From Victorian era curiosities to early 20th century equestrian and motorcycle wear to rare WW2 era items - Black Sign garments are beautifully constructed, with a shared identity and aesthetic cohesion running through the collection to a degree we rarely see in brands focusing on reproductions & recreations.

The Engineer Shirt was a popular workwear style a little more than 100 years ago, during the 1910s and 20s, Black Sign have reproduced the style based on historical photographs of several different styles. Featuring a band collar, it's cut with long sleeves and a curved swooping hem for wearing tucked in, the yoke is done sideways, with gathering just behind the shoulders to help you move.

It's made from a cotton/linen check fabric that's been lightly brushed for softness and comfort. The weave is slightly uneven, imparting the whole thing with an irregular texture and subtly rough hand. It's cool, dry, and breathes easily, making it an excellent fabric for hotter weather, allowing you to layer even when temperatures rise.

The front features two asymmetrical chest pockets, one classic and one for a pocketwatch, with an additional angled buttonhole in the placket for a pocketwatch chain. Everything has been pattern-matched as well, for a properly put together look.

Fits true to size. Wash cold and hang dry.
