We're not saying you should do it, but you could. The Cone Oxblood meets our authentic workshirt style to create a unique American made garment at a superb value. As great in workshirt form as it is in our recently launched 5 Pocket, if you love oxblood pair them for the oxblood tuxedo.
This is a rugged and rich oxblood denim woven by our favorite American mill. Oxblood is simply a stellar color. There is an an earthy richness to it that makes what might seem like a wild color option into something classy and usable for any season. The white weft in this style helps it retain a classic denim look while adding life and brightness to counterbalance the deep brown-red warp. It's our favorite oxblood combination. The 10 ounce weight and nicely starched surface is gives this workshirt a burly feel. We'll probably pair it with crisp raw denim or even a great pair of chinos, but we might give the full oxblood Tuxedo a go from time to time
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.
