Inspired by knockabout work shirts from the 1950s onwards, the Dayton Shirt is your classic Garage work shirt, complete with camp collar, twin chest pockets, and comfortable short sleeves. The fit is pretty standard, breezy and unrestrictive but in general not too slim or too wide, with a comfortable body that wears well both tucked and untucked.

It's made with Freenote's usual stellar construction, including their usual 1/8" double needle stitching and durable felled seams. The hardware, buttons in this case, is all metal, but can be found the whole way up the placket and securing the top of each bucket chest pocket. After finishing, each shirt is also rinsed to account for any shrinkage and to help relax the fabric.

It's made from an 8oz 100% cotton piece-dyed oxford cloth from Japan. Cool, dry, and sturdy, it's a fantastic summer weave, open and breathable with a structured drape that will relax over time. Though it starts slightly stiff, the fabric break in over time, taking the shape of the wearers body.

Fits true to size. Wash cold and hang dry.
