Ranger_Crew_Thumbimage/GramicciThe trees are bare and the leaves that hung from the branches are now covering the ground. And the leafy groundcover is not green. It's a multicolored combo of yellows, oranges, browns and reds.

Autumn is in full effect and the coloring of the season is brilliant and the weather brings a brisk feel that smacks you. Don't forget to grab a cozy long sleeve shirt before you run out the door on your next hike or to just visit the grocery store.

Gramicci Ranger Crew

Gramicci has been creating clothing for everyday life since the early 1980's and their environmentally sensitive approach can't be overlooked. Gramicci's environmental commitment is seen in each garments design and even down to the tags on the clothing.

The Gramicci Ranger Crew uses organic and sustainable fabrics and results in a well-constructed and welcoming long sleeve shirt. The shirt can quickly be a favorite for lounging on the couch, running mundane errands and walking the dog on a cool morning.

The Ranger Crew is consists of a hemp and organic cotton and a roomy fit. The Ranger Crew has a fleece lined interior in the back of the shirt. The fleece gives it a comfortable feel. Guys are built leaner on their back, so the fleece lining helps with warmth. The Gramicci Ranger Crew has a suggested retail price of $54.

Hi-Tec Salt CreekHi-Tec Salt Creek Shirtimage/Hi-Tec

For a long-sleeve shirt made for performance, Hi-Tec will bring the Salt Creek Shirt to retailers in Spring 2011. The Hi-Tec Salt Creek Shirt is made from a lightweight nylon that dries quickly and wicks your perspiration away. The shirt has three sizable vents placed in the upper back. The vents also aid with wicking and drying, because it increases air circulation.

What Is Organic Cotton?

Organic Trade Association says...

Organic cotton is grown using methods and materials that have a low impact on the environment.It is grown without the use of toxic and persistent pesticides and synthetic fertilizers. Federal regulations prohibit the use of genetically engineered seed for organic farming.

The Salt Creek Shirt has three pockets – a pair Velcro secured breast pockets and a zippered pocket. The pockets provide room to stash keys, small snacks and a few fishing lures. Button tabs are on each sleeve, so you can roll your sleeves up on an unseasonably warm fall day.

The Hi-Tec Sal Creek Shirt has a silky feel from the nylon material. Its best use is for fall hiking and fishing. You will inevitably wear some water from the creek from casting your line, reeling in a nice-sized trout and cleaning your catch. Wipe the fish gunk from your hands right on the Salt Creek Shirt, because it will come out in the wash. The long sleeve Hi-Tec Salt Creek Shirt will retail for $59.95. Hi-Tec also will offer a short-sleeved version for $54.95.
