Mens Workwear

Embroidered Western Shirt

Universal Works has fused two of our favourite shirts - the Chambray Shirt and the Western Shirt - to create this instant classic. This bad boy is comprised of utilitarian indigo chambray, featuring fine floral embroideries on the collar, sleeves, and where yokes would have gone - plus a flap pocket on the front.

Watch Cap

A high-quality beanie is a crucial component of our attire. We adore the ones that rest above the ear, reminiscent of the classic US Navy fashion. However, these can be donned in various ways, whether with a solitary fold or dual folds.

This crafted beanie is created with a ribbed pattern utilising 100% cotton thread. Its weight is light, and the texture is incredibly soft to the touch.

S/S V Neck Overshirt

Numerous modern fashion pieces that we adore today are inspired by retro uniforms, work attire, or military outfits.

The latest addition to Universal Works' collection is a button-up shirt that takes its design cues from classic baseball jerseys. Made from mid-weight indigo chambray, the garment is distinguished by UW's distinctive curved chest pocket.

Ideal for layering, this shirt can be paired with a long-sleeved white tee for a trendy ensemble - check out our men’s tees for more!

Fatigue Pant

Crafting the ideal trousers is an art form, and we are convinced that Universal Works is exceptionally skilled in creating various styles.

The Fatigue Pant, for instance, is composed of long-lasting Twill material that will develop a beautiful patina over time. Think of it as a more sophisticated and refined version of military trousers - perfect for everyday wear and adaptable to any season or occasion.

Note that this pant runs large, and we recommend selecting one size smaller than your usual size. It features a high waist and a straight leg cut for a comfortable and stylish fit.

Daybrook Oxford Shirt

Scotland deserves our gratitude for providing the fabric utilised in this shirt. During the 19th century, four distinct shirts were created using various weaving and warp methods and were named after prominent universities - Oxford, Harvard, Yale, and Cambridge.

Universal Works' Daybrook shirt is a contemporary spin on a classic button-down shirt. It features a slightly roomier body and a collar that's a tad longer.

This shirt is made entirely of 100% organic cotton, with a high-quality Oxford weave that's expertly woven in Portugal. Shop today at Indigo and Provisions.

Loose Sweater OC/Hemp Waffle

At I&P, we have a deep appreciation for fabric and texture, and Universal Works' sweatshirt definitely satisfies our requirements.

Crafted from a blend of organic cotton and hemp, this sweatshirt boasts a comfortable and laid-back fit, with a substantial weight that makes it ideal for layering. The earthy tone adds to its appeal, making it an excellent elevated basic.

If you prefer a more fitted look, we suggest sizing down as this sweatshirt tends to run large.

Patched Bakers Jacket

The Bakers Jacket by Universal Works is a distinctive piece that falls somewhere between a blazer and a chore coat. It was inspired by a jacket worn by the father of UW co-founder, David Keyte, who happened to be a baker, hence the name!

This season, the jacket draws inspiration from the art of patchwork repair and features chambray patches scattered throughout the garment.

This jacket is tailored in style, so we recommend selecting your true size if you prefer a smarter look, or sizing up if you want something more relaxed.

Pleated Track Pant

Crafting the ideal pair of trousers is an art form, and we firmly believe that Universal Works is exceptional at creating various styles.

The UW Track Pant, which should not be mistaken for sweatpants, is a tapered trouser that is loose-fitting with an elasticated waistband. It is comfortable yet versatile enough to be dressed up for a more sophisticated look. Using upcycled deadstock fabric that has been over-dyed, these pants can be paired with a matching jacket to create a stylish two-piece outfit.

Note that this pant tends to run large, and we recommend selecting one size smaller than your usual size for the best fit.

Easy Overshirt

At I & P, we have a particular fondness for workwear-inspired overshirts and jackets.

Universal Works' Easy Overshirt is their take on this classic piece. Lightweight and unstructured, it looks fantastic worn over a t-shirt or layered over another shirt for a more intriguing look.

Featuring a simple, relaxed cut and two front patch pockets, this overshirt is versatile and pairs well with any outfit.

This version is made from marled cotton with a slight stretch and brushed hand feel, and the fabric has been upcycled by overdyeing deadstock fabric. There are also matching pants in the same fabric, allowing you to create a two-piece ensemble.

Military Chino

Crafting the perfect pair of trousers is an art, and Universal Works is undoubtedly skilled at creating exceptional styles. Their Military Chino is a prime example of this.

Constructed from sturdy twill fabric, this chino is designed to endure and age gracefully.

It features a refined and sophisticated take on traditional workwear pants, making it an everyday classic that can be worn in any season or situation.

Please note that this pant runs large, so we suggest sizing down by one size from your usual fit.

Classic UW Bandana

The history of bandanas is a rich and diverse one, with a variety of people across different walks of life having worn them. Whether you choose to tie it around your neck or tuck it in your pocket, the Universal Works bandana is a versatile and stylish accessory. Made from soft and lightweight cambric cotton, it features a custom traditional print that is both simple and elegant.

Soft Wool Fleece Zip Gilet

Universal Works' Wool Fleece knitwear has become a popular choice among our customers, and it's easy to see why! This vest is designed with a comfortable and loose fit, featuring a straight cut and a two-way zip for versatile styling options. Warm and functional, it's the perfect layering piece for colder days and nights. The fabric is dense, lofty, and lightweight with a soft touch - making it suitable for both indoor and outdoor wear. The super classy check pattern adds a touch of sophistication to the design.

Bakers Jacket

According to Universal Works' founder David Keyte, the classic work jacket remains the original and the best. It was designed as a combination of French, English and American work jackets, inspired by the jacket that David's father - a baker - used to wear when he was a child.

As the name suggests, "ripstop" fabric is reinforced to increase its strength against tears, abrasions and rips. The fabric has a soft and dry hand feel, and it features small ripstop squares as its signature design.

Hi Water Trouser

This cropped-length trouser has a playful name and is designed to show off a little ankle and sock action. With a loose and super casual fit, it is perfect for those looking for a relaxed style.
