8HU (8 Hour Union) is a Joe McCoy sub-label that focuses specifically on the garments produced after the rapid postwar industrial boom in the US (roughly 1930-1950), recreating some of the most humble yet influential workwear pieces of the last century.
The latest iteration of their Denim Serviceman Shirt, featuring a new pocket configuration and new fabric. With the same roomy work shirt cut, heavy double-needle seams and 100% cotton thread, the chest pockets are now asymmetrical, with one featuring a flap cover in addition to the contrasting white button closure. Also speaking of thread, it's been swapped from copper to pure white, all the way down to the chainstitch runoffs.
Sewn up from a 10oz, 100% cotton denim, is woven with a gray weft, giving a lighter and more vibrant appearance to the indigo. Raw and unsanforized, expect almost a full size of shrinkage following the first wash - these are cut large and intended to shrink down to tag size, so if the raw measurements look good, size up.
Raw, unsanforized, shrink to fit denim. Fits true to size after washing and drying. Cold wash and hang dry for less shrinkage, increase heat for more..
