Ever wonder what an engineer takes to the construction site in Afghanistan? Besides my PPE this is my daily kit. My favorite is the wallet that I had made here locally for $30. The belt is vintage. Picked that up thrifting for 99cents before I left the states. Jeans are STF 2 years one wash one soak.
Cotton chamois/ deerskin is a severely under-represented material in good shirting; it’s like flannel’s meaner, tougher big brother. Keep an eye of the clearance racks of your local outfitter this spring. These heavyweight deerskin workshirts will be on sale and you’ll regret not nabbing one when the temps start to drop again.
They aren’t selvedge, but I still love them. These are my work jeans. I wore them for over a year while in Afghanistan. I spent about $25 for them. One of the best raw purchases I ever made. Dollar for Dollar, Levis 501 STF is right up there with the best.
