One of the finest cottons in the world woven into one of our all-time favorite fabric styles and treated to an intricately constructed Workshirt right in the USA. Special the moment you touch it, these are the Egyptian Giza Moleskin Workshirts.
This is an example of classic style dialed way up through the use of the finest ingredients possible, in this case, cotton. Egyptian Giza is arguably the finest in the world. It's a small subset of Egyptian cotton that is absolutely prized for quality - strength, durability and luscious softness. It gets that much better when woven into a classic, rugged moleskin. When you touch this Workshirt you really get it. The fine yarn, the impossibly smooth feel and suppleness sets this fabric apart. The moleskin weave makes it take on a supple, dense, leathery character. It's just a special thing. The quality enhances the drape and fit, the rich, classic color makes them wearable forever.
Our workshirts are true throwback garments. Inspired by the style's origins of utility and ruggedness. Finding fabric with the right character for this style is key and we have fresh new examples today. Our intricately constructed workshirt gives it the showcase it deserves.
Several construction details define our workshirt. The first is ample triple needlework with a classic chain stitch runoff. Triple needle is a specialized stitch not found on standard button downs and that serves as the heart of any good work shirt. Ours gets triple need flat felled yoke and side seams with chain stitched bottoms. We also allow the side seam chain stitch to “run off” the end giving you three chain stitch ends on each side. We bar tack to ensure the runoff can’t compromise the security of the side seam. The second detail is double chest pockets. We keep ours a bit cleaner, without flaps, but use button closures and double bar tacks in each corner for added strength. The left chest pocket gets the addition of a small pen slot. The third detail is the side hem gussets. It’s a small functional element and looks absolutely great. On our selvedge styles we incorporate the selvedge on the bottom. Finally, we love the chin strap. Ours is small enough to be tasteful while still reminding you of the workwear roots of the garment. We created new custom Corozo buttons specifically for our work shirts. Overall, this is one of our most intricately constructed garments and one of the most costly to produce.
Our workshirts will be available in our Classic and Slim fits. The main differences in details between our workshirts and our other shirting come down to construction - no back box pleat, and differently shaped side scoops. The Slim fit has a more tailored body as compared to our Classic fit. Chest and waist come in to provide a more fitted option. Details are in our fit guide now.
