Already sold it I'm afraid. Taking a loss on that one hurt because I originally had a Med. and exchanged it for the Small. By the time I realized it was too tight I had missed the window for returns...

Anyone have the Workaday 19th century BD, and can comment on the fit and sizing?
post #723 of 1411
they fit larger than an EG workshirt. I wear a large in an EG workshirt and had a medium in the blue Workaday oxford. It was a little tight through the chest and shoulders though and the neck was too small for me, but I could definitely wear it which I couldn't do with a medium workshirt. So it's not quite a full size down. Will go with my EG workshirt size next time and just accept the fact that it's going to be a little roomy below the chest.

Great shirts though, the oxford cloth they use is awesome, really beefy. Friend has the chambray and it's really nice too.

^Sizing down on Workaday 19th c's is a little agressive. I'd suggest sticking with your size and rocking it loose as intended.

I agree on this with the exception of the workaday Chambray. Due to the thickness of the oxford fabric, the extra room in the shoulders and chest aren't super noticeable and it's not like you are wearing a sack. And if you wash and put them in the dryer for a bit, they'll shrink further you can get them down close to the fit of the workshirt.

The chambray version on the other hand is much thinner fabric and is unwashed afaik. I washed mine in warm and put it in the dryer multiple times, and it's a little looser than I'd like, so will probably stick to wearing it in the summer.

If you have intentions of wearing any of the workaday versions buttoned, you probably won't be able to size down also. Other than the shoulder and chest, the rest of the shirt is cut similar to non-workaday 19th century shirts.

Does anyone have experience handling the heavyweight vintage chambray workshirts or miner shirts? I just received the regular blue chambray workshirt from Indigo & Cotton, and its a great fabric, but I wonder how much heavier the vintage chambray is. Is it comparable to the flannel? Any insight will be appreciated!

A few new things arrived at Jack Straw today:

Aviator jackets in olive
Andover jackets in a dark glen plaid, with matching shawl collar vests and cambridge pants

Also a small amount of FWK.

Not as heavy as the flannels and not a light as the chambray. The fabric has some weight to it and is very dense. We have the Miners shirt if you move that way.

For being a chambray fabric it's pretty heavy, way different than the standard chambray. I have the workshirt and am really imprssed with the fabric, I'd highly recommend picking one up...looks awesome in the miner shirt, would like to have that one too.

Regular chambray is awesome fabric this season too. Good year for chambray workshirts...just wish they'd bring back colors sometime. Scored a green after a year+ of looking, but still need a red (size large if anybody has one).

The worl is a solid mid weight I'd say, the leather is on the lighter side of what I'd like to see in this application, but not too light weight. Construction was very solid and it is fully lined in a poly-cotton blend black fabric and has two internal snap pockets.
My issues with it are minor, but enough to keep me from holding onto it. The fit (size large jacket, same as my size in this seasons workshirts) was great n the chest and shoulders, a little roomy in the stomach but large at the waist. With a elastic bottom like it has I would expect it tor a slim fit at the bottom so it sits against the body but it hung slightly loose on me at the bottom. Seemed weird for this style of jacket. Also the pockets are a deal killer for me, the jacket is short and top entry pockets make them almost useless for sticking your hands in them....and I like to be able to stick my hands in jacket pockets. Side entry or 45* entry pockets would have been much better and would have gone a long way towards me keeping the jacket.
Oh well, still a nice piece overall, just not perfect for what I want. It's already in the mail back to Barney's.

Thanks for the enlightenment. I know what you mean by the pockets being too high and with top entry. Same with last years field parka, I can hardly get my hands to the very bottom of those pockets. I took it for granted that the jacket sat tight at the bottom. I think I'm gonna sit out on this jacket now.
