    The Rite Stuff

    Hey @Ar_thor! The pre-order will run as long as I have stock, but we’re only making 100 total of these in 2 colors, so 50 per color over 5 sizes means we’ll be making 10 total per size/color. In other words, not that many per size!

    +1 for Eternal, I have a black Hermann Oak mousepad from him, nice work.

    iconic denim photos

    Looks like Bogey is doubling up with waist overalls under his bibs? Interesting watch pocket setup on the foreman's (?) chambray shirt.

    I like my Birdwell frog camo swim trunks but I could have gone a size up. Plus I don’t really go swimming anymore as I sunburn too easily and don’t have an indoor pool near me to use. If anyone’s in the market for a pair in w32 worn once let me know.

    The wabash / Stifel thread

    Yeah I was in on the bid at $100, got the email and saw the final price, no thanks!

    Chore coats

    Not a bad idea! Just need to survive 2020 first.

    Chore coats

    AFAIK, the defining qualities of a chore coat include: -Length; should be longer than a blouse (denim jacket) and reach at least halfway down one's rear, preferably covering it entirely -Two large patch pockets at the bottom of the front, generally open top (no flap) plus another patch pocket or two on the chest, one with a side opening to accommodate a pocket watch (usually on the wearer’s left-hand sign, made with right-handers in mind); optional inside pocket -Wobble shank buttons early on; snap buttons on later versions -No pleating on front (as on a blouse/denim jacket) but a wide facing that flares out to meet the outer edges of the collar stand at the base -No game pockets on the side or back (as seen on hunting coats) -No slash/hand warmer pockets -No riveting as on a denim blouse; bartacks instead -Cloth or disposable paper patches; no leather patches -Curved deep cuff -No upper chest panel like on a denim jacket -Two-piece back with a seam down the middle -Plain front (no bottom panel) As always, this is historical, so modern interpretations can feel free to change things up, not preaching the gospel here.

    Chore coats

    A wabash polka dot shirt was one look, but the main one worn though was definitely a white/ecru long-sleeved collared shirt: Subtler stripes here for a bit of power clashing: Band collar (attachable collar removed to keep it presentable for going to and from work):

    Going through 1920s railroad magazine scans: Not likely discharge printed, but in that vein:

    I got that far and then gave up.

    On my wishlist for this year is a pocket watch to go with my japanned/copper flash watch fob:

    Perhaps missing the point here, but explicably it is a vintage detail (whether one agrees with it or not is another matter): Obviously the point comes back to a Dieter Rams (who hated the design of cars in the '50s and '60s, appropriately enough) or Steve Jobs philosophy on design that design is not just about how things look, it's about how they work.
