Prison Blues Short Sleeve Button Hickory Shirt
Prison Blues hickory logger shirts are assembled in Pendelton, Oregon in conjunction with a program to rehabilitate and teach new job skills to prisoners. Hickory shirts (also known as railroad shirts) are named after the cotton striped fabric they are made from, which is a relative of denim and said to be as durable as hickory wood. They are the standard uniform of west coast loggers and railroad engineers, but are also popular with welders, truckers, factory workers and ranchers. Prison Blues hickory shirts are made from 8 oz. cotton fabric and triple needle stitched. These are a full cut, relaxed fit shirt that allows for better movement and better range of motion. This short sleeve version features a button front with two buttoned pockets, one with a pencil slot. Prison Blues hickory shirts are made from unwashed cotton fabric that is oversized and very stiff when new, and will require several washes before it shrinks and softens up. Made in the USA of imported fabric.
