All new workshirts in a truly rare fabrication - selvedge flannel. Big in every way - weight, comfort and color. The fact that they're selvedge puts these into the must have category.
We've prepared a deep lineup of new workshirts for you this winter and we're leading off with one of our favorites that's unlike anything we've offered before. From style to wearability these workshirts offer a refreshing take for this authentic workwear style. The first thing that strikes you is the bold pattern and strong color. A monster size check gets treated to contrast color combinations. This version is in an electric green with black. Each has a vintage woodsman vibe. The moment you put these on you feel the 10 ounce weight and density of the fabric. It's felt-like, with a highly brushed surface and suppleness that makes them a pleasure to wear. It's like sinking into a warm blanket. Our vintage workwear details transform it into a true old-school rugged piece.
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. 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.
