The Iron Heart IHSH-281-BLK Work Shirt is a medium weight, reinforced piece produced from a 5 oz. sanforized and rinsed Japanese Selvedge Madras box-weave fabric that's appropriate for warm weather yet substantial enough for year-round use. Using sulfur dyed yarns in a perfect palette of blue and khaki over black in a tattersall check pattern, this heavy duty oxford style cloth is designed to evolve, conveying workshop class through fading and patina potential. Coming in the signature Iron Heart Work Shirt pattern, this piece is perfectly proportioned in terms of length to be worn untucked for modern-vintage styled grit. This Work Shirt has numerous and carefully considered construction and design details like the squared shoulder and back yoke panel, which is paired with signature Iron Heart black cats eye buttons on the dual patch front chest pockets with pencil slot, placket, and cuffs to make a piece for the stylistically sound and self-reliant. Further, selvedge line reveal on the placket and cuffs, internal felled seams, and chainstitched construction with a denim blue interior thread and inseam run-off give this piece all the necessary heritage provenance, and then some. The Black Selvedge Madras Tattersall Check Work Shirt strikes the balance between classic and modern applications, making it a future heirloom, a year-round go-to, and a new project piece that will only get better with wear. Built for the biker and over-engineered to start, the Iron Heart 281-BLK tests the limits of what actually can be artfully woven and sewn, delivering a lifetime of durability in a work-ready design.
