Chambray Work Shirt - Indigo
Is there a more humble piece of clothing than the chambray shirt? Well before becoming a staple in every office “fashion” guy’s Friday rotation, the chambray shirt was utilised by labour forces through the decades. So commonplace and reliable were the shirts that they became the archetype for the working class. The “blue collar” worker? Their collar is made of sweat-stained chambray. Nowadays you’ll be wearing fluoro orange but that doesn’t roll off the tongue quite as nicely...
Orslow pay homage to this historical context with an authentic, utilitarian re-imagination of the work shirt. The cut is relaxed so you aren’t restricted by clingy fabric. The hem is straight so you don’t need to tuck it in. The spread collar stays out of the way and the two patch pockets can carry all of your essentials.
If you looked up chambray in the encyclopaedia chances are you’d be greeted with a blue swatch of fabric. There’s basically no other colour that comes to mind when talking about it. Other colours exist yes, but nothing compares to the history of this true blue-collar garment.
