Vintage Meets Modern

A Military Work Shirt at a Civilian Price


Uniqlo’s Military Work Shirt may be this season’s best deal. It’s the Japanese retail chain’s take on a Vietnam-era OG-107 military jacket, and the slimmed-down fit and fair price make it too tempting and accessible to turn down. Made from 100 percent cotton, the fabric is hefty yet breathable and the details are surprisingly intricate (including period-accurate buttons and trim). At $14.90, you can buy one in all three colors (green, khaki and navy) — I did, and I’ve rotated them every day for the past week in place of a blazer. Style doesn’t come cheaper — or better — than this.
