Repro work shirts do a great job resurrecting the style, details, and fabrics that make originals so legendary. But when so much goes into all the little things, it can be difficult to think about the big picture. And by the big picture, I’m talking about the only thing more important than gussets and thread run off, I know hard to believe… and that’s cut!
The fit of an old-time-inspired work shirt is so freaking important and when it’s updated to the point of rivaling a tailored button-down, it kind of contradicts the goal of the originals. Meant for a maximum range of flexibility, work shirts were meant to fit relaxed, with comfort in mind.
Burgus Plus is doing the OG’s proud with their Wide Silhouette Beta Chambray Work Shirt. That’s right, in addition to the vintage-loomed chambray and triple stitch sewing, the shoulder, body, and armholes have all been widened for an easygoing feel and aesthetic. Finished with metal buttons, this made-in-Japan shirt is sure to age to perfection the more it gets folded into the rotation. And with the fit you wish your shirts always had, that’s gonna happen sooner than later.
