Great in pant form and maybe even better as a workshirt. One of our heaviest Italian denims yet manages to highlight Itay's unique take on fabric craft. We add in a serious value to make it hard to pass on. The Italian Heavy Workshirt.
We don't usually think of Italy for big weight denim. We don't see it a lot which makes this one special. This denim also showcases the unique approach Italy takes with fabric - their skill with style and feel. It all comes together perfectly. It starts with a big 15 ounce base weight. Heavy by any standard, Italy infuses its love of softness into this one yielding a hand that's more like a soft leather than starchy cardboard. That makes this big weight denim a bit easier to enjoy in workshirt form. Color is anything but standard. An incredibly deep midnight indigo warp is crossed with a beige-green tinted weft. Long slub yarns create a beautiful visual texture that enhances the color. It's a big weight package done the Italian way.
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 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. They’re a deep navy shade with a slightly domed top and two holes for securing. 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.
