Jeans, denim shirts and chambray shirts took over prisons in the early 1900s. Out went the classic striped uniforms. It’s a tradition that has lived in some prison systems to the present day. The change was brought forth by the growing number of non-violent, working class offenders. They influenced the general attitude within the prison system, which also led to redefining the concept of incarceration: from punishment to rehabilitation.
This is our interpretation of the durable classic working class denim shirt. It is made of 100 % organic cotton with county orange detail finishing.
