I know we say this again and again, but this is a true classic. Hardy chambray shirts were the workforce shirt used by everyone from US Naval Sailors, railroad workers out west, to grainbasket farmers and their families. Loved by Paul Newman in "Cool Hand Luke" and evolved into a Rivera staple in the 60s and 70s. Chambray pairs equally well with blue jeans as it does with khakis and suitings. The Wythe chambray used indigo dyed yarns chosen carefully for their irregular slubs to retain the same character as the original chambrays that had to last for years and years without wearing out or growing thin. The workshirt has all the features youd expect from early 20th century workshirts, like two large front pockets, triple needle overlocked stitching, side seam gussets, and a throat latch. Natural corozo nut buttons dyed a light indigo blue really bring this shirt up a notch while still retaining the feeling of the original workshirts.
The "Distressed and Sunfaded" colorway is based on an actual shirt pulled from a Kentucky farmhouse that had seen years and years of hard work in the sun. The fade and wear patterns were carefully replicated for an authentic look and feel.
