Wabash print fabrics, popularized by the J.L. Stifel and Sons company in the early 20th century, are workwear stalwarts despite only about 30 years of production.
The vent hole work shirt was designed by the American brand Powr-House in the 1940-1950s. It aims to increase the airflow, let the operator feel drier. With the advent of new quick-drying technology fabrics, this old-fashioned design only appeared as a retro symbol.
Wabash is pure Indigo dye. When wearing this garment for the first time is it possible if worn over something like a white T-Shirt that some blue dye transference will happen. This will gradually stop after a few washes.
Machine wash cold with like colors. Do not bleach. Iron or tumble dry on low.
In order to best determine fit, it may be helpful to compare our garment’s measurements to a similar garment you already own. Lay your garment on a flat surface and take all measurements from the outside of the garment.

First time Bronson buyer and I suspect I'll be buying again! Great shirt, apparently made well and happy to say it's likely sized well.
Very well made shirt and fits perfect
Great shirt. Well made, with a nice weight to it. Initially thought I might need size 40 but when looking at the measurements size 42 looked closest to another shirt I wear in a similar way (Levis Barstow Western Shirt, size Large). That proved to be the right call. Fit is great for layering with a t-shirt or Henley underneath. Will be very happy to buy from Bronson MFG again.
As with all Bronson stuff, I love it. This is no different.
Really outstanding, great vintage look, feel, material w/o the ridiculous "heritage" price! A+++++++++

Great Shirt , great fit and material
This is a quality wabash shirt without a doubt. All of the small details are present and the fit is pretty good. Haven’t had it long enough to see the fades but I can imagine they’ll be nice. Check it out, it’s worth the price.
The fabric is a little stiffer, a little thicker and rougher than I imagined. I am hoping it will feel softer after a wash. Otherwise it is just as pictured and a very well-made shirt.
Great shirt, sturdy, looks sharp. It DOES run a bit small, so check your measurements.
The shirt is super nice, I wear it often. Here, too, the quality and workmanship are top!
Fits really nice and is of good quality…
As an American customer, I was skeptical of this brand at first as it popped up out of nowhere and is at a reasonable price point with everything made in China. I was worried that it would take forever for the shirt to ship or that it wouldn't arrive at all. Boy was I pleasantly surprised! The shipping was super easy with frequent tracking updates. The shirt showed up exactly as described. It's incredible quality, like something you would expect from a high end American workwear brand. The stitching is really top notch. It feels really high quality in the hand and has a heavy weight to the fabric. I ordered a size 38 and I'm about 160 pounds and 6'0. Fits great. Would highly recommend to anyone considering.
Great value for this shirt. Fit it true and looks great.
Love this shirt, excellent detail
well made but a bit under sized for westerners. but great feel cotton .
My new favorite shirt by far! Great fit, quality, and look. Love this shirt.
Really nice quality for a reasonable price! I normally wear size L but had to size up. So I picked size XL which fits really nice. This shirt has a normal fit so no slim fit.
The shirt is absolutely beautiful as well as extremely well made. I’ll be ordering more from this shop!
Greatest shirt. I bought 2!
Fantastic quality and fit is spot on! This was my first Bronson purchase and a great introduction to the company. I chose a 42 size based on their chart and at roughly 5' 10" and 185 lbs the fit is so nice. Looks great tucked or more casual with the triple stitch runoff proudly on display. Love the back yoke details and now that the weather has FINALLY cooled here - this will be a fall / winter staple.
Really nice shirt!
The fabric is thicker than expected and I like it. Overall I’m really satisfied.
Great shirt for the price. Fit was surprisingly done very well. I’m a 38 and Size 38 was spot on!
What can I say! Just had to go head to toe Bronson today. Loving this shirt great quality and detail. I went for the 42 for that extra bit of room and comfort, Bronson never cease to amaze.
Beautiful and very well made wabash shirt, for its price is the best on the market, every guy should have one in his closet.
