We bat the fashion ball back and forth with quite a few folks but the the boys at DoubleButter have to be the most vociferous about their stance. More than anyone we know, they stand by their uniform and are pretty relentless implementing it every day. They sent us some pics (damn fine pics) of the standard issue DB shop uniform and as you can see, most of it has been ridden hard and put away wet more days than not. Even though its only a 2 man operation, they are so serious about sartorial shop rules they even have a 3rd kit for emergency backup (in case the welder gets a bit wily). Oh and when they aren’t hassling us about our clothes, they make some fabulous furniture, pics below.
