I can see this upcoming AW season being very exciting in regards to clothing. Not only have brands been forced to pull their fingers out with the current economic climate, Workwear is still making all the headlines. With Workwear, especially in the winter its the season where brands really make their money. You're paying for much more weight in fabric and also the updated technology, Gortex doesnt come cheap.
The summer season hasn't completely vanished, I'm guessing we've got about 4 more weeks until we're forced to put our shorts back into hibernation.
I was very curious to see how workwear got on through the summer, so far the chinos, denim jackets, french army jackets, oxford shirts have all been very popular but short sleeve shirts hardly made an appearance. Brands didn't really tackle this particular item of clothing.
The ones that i've seen around are...
Standardly the Dickies one is still going strong, available in every colour under the son. This thing will last you forever.
The Edwin Jiggler made in lightweight cotton is a good choice for those super hot days. They've updated this piece with some embroidery and patches. Available in Khaki and Black.
This Ben Davis number is my favourite, heavyweight classic with the half zip. Available in a variety of solid colours and the same in the hickory stripe.
Stores like Albam and Garbstore have a great selection of workwear inspired clothing but no amazing short sleeve shirts. Lets hope next year the short sleeve shirt game will come strong.
What short sleeve shirts have you seen?
