Workshirts

2,055 posts in this topic

Is there a dedicated workshirt thread? I couldn't find one...

Anyhoo, I'm looking for a nicely made workshirt. Specifically, something sturdy, not necessarily denim (I'm not going for the cowboy look), and not really into plaid.

I see lots of options from FH, Sam, etc. etc. Any comments or experience? Are the arms typically short like the japanese denim jackets?

great thread idea.

i am fond of the engineered garments 19c chambray bd, and their workshirts look nice and worky, though i aint have 'un, though they will prolly be plaid. so yeah.

sturdy, side gussets, MOP buttons, boxy cut, vintage fabrics.

Got the Sam hickory stripe workshirt.

Great shirt as it comes to material and details, 10oz selvage hickory stripe denim so it doesn't give you the cowboy look.

The sleeves run short, and actually the Samurai shirts run small in general, be sure to size up at least one from your normal size.

^^ its sweet indeed.

Another great (and cheap) chambray option is the Ralp Lauren western chambrays that are all over ebay. The fabric is a nice lighter brushed chambray, and the cut is on the slim side. More of a cowboy look though.

Which do y'all prefers? I'll be wearing it with dark denimz.

Number A:

Letter 2:

I like Number A's details better, but I think Letter 2's colour will be less clashy.

What ch'all think?

I agree, the first one has some nice details, like the placket and short cuffs (I think) as well as the color, but you're right, the second will probably go better with dark jeans. Both nice, though. The fit looks great for J. Crew, which I always thought made only big billowy shirts.

^^^The top one is cool. Colors are nice too. I will post some of mine when I get a chance. Do western shirts count?

I know they're not going to be nearly as good quality as the Jap's, but they's cheap, which I like.

let us not include western shirts in this thread

they are a whole 'nother animal entirely

kinda

you wouldn't wear a western shirt with a chore coat

I did last week! Chambray western though, which in my opinion takes away from the cowboy feel alot. I agree on the regular plaid styles.

This ones pretty spiffy aswell:

G- star (of all brands, much be a much older piece), straight repro usn style chambray, in a heavy fabric. I have some trouble with the pointy collar, but it "authentic"...

Great thread...i have a couple of the FH western chambray (7004W) (although technically one could argue that western shirts are a more practical work shirt for wearing when working with cattle (snaps)..., but just managed to track down one of their chambray work shirts (7006W) in black...like this....

...which i've been trying to find for about a year!

Loving the work shirts from post at the mo too

Have you seen the beautiful black Ironheart shirt on SE? It's solid black, so not really like the one in your link, but it's sooooo nice.

Some AWESOME shirts this page! Unfortunately, most are too rich for my blood. Who makes the non-IH hickory stripe up there? Anything with this style on the cheap (relatively speaking)?

Edit: I just snooped some image names, it's a Samurai. Nice.
