Loggers in the Pacific Northwest have an unusually durable shirt for their work, the Hickory Shirt. The material is a tightly woven 100% cotton. It is highly snag resistant, made to withstand the jaggers on the chokers, the small snags of broken wire on the cables used to hold the logs being taken from the forest.

This shirt from Prison Blues is made of 100% 8 oz. cotton with all the traditional hickory shirt features. The button front shirt is full cut, with rounded tails. The long sleeves have two-button square cut cuffs. It has two chest pockets with button flaps. The back yoke has a second layer of fabric extending 5 inches down the back. This shoulder reinforcement not only helps fend off jaggers and snags from branches, but provides extra protection from wear on the back for the drivers wheeling the logging trucks in and out of the wood.

The shirts are generously sized, even after the 2-4% expected shrinkage when washed. Machine wash warm (no bleach), tumble dry warm. The shirts are stiff when new but soften with washing and wear. Color is the traditional narrow white and navy stripes. Made in USA of imported fabric.

  • Prison Blues

    Prison Blues -- Made on the Inside to be worn on the Outside

    Prison Blues was formed by the State of Oregon in 1989 as a way to create jobs for the Oregon Correctional Institution.

    The factory, located at the Eastern Oregon Correctional Institution in Pendleton, Oregon, is 47,000 square feet and produces many garments including shirts, jeans and hats. Each inmate must pass a detailed hiring process. They are then trained by managers with private industry experience.

    By purchasing a Prison Blues garment, you get a quality product made by inmates who take pride in their work. You are also supporting a program that teaches inmates valuable working skills that they need to become contributing members of society.
