The Wabash shirt is an iconic piece of vintage workwear. This is the garment that built America, clothing the immigrant workforce of the 19th century in the USA. It was originally made by the native American Wabash tribe which settled along the banks its namesake river running through the mid-west. It provided a uniform for the railway construction workers as they literally built their dreams of a new life. The area itself in Indiana was first colonized by the French who called it Quabache. The word was eventually anglicized to Wabash.
The Flat Head takes the design of this shirt to a new level. The random dots and diamond design is so minute it is hard to tell one from the other and the felled seams use the thickest #8 Flat Head yarn. 12 oz selvedge fabric is rope dyed and the discharge printing technique is used to apply the unique Wabash design. The print is almost akin to a faded indigo against the rich blue of the fabric. This shirt will just get better and better with wear.
