    My tailor charges 16 for hemming chinos/denim. Doesn't chain stitch though.

    $16 is a lot. I think mine is $8 but I don't go anywhere fancy.

    Place by my office is $15, other place by my house is $10. Not chain stitch, just your basic hem.

    Be wary on those workshirt guys they posted up a gusset picture of the indigoxindigo and it was crooked/slanted upwards from front to back, lol. Tweeted it at them first time i have ever seen them change a product image EVER. Now features the left side gusset and it is perfect. So keep an eye out on that quality control!

    Well now i wonder if they were testing multiple gusset style as the walking image of the hickory kinda looks like it too. They did take the image down but left it up as a promotional one on tumblr.

    I'm 6'0" and an athletic 185 pounds, I can't get into their slim fits (they seriously squeeze my calves), but the 34" straight fit works well...

    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.

    New workshirts look awesome. Backed the indigo/indigo.

    @joshgustin, I'd love to see a workshirt in slubby selvedge chambray like these (the black is probably my favorite) with tonal stitching:

    Stoked to see how the the slim fit turns out.

    Also, I just sent off a pair of slim fit grey silk 2s to Railcar Fine Goods to have them tapered a little (the stacks looked kinda sloppy). I'll try to remember to post pics here when I get them back.

    Ehm, is there a chance that you just saw a bad angle of the gusset? You seem really quick to jump down the throats of dudes who have been super transparent on this board -- way more than they need to be. Take a deep breath and either buy the shirt or don't.

    I second that.

    And even if it was crooked, I'm guessing it must have been a prototype of some kind, anyway.

    Quick tailoring question - I had my Super Lightweights tapered, but he overdid it, they're far too tight now. As he didn't cut them, there shouldn't be a problem undoing them and letting them out a bit, right?

    I dig the overall look of the workshirt but I'm not feeling the runoff. It's interesting to see it touted as a design benefit b/c those would get snipped off quick at my house.
    That indigoXindigo looks sharp.

    Funny you should say that, because I actually like it as a design element, but my maid wanted to snip them off. Fortunately she asked first.

    As long as the material's still there, it shouldn't be a problem.


    The chainstitch runoff is one of those super-nerdy details that Japanese repro denim companies like The Flat Head and Triple Works/Iron Heart include in their workshirts.

    IMO, the chainstitch runoff is stupid, faux-authentic stuff. No one actually doing actual physical work is going to spend 130 bucks on a workshirt with fake frayed stitching.

    Ive been wearing the 23 oz. slim jeans for about 6 weeks (I think, maybe less), but only about 2 days a week and have slept in then some nights. Getting in and out of them is still an ordeal. The waist fits very tight and my legs are constricted. Im giving them until Christmas and if they dont loosen up Ill probably donate them and start over with a different brand. I'd say I need another 1/2 inch at least. I probably should have gone a size up.

    I don't know i questioned when i saw it on the other ones if it is just a style choice and hey were demoing it on the test shirts. The image showed a crooked gusset and was changed o a much nicer one that was very even across, i don't know what else to say. Transparent......., meh. They don't even have a terms & conditions page for sales or policies of return/exchange. How transparent are they seems like a smoke filled room at times.

    Its mostly the waist, hips, and seat that are the problem. The narrow taper below the knee is a pain but looks and feels fine once on. Ive already gotten at least an inch of stretch. I could only close one button when they arrived. So, I hope I can get an extra half. I know about Left Field. I needed to size up on their Kerouac Chinos and they still fit snug.

    Here's a quick rundown from superfuturist beatle in an interview with Denimhunters talking about the workshirt from her bybeatle line:
