Yesterday was the 5 Pocket, today you can dress head-to-toe in the Cone IndigoXBlack Feather Denim by adding our Workshirt. A partner to our currently funding Cone Feather Denim, this one retains the finder 2x1 construction while adding in a beautifully rich indigo warp and jet black weft. A great balance of refined and rugged - perfect in workshirt form.
Venturing into color-on-color selvedge denim is something we're familiar with, but this combination remains one of the most stellar. It starts with an absolutely saturated, inky indigo warp. A black weft starts gives the surface an even darker appearance. There is a wonderful formality to this denim that offers you a much different look than traditional color-on-white selvedge. It's great for a slightly dressier look. A fine 2x1 weave and feathery light 6.5 ounce weight means a highly wearable workshirt. The versatility makes the outstanding value we're offering that much better.
There are a number of construction details that define our workshirt. The first is ample triple needle work with a classic chain stitch runoff. Triple needle is a specialized stitch not found on a 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 “runoff” 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 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 work wear 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.
