Thanks guys,
I found it at the Rosebowl, had to think about it for a bit, it being the state it's in, but I figured I can patch it up in the same style and it also seems to fit me quite spot on.

I love the IH stuff at SE, but I don't think I'd wear one of those shirts to a job site. Prison Blues makes cheap but reasonably good work shirts that one can actually wear for work.

Kato workshirts are awesome as discussed on previous page. Here are some up close and personal shots of the organic fabrics.

Does anyone actually own that hickory stripe shirt? I'm curious if it's worth $30 even...

Prison Blues


Not to overly politicize this thread, but prison labor is essentially slave labor. When you make .50¢ an hour and have to buy your own toothpaste, you don't have much choice in matters.

Personally I think that shit like that is completely fucked, and it's a big part of why I'm willing to pay a premium for items that are made by small, artisan-manufacturers in countries with some kind of labor regulation.

I think that the above could for a good discussion if people are able to keep their cool about it and don't get all worked up.
Not in this thread however, feel free to make a new thread for it.

More workshirts please!

Does anyone know how the sugarcane work shirts fit? I'm thinking about picking up this one, but I have no idea how to size it.

I really love that shirt...I went with a Buzz Rickson instead. From the measurements, it looks as though a SC/BR Medium is roughly an American Small. For reference take any other shirt you have and compare the measurements (you can probably find them on Hinoya).

Not to derail the discussion further (I know cotton already kind of warned) but i believe the prison blues brand he was referring to was the one based in oregon that paid the "prevailing industry wage" to their inmate workers - around $7.80/hr as opposed to the $1/hr inmates in michigan get paid to make license plates.

BTW that Kato shirt looks insane

They were a pleasure to deal with. The person who took my order was very pleasant, and was helpful and knowledgeable in helping to get the correct size.

Liking both those above. Especially like the white stitching for some reason on the BR - seem to remember seeing that on some post shirts too. Adding a random pic I found in F&E

The Big Mac® Long Sleeve Prewashed Chambray Shirt on the JC Penney website (look under workwear) is the classic style, 2 flap pocket work shirt priced at $24.99. Sure it's not going to be the same quality as some of the brands listed above. But has anyone any experience of this shirt? Is it cheap and nasty, or really good value?

That really is magnificent.

Here's a herringbone twill denim Samurai workshirt I have. It's a bit small on me, so I usually just wear it open.

^ that's lovely. That's the problem with Japanese shirts...strange sizing/shapes. My options were either (a) short sleeves, or (B) wider shoulders. Obviously avoidable by buying from the right brand...but that doesn't always equate to the right price.

same here!

i wonder that you actually spent money on a shirt you basically cannot button without looking silly, b-dawg.

no offence. just frustrated that there is not one single (e.g.) flat head shirt with a 46" chest!
