SOLD! REPLICA 1930's WORKSHIRT--Dickies  X Palmer Collab.. Made to Depression-era specifications!

SOLD! REPLICA 1930's WORKSHIRT--Dickies X Palmer Collab.. Made to Depression-era specifications!


Made by Dickies in Association with Palmer Archival Clothing Co., of New York City.


Sizes Available: 14.5 Reg; 15.5 Reg; 16.5 Reg

This shirt is incredible. This is a precise replica of a Depression-Era workshirt made by Dickies from 1922 until the Second World War, and was made by Dickies in collaboration with Palmer Archival Clothing.

These shirts are made from Camberton military-grade twill, which was first produced for the US Army in 1931. The cloth is woven on narrow looms with selvage, using ring spun plied yarns. They are cut to the precise specifications of Depression-era shirts, with original Depression Dickies shirts being used to produce the patterns. They are accordingly a correct 1930s cut, being trim through the midsection with high armholes. The buttons are authentic shell buttons, just like the original shirts. They feature narrow gauge felled seams selvage reinforcements, and inverted pleated chest pockets.

They were Made in the USA.

These are a limited edition release, and were retailed ONLY at a handful of very select outlets principally in New York and Los Angeles. They were produced in 2014, and very few are still available.

I have a very limited quantity of these shirts to pass along. The original retail was $180; my price is just $69, OR OFFER, boxed and shipped in the USA.

I have sizes 14.5, 15.5, and 16.5 available, all Regular fit. Once these have gone, there's likely to be no more!

Please PM with interest and offers!
