It had to be done - our unique Acid Rainbow Nep Wool paired with our vintage Workshirt style. We decided to the only way to make it better was to offer it at one of our best workshirt values ever. Enjoy.
Hands down one of the most beautifully unusual wools we've found. The base is a cross between mustard and jet black, creating a rich and earthy muted acid yellow color. It's completely fresh and unlike anything we've seen before. The black creates a subtle shadow effect to contrast the brighter yellow. Step up close and you get a rare surprise - a huge tapestry of colored rainbow neps dotting the surface in green, red and blue. Each garment is unique. The 10 ounce wool base makes for a substantial feel. Our authentic workshirt details from extensive triple needle work, to pen pocket, to gussets to chainstitch run-off are the perfect companion for this special wool. The value is undeniable.
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.
