If you have a tough time sifting through racks of vintage clothing in search of the real deal or simply don’t have the patience, reproduction brands are the next best thing. And if it’s a classic work shirt you’re after, it’s your lucky day because one of Japan’s leading military reproduction brands, Toys McCoy, has released their Utility Shirt, a spitting image of the original utility shirts of the 1960s-1970s.
Made in Japan, this utility shirt is in the famous OG-107 olive sateen, a fabric used for decades by the US military from the 1950s up until the late-80s. The 100% cotton sateen gives the surface some gloss while retaining a softness and breathability to it, and should wear in beautifully like the sateen of yesteryear. With two utility pockets at the chest (one with a pencil slot), four-button closure down the front, and a vintage-style tag, its features are simple, but just as utilitarian as they’d ever been.
Available at Blue in Green for $250 USD.
