Headquartered in Kelowna and manufactured in Vancouver, 6AM Workshirts is a company making men’s dress/work shirts, with a cool twist. As their website puts it, two of the main issues with traditional dress shirts are the fit (normal shirts have a cheaper cut, and usually require tailoring to fit properly, but create too tight a fit), and sweat (anyone who’s worn a dress shirt knows how this is an issue). Their solution: Make a shirt with a smaller waist than chest, and add secondary material stretch/sweat panels, as used on cycling shirts. They fit better, they’re machine washable, they mitigate pit stains, and they’re made right here in Canada. Definitely a win-win-win-win in my book.
