SoapBox are back with another round of cut & sew garments, this time in the form of three ‘work shirts’, in a variety of patterns and materials. The brand are already known for their excellent cut & sew line, which has already seen the brand produce varsity jackets and overshirts, but this time they turn their attention to the wovens.
Available in three styles, the Soap-Box work shirts have been tailor made in the UK to the brand’s own specifications. The green plaid Heavy Shirt features a rounded hem, double chest pockets and a black cord yoke. There’s also a straight-forward blue/red plaid option, and a smarter grey shirt, with brown plaid yoke and cuff detailing. The shirts all feature silver ring snap fastening, which for me is an unfortunate downside, as I’d have much preferred traditional buttons – in my opinion, the snaps leave the shirt looking a little un-finished.
I admire the work that’s gone into the three shirts, particularly the contrasting shoulder yokes, but for me, there’s just a little something missing – but what do you think? The shirts are available now from SoapBox, priced at £60-£65. More pictures, and an animated trailer follow, let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
