We see a lot of American brands enter the UK, mainly on the streetwear sides of things, but the Americans are also pretty damn good at workwear too – take a look at this Ben Davis short sleeved workwear shirt for example.
Known for their smiling gorilla logo, Ben Davis is one of the more well known classic workwear labels to come out of the USA, making high quality and durable wears since 1935. The brand came to be a bit of a street wear cult brand back in the 90’s after the Beastie Boys where seen rocking it on the regular, as well as interviewing the brand owner Frank Davis for their magazine “Grand Royal”. The work shirt is made from 50% cotton and 50% polyester, giving the shirt the strength needed to last on a day-to-day basis. The shape, the logo and the mentioned quality has not changed in over 70 years. All made in the USA, this shirt comes with the half-zip-through, sat between the double chest pocketing.
