The original color, Heather Lieutenant (very close to ODG) has been discontinued by American Apparel. Starting with size XL, the color will be the new Heather Forest, it's a darker forest green. Other colors will eventually go to Heather Forest as well.

For years, we resisted making T shirts. Not that they're not practical, but because we don't like going down the well trodden path, and T shirts...everyone does and has done them. Coupled with our constant new projects and product development, we were hard pressed to find time to embark on a peripheral project.
For 2021, we decided to at least do a short run of shirts to make our friends in the pond happy. The shirts we chose are made in the USA (American Apparel) in heather green, 50/50 cotton and polyester blend, these are soft and well made shirts with a small (2" wide) logo on the left chest. Available in M, L, XL, and XXL.
The attention to detail for which we're known comes into play in everything we do, the duck shirts are no exception. We poured over material, construction, softness/comfort, durability, fit and finish, before deciding on a manufacturer, blend and color. As always, nothing is by accident, everything has a reason. The FCD Cygnus logo is tastefully modest and discreet so as not to make the wearer a walking billboard, the back is without any logo or adornment, our Elegant Simplicity design language comes easily and naturally to the shirt.
The heather green color is a neutral color that goes well with most other colors, especially earth tone colors. We deem fashion inappropriate on combat weapons, but it doesn't mean we don't know fashion ;)
For 2022, the duck shirt is available in Heather Gray with ice grey (light grey) Cygnus logo.
