Blue Smudged Gingham Shirt – Working Style




Chris Dobbs began selling made-to-measure shirts door-to-door in 1987; he initially did this as a way of filling in time between the end of his business degree and the commencement of his career, this fill-in activity was the very beginning of Working Style.



Since then, Chris Dobbs and his fellow directors, Tim Dobbs and Andrew Cole have guided and shaped Working Style to become a legend in and for New Zealand Menswear. Working Style is characterised by their ability to make a man feel “distinctly dapper, but [with] the underlying feeling that he could do a valve grind at short notice if required.”



If this is what you’re after, Working Style has got you covered.



Accessibility quick facts: 


Cotton. Roomy fit, standard armhole size.


The collar of this shirt is a Cutaway collar. A Cutaway Collar is wide and the points of the collar are directed back towards the shoulders.


Buttons down the centre of the top, as is classic for a suiting shirt. These buttons are white and small (standard shirt size) they run from underneath the collar until the hem.


The cuffs on the top are Single Mitered Cuffs. The minted cuff refers to a method of joining two perpendicular pieces at a 45-degree angle. Our model wears his sleeves pushed up for a casual style and for his accessibility preferences, but the Mitered Cuff is considered among the dressiest of cuffs due to the structure the cut achieves.


There are also two button details at the bottom edge of the point of the collar of this shirt. One button on each side of the collar. These buttons are the same style as the buttons down the center.




Alex wears this shirt by Working Style, and it is a classic shirt with buttons down the centre which runs from below the collar until the hem of the shirt, this shirt is roomy and would not be restrictive if you were pushing your mobility aids. The cuffs at the hem of the sleeves keep the fit to the arm slimming, still roomy, yet not too wide that it would be annoying if you were pushing your wheelchair.

The buttons down the center and at the collar are standard size, and if you struggle with dexterity, you might prefer some help with these. As for getting on and off, this shirt is cotton and as previously mentioned is roomy, accordingly, you will have some space to move the shirt around you to get your arm in.

If you struggle with leaning forwards out of your wheelchair, you might prefer another kind of shirt – as you would need to lean forward to get this around you.
