Hey guys, if you've been following my IG you might have seen that I've started my own brand; my first shirt is out now, made with John Lofgren, the Heracles chambray shirt. The idea is to combine made in Japan quality work and materials with an emphasis on Western body types.

The shirt is made of 5 oz. selvedge chambray, milled in Japan; details include triple chain stitching along main seams, shoulder and back yoke, ventilation holes, reinforced elbows, and painted metal buttons.

Thanks Mr. Black; it's just one piece at a time right now as it's pricey to make these kinds of shirts, however the next run will likely be the same shirt in ecru chambray. After that, the sky's the limit though! I have designs for a denim shirt, T-shirt, aloha shirt, and Western-style wabash pullover sitting in front of me. Embarrassed

Thanks guys! Yes, the color and heft to the fabric is very nice; just one of the benefits of meeting John in Sendai was being able to look over fabrics in person. Smile

Nice shirt, the buttons and back yoke are reminiscent of the 'Mechanic Shirt' which is a shirt that i really like.
Whats the story with the venting above the yoke?  is this a detail that you've reproduced from vintage/elsewhere or just a design feature.
I get the reason for the pit-vents where material becomes compressed.

Thanks Double O; yes, the idea came from the old Powr-House shirts, which was part of the inspiration for this shirt (this shirt is not an exact repro of one specific older model though); As for why Powr-House went with back vents, it's only my guess but a look at a heat map of the body like the one below shows that the upper back is one of the sweatiest parts of the body.

A little follow-up to Double 0's question about ventilation eyelets on the rear yoke, I remembered that John mentioned to me in Sendai that he thought the original patent for this style belonged to one Champion; he was right, the earliest-known design in this vein (to my knowledge, please correct if wrong) was filed in 1928-29 by John W. Champion:






His reasoning for the back/shoulder yoke vent holes was two-fold: one, to provide ventilation, and two, to provide extra stitching to keep the double layer of fabric better in place (the same would go for the front yokes as well).

I quote:

"A group of ventilating eyelets 17 are preferably placed under the Serial No. 308,936. arm pits and through both thicknesses of the front pieces, and serve not only as ventilating eyelets but as further means of holding the superposed layers of material in place."

"The ventilating function of the eyelets provides a comforting coolness to the shoulder of the wearer at the region where the binding strain is the greatest and also at the region where the goods is of double thickness and consequently more inclined to feel hot. It is to be noted also that the eyelets are so placed that while coming substantially in the line of strain, they are placed at positions in the goods where the line of strain runs at a. bias to the straight of the goods. As a result the eyelets are not so easily torn as they would be if they were placed where the strain came along the straight of the goods and the goods could not stretch."

Wow great find on that patent! Very much a fan of this shirt design.
As far as I know there are 4 other versions of this shirt with that same double yoke/ double elbow configuration - PowrHouse (wards), Compass (JC Penney), Milton FGoodman and this Hercules.

I wonder if any pics of that Champion are floating around?? I know Cabourn has an original of the Hercules.

Lim, I've not been able to find any images of an existing Champion shirt, though Workers did a straight repro of it I believe last year, though with some Big Yank details such as the logo button and label.

I'm hoping a Champion shows up in a barn someday!

Ahh yes! Some lovely fabrics they chose too. Funny they called it the Milton F Goodman, but did the regular placket instead of doing the popover version. Has anyone done the true 4 button placket style?

Lim, I think you mean this shirt (this ad is in the mail on the way to me too :)



To my knowledge no, I've never seen anyone repro this shirt as a popover. Something for me to consider making. :D

Edit: Spoke too soon, sort of; a small brand from the UK called the Worker's Club did a chambray very similar to the Milton F. Goodman shirt, but there are no ventilation holes, the pockets are different, the front placket has an arrow shape, and the front and back yokes don't connect, similar to the below shirt from a 1928-29 Montgomery Ward catalog:

That's the one! Have seen RRL versions that had the double yoke/elbows and were popover style, but the pockets/placket were also different and the chinstrap shape may have been different. An accurate repro with selvedge gussets would be amazing

Success, found pictures of an original thanks to the always-awesome Mushroom Vintage; someone bought it, but I don't know who:


And a khaki one courtesy of Denimfoundry that's been beat to hell:



And the box these shirts likely came in; the faded border around the logo reads "Registered US Patent Office, Patented Dec. 24th, 1912":

Interesting to note that patent says 1912 on this pullover style, nearly 20 yrs before the Champion patent.

You're right, it's 1912, I accidentally read 1917. That's crazy early really, but then again the 1910s are an era that remains relatively obscure in terms of this kind of clothing.

Come to think it, weren't most pre 1930s shirts either pullover style or 5 button with the placket that would scoop out towards the hem (best example I can think of is the MF cpo)?I guess that would make sense for the pullover to predate the "coat style" versions?

I'm not sure what percentage of work shirts pre-30s would have been pull-overs and or scooped; it's possible that it's most yes, but I still see examples of some that aren't, like this one from the 1920s:


Here you see two men with pullovers, and one with a placket that goes all the way down:

Just a heads up to Canadians, it's taking at least 3-4 weeks for anything I send from here to reach Canadian customers, apparently Canadian customs is taking a very long time to go through parcels from Asia:

No worries dude, I think most of us have a lot of blue shirts. LOL

The T-shirt will be a tube knit, in a medium weight cotton, and off-white with ecru stitching:




The neck looks wide in my little sketch but I've specified for it to be a standard, smaller neck opening. The front pocket was inspired by the Black Beauty pullover that Reliance Mfg. Co. made in the 1920s:

Hey, sorry about the late update on this, I just got the ETA for the XL and XXL sizes not long ago, I'm expecting to have them in late October. Reason being, I had to have more buttons made up, which took about 3 weeks, and now it seems the sewing factory is a bit busy too. Still, they're coming!

These are the measurements we gave them:

In addition, the long-sleeve henley sample is coming soon after.

I've also got a new blog post up, though I warn you the pool goes into the philosophical deep end:

absolutely gorgeous! living in the south really precludes me from ever needing a henley, but I may have to get on on principle alone

and as usual, the blog is always such a great way to let us inside the product and your brain, you and I seem to see the whole cone situation eye to eye... well, I'm more of a fan based on a history with levis going back to my childhood. thanks again for your thoughts!

still looking forward to the heracles in XL

I'm excited about the pre order. I happened to luck out on the timing since I have been looking for a nice henley.

Thanks guys; Ini, yep the blog was originally suggested by a friend and it's turned out to be a good a idea. Smile The Heracles in XL and XXL are here with me now, let me know if you need one.

An update on the wabash and hickory stripe scarves set to arrive next week: I have lowered the price from $85 to $65. 

The reason being, the factory screwed up and misunderstood our directions, and accidentally cut off the selvedge line on the wabash scarves. This is the first time something this egregious has happened to John Lofgren. I've decided to go ahead with these, because otherwise they would be a waste, and because to remake them would mean waiting until Jan. 2018 as we bought up the last of this fabric, so the mill would have to make more. 

If you're looking for a stocking stuffer for Christmas Wink :

Ooms, no word on his health status. Keeping him from sharp objects would be a good idea. Not answering the door to any wandering ronin named Itto Ogami who I "accidentally" paid 500 ryo to "fix the problem" would also be smart. Tongue
