SoapBox ‘Work’ Shirts

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.

    The quality looks top notch. I quite like the ring snap fastening and certainly wouldn’t say they make it look un-finished.

    Agree with the comment about the buttoning, also I don’t like the label sewn into the back, makes the shirt look cheap. Not a huge fan of plaid but the last shirt is doing it for me with the subtle plaid contrast, shame as I would have bought one if the other features were fixed up.

    Respect though, quality looks great and its good to see something different with the animated video!


    If you’re going to get shirts made, it doesn’t cost much to go to a textile printers and have your own design/pattern printed onto the fabric. Although they are doing cut and sew shirts, wheres the detailing that defines these above the rest? a decent stitch, an embroidery, even a inner pocket feature? any of these would step up your game…and with the label on the back is…agreed, naff. From personal experience I’ve thought the fit of the Trapstar shirts have been way above the others, good length and cut with an unusual array of colours of plaid and fabrics…Im not a Trapstar collector, they lost my vote when they kept releasing old designs over and over… but I guess bills gotta be paid.
