The 8 Hour Union label draws inspiration from the era of the start of factory production, consumption and overall increase in domestic economy in the United States that followed after the First World War and continued to accelerate after World War II. The garments that were created during this period remain as stylish and functional now as they were then; often being highly sought after amongst vintage collectors. Using our vast archive of vintage clothing and keen attention to detail, this golden age is captured in each and every piece produced under the 8 Hour Union Label.
The fabric of this work shirt is made from a cotton corduroy which is then printed with a plaid check pattern, something which was often seen on hunting wear of the 1940s. The shirt is then finished with elbow patches and urea buttons, details seen on shirts of the time.
