Like many modern men's staples, the workshirt, in either denim or chambray, gained widespread popularity during World War II, when it was standard issue for the US Navy. In subsequent decades, the style became a favorite among working men (hence the term "blue collar") and is now a wardrobe staple for ranch hands and office dwellers alike. The Polo Ralph Lauren version is crafted from hard-wearing 100 percent cotton twill, dyed with true indigo, and pre-washed for a timeworn feel.