Solid and fits very well
Super smart and top quality shirt. I’m a 36 in most things with Bronson but I sized up to 38 as I have broad shoulders and after having read the other comments here
Magnifique chemise ! J’en suis très content, c’est une de mes préférées. Taille L pour moi, qui fais 1,77 m et 85 kg. Merci Bronson MFG !
Item itself is well made and a lovely style.
Size is quite small, which should be taken into account, when ordering
I'm 6'3" tall, 200lbs, and ordered a 46 (XXL). I normally wear an XL in North American sizes, so this is sized up two from my usual tag size, but the measurements provided seem accurate, so I would recommend focusing there to gauge your best fit. The shirt is a nice substantial fabric, but also very soft and comfortable. It fits great across the chest, back and shoulders, and the sleeves are perfect. Based on the measurements I hoped this would be the case, but I was a bit surprised that the shirt wasn't too large around the mid section, which I run into pretty often. One of the best "off the rack" shirt fits I've had. Overall quality is really nice and I look forward to ordering more. Shipping was pretty slow to Canada, but that's not really surprising at the moment.
Love it! Great build quality and fit.
Best quality clothes, a fraction of the price of another well know brand, however, whatever size you think you need , Double it...these shirts are made for Asian men ...could be more generous in fit
Still, outstanding quality
Easily my favourite shirt. Well made and durable. Great price.
Beautiful shirt! The quality feels as good as can be and very comfortable. I would recommend choosing one size up.
Another great shirt well made and great material. Almost a slim fit but that's probably me being not so slim!
Love this shirt! Nice thick cloth, high quality.
Was worried about sizing because I normally wear a US large (42) ... Typically a 44 in the US is an XL. Based upon the sizing chart I was a 44 (XXL) in this bronson shirt... I would definitely order up 1 or 2 sizes or just follow the sizing chart, if you normally wear US standard size shirts. I'm 6'1" 215lbs and the 44 (xxl) fits perfectly. Love the cut and the style, stitching is nice (minus the inside of the armpit, but that's not visible), nice mid-weight, matches well to pictures, came in 2 weeks to US... Looking to buy some of the other shirts... Definitely recommend BE SURE TO FOLLOW THE SIZING CHART!
Great shirt - love the colour and the heavy fabric. Solid construction and at an amazing price. Sent promptly to the UK. Will buy again!
Great shirt ,really good quality and looks fabulous
Ottima camicia stile vintage, fatta in un cotone spesso.
Bronson ancora mi stupisce per il prezzo e per la qualità
great looking shirt good quality fits perfectly well. I would advise to take a size bigger then usual
Awesome shirt i got a size 44 im 1.82cm and weight 85kg.
Love the shirt,fit and Quality
I'm very pleased with this shirt.. true to size, perfect fit, good quality and nice design. It's very comfortable too. It took 16 days to arrive delivered from China to the UK.
As always excellent quality and value for money. I'm also sporting their USAF WW2 A-4 Watch Cap.
Awesome shirt. Great quality and rugged look make this shirt a piece that is timeless.
Love it. Buy this shirt.
Looks great. Well made.
Looks like something from an expensive boutique label like iron heart although quality might be a little less.
However the price point means anyone can buy it.
The shirt fits good, and i like it too much, tnx guys have a good one✌
Great Shirt! Nice medium weight, durable feel and great fit.
Great shirt, fits perfectly.
I couldn’t be happier with the shirt and whole transaction.
Took a couple weeks to receive this shirt but it's worth the wait. For the price, I don't know that you could find a better shirt. It's very high quality and thick and I love the way it feels. Exactly what I was looking for. Feels like a tough shirt when you put it on. For reference I'm 6 ft, 195 lbs, 47" chest and ordered the size 48 and it fits me perfectly. Definitely recommend!
This is a super good looking shirt. Very durable and I love the fit! I highly recommend.
Had to order a second one but I love it So far hope it fades nicely
High quality design and fabric. A bit trim in size for large.
