Vintage inspired rustic wool paired with our intricately constructed workshirt style - this is the all new Union Blue Wool Workshirt. Sewn in the USA at one of our best workshirt values.
One look at this special wool and you're transported back in time. It instantly reminded us of a vintage Union army wool uniform. That quintessential pale blue. The rustic wool feel. The slightly dusty, antique look aided by the addition of organic grey neps running throughout the fabric surface. This is a truly special style. The 9 ounce weight strikes just the right balance between warmth and wearability. Our authentic workshirt details from extensive triple needle work, to pen pocket, to gussets to chainstitch run-off are the perfect companion for this old-world wool. This is the winter workshirt to have.
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. 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.
