Simply put: this is the best chambray shirt that we've ever offered. The Japanese cloth is indigo dyed and woven on narrow vintage shuttle looms. The resulting garment has a perfect blue shade, a crisp hand, and awesome selvedge details. This is an heirloom piece that will serve you for many seasons to come.
This 7oz pure cotton fabric is named "Hisashi" in recognition of its long life and purposeful determination. It starts out a deep indigo blue, but will achieve a beautiful fade with repeated wash and wear. The cloth is a touch heavier than the typical oxford shirt and it's comfortable for year round wear.
We use the selvedge detail on both the inside shirt placket and the small gussets at the bottom of the tail. These subtle details are only really visible to the wearer, so they don't interfere with the versatile look of this garment. But they'll serve as a reminder of how rad this exclusive Japanese fabric truly is!
Each Chainstitch Shirt has our signature athletic slim fit. It has a compact unlined spread collar that cuts a great profile when worn open. Its side seams are secured with a long continuous "chainstitch" line of thread - which is unparalleled for strength and finished with a functional gusset. The sturdy double-track placket is closed with genuine corozo nut buttons. One patch pocket sits on the chest. The mid-length tail allows you to wear the shirt tucked or untucked. It's a rugged style that works seamlessly in our collection and can be dressed up or down.
All measurements are shown in inches. "Chest" is measured from one seam at the armpit to the other. "Shoulder" is measured from one shoulder seam to the other. "Sleeve" is measured from the shoulder seam to the cuff. "Length" is measured from the base of the collar (where it attaches to the shirt) to the bottom of the tail.
