This is a lightweight denim shirt that is available with quite a few current and historic railroad names and logos embroidered above the pocket. The weight is just right, in my opinion, and it is well made.
I’m also a railroad fan among my other hobbies. I received this shirt as a gift this Christmas from another railfan friend who is as crazy as I am. The shirt is made by Port and Company. It is 100% cotton, and made in Bangladesh. Machine wash in cold water, tumble dry, no bleach.
I wasn’t sure from looking in the catalog if the denim would be heavyish. Some denim shirts are a bit stiff and can only be worn as a jacket. This is a nice lightweight, and slightly distressed-look denim. I have worn it as a shirt-jacket over a t-shirt in the winter, but it could be worn alone very nicely.
There is one left breast pocket, button down collar, and 7 front buttons on a placket. The cuffs have two buttons for adjustment, and the sleeve placket has an actual functional button. One spare button of each size is provided. Seams are all flat fell. I am impressed with the quality of the shirt. Of course, it was what I would call pricey, at $31.99, but it is a registered logo item. (And I didn’t pay for it, as it was a gift.)
The logo is embroidered over the pocket, and is backed with interfacing. 74 different logos/ road names are available (which can be put on polo shirts or these denim shirts). Sadly, they don’t have my favorite “fallen flag, ” The Lehigh Valley, but they have lots of others.
Except for wishing that I could have gotten Lehigh Valley, the only thing that might improve this would be a button on the pocket as it does tend to gap a bit because it’s a good sized pocket.
I ordered men’s small and it is just perfect. The sleeves are not too long, and the shirt is nice and roomy without being baggy. They are sized from small to 5XL.
Update On Mar 22, 2010: Washed this and hung it on the clothesline in a light breeze. It came out beautifully, with no wrinkles and the logo didn't shrink and pucker. Great shirt!
