GranPa's cleaning his room! Got some nice stuff from the old times!

Here is the weirdest workshirt ever. The back is so long and look at the front!

it looks like a pull over, but they've pleated it on the outside rather than than the inside. half button pull overs were a little more common in the earlier part of the century, but I've never seen one like this.

In the olden days, tailors were more mindful of matching fabric patterns on a garment, but this is sometimes overlooked with mass-produced garments today. Usually that is something that you will only see on A) simply patterned garments or B) High grade artisanal goods (like Bespoke suits).

It looks like the creator of that shirt didn't really care for that, which is definitely not to say it's a low quality shirt. It's actually kind of charming.

If it is what I think it is, then the front pleat is there in order to create an overlap for the buttons, so instead of having a seperatly inlaid button placket, it is just a part of the front. It's just a super simple construction thing.

It's kind of hard to explain but makes perfect sense once you see it.

I have a popover shirt myself with the same thing, and have been looking into using the feature for future shirts...

Just picked up this Studio d'Artisan workshirt. It is a dark, heavy chambray that is sanforized, stiff, and a bit hairy. It's a wonderful shirt.

this is not a chambray, but it is a work shirt and I thought some might appreciate some of the cool details.

How much was it? Looks like the same script for the over priced Self Edge shirts.

This Haversack take on the classic work shirt caught my eye. The club collar is an odd but interesting touch....not sure if I like it or not.

update of my wabash after a 30 degree soak:

-1" in length

-0.5" in sleeve

-1" in the width

fit is better now, but still quite "roomy" in the shoulders and arms. again, i suspect this to be part of the cut.

This thread continues to deliver.

Turntabloid, for what it's worth I think that's a perfect fit for this type of shirt.

Anyone know where I can get a chambray in grey? I've been looking everywhere but the only one I can find is the EG one, which is out of my price range.
