The blue collar work shirt can lend a pleasingly faux salt-of-the-earthness, but with everyone rocking essentially the same shirt, it's hard to pretend your earth is any saltier than the next "Dick". Take your posturing to the next level, with Blue Collar Customs.
Developed by Big Jay, a 6' 10" Urban Outfitters bouncer and "Eviction Specialist" for the band Black Landlord, BCC hand sews up to five patches representing escalatingly random companies and industries (plus not-your-name tag) on the front, back, and sleeves of industrial grade blue work shirts. The torso-sheathes come from thrift shops, industrial surplus outlets, and uniform stores, while a nationwide network of patch hunters unearths gems like Schweppes Racing, New York Artificial Breeders Collective, and Ortlieb's Beer, making people want to naturally breed since 1869. Big Jay's also started working with jackets (canvas or quilted), hoodies (zip or pull) and long-sleeve shirts in an array of colors, so even in the chillier months you can land chicks who know Columbia Gas meter readers are hung like mules.
Still in its infancy, BCC isn't exactly an overnight turnaround affair; depending upon specificity and availability, production can take a month or more, and while basic stuff (PBR, etc) can be had for $45, rarer patch finds (involving say, Glock, or Remington) can fetch well beyond two bills -- so you may need several unlikely jobs just to afford one.
