A denim shirt is the perfect choice for work!

Denim work shirts are a versatile clothing item for men of all ages and sizes. They can be worn for different jobs and are a smart choice for working around the house as well.

Why Choose Denim

Denim is a great choice of material for a men's work shirt for many reasons. It is durable, comfortable and looks great plain or with a company logo on it. Denim is easy to take care of and is machine washable. Ironing is not usually needed with a denim shirt. A denim shirt can be worn alone or with a t-shirt or turtleneck under it, and it can be worn with khakis or jeans. Denim is smart choice for a work shirt -- wear one and you will see why.

Dressy Denim vs. Denim Work Shirts

Denim and denim-look button up shirts can be a great style option for men, but denim tops specifically made for work have several differences. Work shirts from denim are often made from a thicker, more durable, or more rugged denim that can stand up to many washings. Reinforced stitches are also common. Metal buttons or snaps are common as these lend durability as well.

A roomier or relaxed fit that allows ease of movement while working is another common feature of these shirts, with gussets or split yokes to allow extra room for moving. While dressy denim shirts often have one pocket, work shirts typically feature two front pockets, and some even feature utility loops.
