A fabric with rugged workwear origins rendered in luxuriously soft flannel form and offered at our best flannel value of the year. These are the new Flannel Chambrays. Made in the USA.
Chambray in America is a workwear icon. With rugged roots, it has been re-discovered and refined many times over from the USA to Japan. We've use many styles from organic dye to monster weight. Today's version strikes a unique balance. At first glance you see the classic color on white chambray composition. It defines the chambray look. The warp color is hard to beat, an earthy and rich olive. Touching this fabric reveals the true departure - a luxuriously soft flannel finish. it's simply one of the softest fabrics we've found. That combination of chambrays rugged looks with the uniquely soft hand is a true pleasure. The fact that's it's one of our best shirting values ever makes it a must own.
This shirt is sewn up in our new Rugged style. It's designed to be the perfect style for our heavier, more rustic fabrics we run. It's a bit more casual, without being over the top. This style is really set off by two key design cues: a perfectly sized collar without buttons and two clean button closure, rounded chest pockets. These two elements lend the style it’s more casual look while their clean implementation keeps the shirt versatile. A simpler back yoke replaces the box pleat and locker loop of our Classic style. Small gusset tabs adorn the bottom hem and intricate stitching tacks down the collar stand. The Rugged style inherits the same core fit block from the updated Classic style. The moment we sewed up some flannels and heavy jacquards in this style we knew it was right.
