The Apparatchik's Apparel is a community-created miscellaneous item item for the Heavy. It is a long-sleeved shirt with its sleeves rolled up, replacing the Heavy's default shirt under his vest and Minigun bandolier.

The Apparatchik's Apparel was originally contributed to the Steam Workshop under the name "Lumberjack Shirt".

There are four unique styles for the Apparatchik's Apparel, each one applying a different pattern to the shirt. The second style, "Blood Bin", replaces the default pattern with a horizontal stripe pattern. "Investor", the third style, applies a vertical stripe pattern, and the fourth, aptly named "J.R. Gyle", applies an argyle pattern.
