The chamois shirt is a workwear legend, made famous by American brands of decades past. The name “chamois” comes from the leather of the same name, a soft and suede-like leather from mountainous goats in Europe. The handfeel was so desirable that fabric-makers began to replicate it in a heavy-yet-soft brushed cotton.
To make our version, we found a vintage 70’s-era version and replicated the weight and handfeel with our mill in Portugal. At a beefy 9 oz. brushed cotton that will soften over time, you can wear it as an overshirt (consider creating a more generously-sized Blueprint) or all on it’s own.
The Dusk Blue Chamois color is created with a light blue color in the warp and a dark navy in the weft. Resulting in a washed out jewel toned blue perfect for your favorite pair of jeans or try them with your olive chinos for a winter ready look.

It's very much like a chamois. But it wears in very comfortably. Stays tucked in well and looks good untucked.

It has become one of my favorite shirts. Thicker, warmer, and better fitting than my LL Bean chamois. Would love to see the Evergreen color back in stock, or a charcoal gray to replace my LL Bean one mentioned above. Also make sure to size up a bit for this fabric since it shrinks a bit and you will like the versatility to use it as an overshirt.

Heavy and warm. If its above 30, I can wear it instead of a coat. Love it.
