A genuine classicly goodlooking chambray shirt should be a staple of every man (and woman's) wardrobe so we have created a minimalist version made from organic cotton chambray.
For the uninitiated chambray is a plain, closely woven frabric made from 2-ply cotton which has a slight luster. The vertical warp thread is dyed while the weft (horizontal) thread is usually unbleached or white which gives it a speckled denim look. There is normally a white selvedge edge. It can be woven into a number of weights but is classically a shirt weight.
More recently used as a workwear fabric, it is often a light blue but can also be found in an array of colours. Due to its strength the ability to wash and wear chambray for a very long time, when well made a chambray shirt can become so faded it can appear white over time.
We are adding the final touches to our new addition to the Cock & Bull Menswear range. Each of the shirts have been in collaboration with a seasoned tailor and are finished with a stand collar.
We produced in 4 sizes: S, M, L & XL with a finished length at the back of between 80-83 cms.
