Japanese denim stalwarts ‘Edwin‘ are back with a classic workwear shirt that’s a must for any budding lumber jack, or is it more socially acceptable to say ‘tree surgeon’ nowadays? Or is that an altogether different profession? Who knows? Who cares? I’m having far too more fun googling ‘what do lumber jacks wear’ and being confronted with a 1978 photo of an axe-wielding Andy Gray wearing a trapper hat that’s straining every last stitch to keep his aggressive perm under wraps. Trust me … it’s worth a look.
Anyway disgraced Sky Sports analyst’s aside, the aptly named Labour Flannel Shirt is constructed from a thick wool/cotton blend featuring a curved hem, spread collar and two chest pockets making it ideal for storing pencils, allen keys, that old ‘tinker’ swiss army knife (you know the one with the phillips screwdriver) and any other items popular with you tool hounds.
The Labour shirt comes in two colour-ways; a classic red check or this navy/beige multi-stripe featured above. So, whether you’re out in the yard chopping wood, in the kitchen chopping onions, or in the bathroom chopping your fuzz to resemble big Al Borland’s beard of all beards, do the right thing and get yourself one of these man shirts.
Pick them up from Merseyside’s finest independent Wearers Door.
