Hovden Formal Farm Wear—yeah, that's right, formal farm wear—is headquartered in Portland but its products are rooted in Scandinavia. Inspired by traditional work shorts from Sweden and Denmark, its products are produced in the US and Europe with an emphasis on natural materials and other measures towards sustainability. The basic design itself was rectified in part because of a design for times in which fabric was a limited commodity: The pattern is all squares and rectangles, as opposed to the curved lines of a modern shirt, which helps minimalize the amount of scrap material. A Harmless Project recently made a review video of them, for those who can handle multiple references to "minimal farm chic."
