“Perfect, nice weight, soft hand”
James in Montclair, NJ
“My go to COVID laid back work shirt. Incredibly soft feel and really comfortable. Would order another when this becomes available.”
Michael in Bryn Mawr, PA
“This fabric doesn’t winkle too easy once its ironed, and is pretty soft for a chambray. but don’t expect "t-shirt soft". Its a good alternative to oxford cloth for looking casual but still put together. It irons well, but out …of the dryer will definitely need an iron run over it. It looks good with light or dark khaki, green chinos or jeans that are darker.”
Carl in Fort Lee, VA
Woven and indigo dyed in Japan, this selvage chambray is the real deal. Made in small batches on shuttle looms, a technique pioneered in America but perfected by Japanese mills, the slightly uneven weave gives this light indigo chambray incredible visual texture. The indigo dye will also fade out over time, meaning this shirt gets better the more you wear it. Since this fabric is woven with an indigo-dyed thread in the warp and white thread in the weft, out of the box it appears somewhat dark, but after washing the indigo deposits on the white thread, giving the shirt a softer, more even blue tone. As such, only wash with like colors. It will also soften up and break in significantly after the first wash, like the classic chambray shirt you always wanted. Definitely go with a soft collar, cuff and placket on this one; our Soft President Spread collar gives it a Western shirt vibe, or go for a Colorado Button Down for a solid casual look.
