The Rite Stuff - Heracles Chambray Work Shirt
The Heracles long-sleeve chambray, made in Japan by John Lofgren & Co.
Based on the style of work shirts first appearing in the 1910s and 1920s, but not a strict reproduction, the Heracles chambray shirt can be worn comfortably in all seasons, for both work or play. Reinforced underarms, forearms, and back provide extra strength, and ventilation holes give relief from heat and sweat. The paint on the metal buttons will chip with wear and washing, revealing a timeworn character. Triple chainstitching ensures durability, and the open-top pockets are easier to reach in and out of. The one-piece sleeve placket construction will stand up to more wear, too. Extra length in the body means the shirt stays tucked in, giving a tidy appearance. The Heracles is built to last and look better with age.
