$1000 Reward Shirt
The $1,000 Reward Shirt.
Some things are destined to become legends from the get-go. Take the iconic Big Yank shirt.
A black-and-white newspaper ad from 1931 offered “$1000 cash to any person who proves that Big Yank is made anywhere but in our Sanitary Daylight factories by skilled free American labor.” (About $15,436 in today’s money.)
That’s confidence. But the makers could back it up with 12 distinctive features including a patented sweat-proof cigarette chest pocket, engineered so a man could push a single cigarette up without unbuttoning the flap. (What you keep in that pocket now is your business).
For all the hard work you do and the easy stuff, too, it's time to upgrade your shirt.
The $1,000 Reward Shirt (No. 6705). Iconic Big Yank construction in 100% cotton indigo Japanese chambray or 100% cotton jaspé (two yarns dyed separately colors then woven together, resulting in a salt and pepper color). Features the two chest pockets that helped to make this shirt into a legend. The pocket on your right is sized just-right for a Moleskine notebook. Note the pronounced pointed collar, high-set curved yoke, and curved hem. Sturdy double-needle stitching. Storm cuffs. Action elbows. Classic urea 2-hole channel workwear buttons. Imported.
