New Hickory Stripe Flex Logger ½ Zip Shirt
With classic vintage styling and forward-looking construction, the FiveBrother® WorkWear New Hickory Stripe Flex Logger Shirt is almost two shirts in one. It has the durability of traditional denim work shirts and the comfort and convenience of a casual pullover.
The New Hickory Stripe Flex Logger Shirt stands apart from other work shirts by replacing the classic button-down front with the convenience of a zipper closure.
From Seersucker to Hickory Stripe
As the English began emigrating to the American colonies, the blue-and-white-striped seersucker from India made its way to the United States, where it became especially popular in the hot and humid American South. Its fabric is light, and its design was seen as stylish. Seersucker suits eventually became a staple in the closets of Southern gentlemen.
The seersucker design soon transformed into the hickory stripe. The blue stripes became dark blue, navy, or indigo, and the light cotton became a little more denim-like. It was still lightweight and started being worn by farmers, loggers, carpenters, and railroad men.
To keep railway employees distinct from each other, the workers and engineers wore hickory stripe uniforms – porters, conductors, and station masters were assigned three-piece blue uniforms with brass buttons.
The hickory-striped engineer cap is still in use today.

Excellent quality that I remember when I wore them at the sawmill I worked at in the '80's.
