The Japanese brand Buzz Rickson's are today counted among the few high-end reproduction manufacturers of military and casual garments in the world! They strive to make true replicas by carefully researching and analyzing original vintage garments, taking great care to duplicate the material while paying close attention to technique and quality with the goal to bring back old forgotten techniques and machines needed to make garments of outstanding quality without compromises.
This garment is a reproduction of the 1910's WW1 US Army Brown Denim Work/ Chore Shirt. Brown denim was the standard fabric used by the army but was replaced by the blue denim version in 1919. The pullover was standard issue up until the 40s when a jacket with lower pockets and a buttoned up front replaced it. We actually have a original blue denim version of this as a part of our archive and we wrote a blog post about it which you can read here!
