1940's-1950's era Blue Herringbone Twill Work Shirts

The Cleveland Overall Co. 1950's era union made blue hbt work shirt in unworn, one wash condition
Neck tag with old style Cleveland script  
Washington "Dee Cee" 1940's era blue hbt sanforized cotton work shirt in deadstock condition 
Machine loomed neck tag
Nice 40's style pointed collar
 Original hang tag
Side gussets with selvedge edge
Another 1940's era "Dee Cee" hbt work shirt picked up at the same time as the one pictured above. Both were deadstock, this one had more obvious storage soil on the fold lines so I decided to wash it & wear it for work
Just starting to show some nice contrast after a few washes. Hoping that it will continue to fade with use (contrary to the claims on the neck tag) in order to better hide the fold lines
