-a) and Hawaiian type shirts, this is truly unique among your options for discreet clothing. And, I wish you could feel how soft and comfortable this fabric is.

- 100% cotton for cool, breathable comfort.
- 4 pockets: 2 chest pockets and 2 smaller, lower-front pockets just above the shirt hem.
- Side vent system with hidden hook-and-loop closure.
- The shirt bottom is held neatly in place with hidden magnets behind the lowest false button, but breaks away easily when the hem is swept up and back for access to gear on your waist.
- Breathable, relaxed feel even on the hottest days.
- Single button-through chest pocket, camp collar.
- Easy care: machine wash, tumble dry and cool iron as needed.

Available now in our store, sizes Small - 3XL.

DI is also wearing the Elite Cargo Pant, which is rich with features and deserves it's own blog article...coming soon. Any questions, just contact

Pants N@: Woolrich Elite Tactical Series Pants for Women

What I really like about the Woolrich Elite Tactical Series line is that it looks like "real" clothing. It's stylish and comes in "fashionable" colors, so if you need to blend-in with a crowd, this is the way to go.

Woolrich Elite Tactical Series Pants for Women
I had a chance to test-drive these pants at the Shot Show and I must say they were very comfortable, and I love the features. They have all the pockets of the men's version, which include: 4 flapped pockets, 4 oversized open pockets and 2 back “bag” pockets. Slim, flapped utility pockets on each upper thigh holds a cell phone, wallet, knife, pistol magazine, cuffs or even a 30 round AR-15 magazine. Wide front pocket openings allow the concealed carry of a small frame revolver or auto. Wide belt loops can accommodate a duty belt.

The fit is more of a classic/traditional relaxed fit, where the waistband sits right at the waist and there's plenty of room in the hips. The waistband has generous side elastic panels for all-day comfort and freedom of movement. The fabric is a lightweight but sturdy ripstop, treated with DuPont Teflon® Fabric Protector for a breathable, durable barrier that repels both water and oil-based spills, and it is easy care: machine wash, tumble dry and cool iron as needed.

These pants are available in khaki, womens sizes 4-18, in our store right now. These pants can be hemmed to your desired inseam length. Just contact for more info.

Support for Haiti

We have been following the news on the recent earthquake disaster and our thoughts and hope go out to the people of Haiti and all the rescue and relief personnel being deployed to the area right now. This tragic event will have long-term effects on that area and the world, and there are lots of ways that we can support the recovery effort. Just a few quick links to get you started:
Red Cross

You can text “HAITI” to 90999 to donate $10 to American Red Cross relief for Haiti.

Inquiries concerning U.S. Citizens living or traveling in Haiti should be referred to the U.S. Department of State, Office of Overseas Citizens services, at 1-888-407-4747 or 202-647-5225.

A big shoutout to the Virginia Task Force 1, which is currently on mission in Haiti, pulling survivors from the rubble at this very moment. Also big shoutout to the USNS Comfort, which is essentially a floating hospital, and the USCGC Forward, which was the first large ship to arrive in Port-au-Prince after the disaster and coordinate initial evacuations and assessment of the situation.

When I saw that these were "tactical" socks, I wondered exactly what makes them tactical? Well, while I was out of town on business last week, I test drove the Woolrich Elite X-Static socks and they are awesome! I think what makes anything "tactical" is a combination of good design, performance, and functionality, and these socks had it all. They fit perfectly, and kept me warm and dry, without any bulk. They are also:
  • Antimicrobial.
  • Antistatic.
  • Anti-Odor.
  • The conductive properties of the silver fibers work thermodynamically to regulate foot temperature in warm and cool weather.
  • Padded ball and heel areas.
  • Elastic arch support for increased foot circulation.
  • Smooth lin-toe seam for comfort above the toes.
  • Available in 2 lengths: crew and over-the-calf.
  • Easy care: machine wash, tumble.
  • Made in U.S.A.
They could be worn with dress or casual/work shoes. If I had to choose only one pair of socks for any situation, these would be it. They come in crew and over-the-calf length, and are available for pre-order from