The fit was perfect and the quality is good.
Great shirt. Wore it to work, got a bunch of compliments on it.
Excellent products and services. I'll be a Bronson Denim fan for life!
Love the detail and fit.
So, the shirt is great, the stitching, the patterns, looks very good. Id like to offer a better description of the fit. My measurements would fit M38, I sized up (based on reviews) to L40. I am 5’8” and swing between 153- 162 pounds. The L40 fits snug, not too tight, the sleeves are perfect length. But if the difference in size is that narrow I may order L42 on my next purchase. USPS is backed up right now I didn’t get many updates on tracking but package arrived in about 2 weeks (like they said it would lol).
Love it! More bigger sizes.
Very well made, color tone perfect, if any change could be hoped I would change the buttons, but for this money perfect!
Fit and quality far exceed my expectations! Will buy more items from Bronson!
Good design, good quality, great price and supported by a decent customer care team !
I LOVE this shirt. The price and fit is unbeatable. I had to size up from a 40 to a 42 but the Bronson team was quick to make the exchange no questions asked. Great service, great product.
Best vintage brand on the market!
High quality shirt
Perfect fit, better than I imagined!
This is my second order with Bronson, am impressed with the quality, design, packaging and the helpfulness of Customer Service Team !
Great quality shirt. Nice material. Fit is spot on. Great piece to ad to every denimheads collection!
Great shirt, fits pretty good and true to size, no noticeable shrinkage after several washes. I'm impressed with the quality of materials and construction and I am certain to buy more as I feel they offer excellent value for money.
Put simply, this is one of those shirts that the second you put it on, it literally feels like a favourite old shirt that you’ve owned and loved for many years.
This shirt looks great and is a great value
I’m 5’9” and about 190. I’m not in shape and was worried about the fit, especially around my gut, but a Large/42 fits great! Really comfortable with just enough heft to retain its shape. Great purchase.
5’9” / 190lbs
This shirt fits perfectly and looks great, but it is the sewing details that really show care that went into making this garment: matching stripes, the evenness of the edge stitching, the handwork look of the vent holes, and the "tails" at the ends of the serged seams. It looks like it came out of my grandfather's closet!
What a great shirt . As good as , if not better than some brands that charge well over $100 . Such a lovely soft but strong material and plenty of authentic detailing .
Great shirt well worth money definitely buy again
Was extremely surprised with the quality and styling of this shirt. Puts some of iconic Americana brands that are 3 times the price to shame.
What a good surprise ! it's a very good quality, the coton fabric is eavy, the 30's 40's style is perfect even in details like the seams. You're doing a good job !
The fabric is heavy and the overall construction looks to be very high quality with some very nice details. I am very satisfied with the purchase. Customer service was excellent as well.
love that shirt, same as explain on the website. recommand this lovely online shop very serious and professional...see you next time ...
Great, prewashed denim shirt. It’s substantial yet washed just enough to wear without dealing with that cardboard shirt feeling. Can’t beat the price either.
Fabric, fit, cut with great Details.
This was my second time ordering from Bronson and I'm definitely happy with my purchase. I order this Wabash shirt along with a few other tees and everything fit perfect! Very pleased with the quality and solid construction. The material has a nice texture and the cut is on point. It also has a nice blueish-grey color and accurate to what is displayed on the website.
Who else can beat these amazing prices?
Definitely love their products, my new favorite clothing company!
I usually wear a medium but I decided to size up for this shirt. It fit well, almost snug but good enough. The quality and build are excellent and I’ve gotten comments on the shirt and vest as well. For the best I sized up but I should have gotten my regular size, it’s a little big on me.
Cool vintage inspired wabash shirt. A little shorter model which I prefer. Size large(181 cm/85 kg).
Great quality shirt, with nice detailing. I take a 40 chest so went with the size L, but would say it fits a little snug so would go a size up next time. Would definitely recommend, and pairs well with other items from the site!
