So, thoughts on the three workshirts released today? Love the new fabrics. Love the design and details, especially the selvedge gussets and chainstitch runoff. The only detail I'm not crazy about is the slanted front pockets on the hickory stripe shirt; I queried this on IG & they confirmed that all striped shirts would have slanted fabric on the pockets. To me it is distracting and impacts the overall look.
I understand there is more labour involved in making a shirt than jeans, but feel the price is slightly high when compared to the price of the oxford/button-down shirts (though I do acknowledge they are using a US shop that specialises in workshirt techniques).
Finally, a comment on the new slim fit. The shoulder measurements appear the same as the classic fit, is this a typo? Also, is it correct that the slim fit will have less side scoop? If so, I'm glad I ordered classic fit as I like a high side scoop on workshirts.
Overall I'm very happy with the new line of workshirts & hope we see some great selvedge fabrics come through.
The shoulders on our classic fit are already pretty trim so we didn't want to take that measurement down. We have been asked a lot to slim the body down, which is where we focused. Side scoops are a totally different shape on the workshirt and lower on both fits as compared to our standard button down. Thanks.
