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 Evergreen Chamois color is created with a vibrant green yarn on the warp and a dark navy on the weft. Resulting in a rich jewel toned Evergreen color perfect for winter months and the holidays. Pair it with every color chino in your closet or dress it up with a pair of charcoal flannel trousers for your next holiday party.

Slightly uncomfortable fabric to wear but makes up for it with warmth.
Evan M. (Denver, CO)
It holds the color nicely, but shrunk more than my other ratio shirts so fits a bit tight and stiff now.
Peter T. (Denver, CO)
A warm, hearty work wear style fabric that is great for winter.
Taylor Z. (Lawrence, KS)
warm, a bit rigid especially after washing
Bill F. (Denver, CO)
This fabric is quite heavy—even stiffer than I had imagined. Even so, the texture of the material is super comfortable, and I look forward to breaking it in over time, while feeling good about its durability. Additionally, since I’ve got my fit dialed in, I had no problems with range of movement or mobility.
