Women's Chambray Workshirt
Our first shirt. Cut with a loose fit and constructed from a soft cotton chambray in a washed indigo hue. A versatile and practical cloth that’s the perfect shirt weight and is easy to wear through the seasons. This is a shirt that will get better as it ages, softening as it wears in and starts to show its own patina. As this is our first small run of shirts, there will be a limited number available. Shipping at the end of August.
A timeless workshirt made from a 4.5oz light indigo Italian chambray. 100% cotton. Washed for a vintage look and feel. Two chest pockets with button closure. Curved hem. Single button mitred cuff. Twin needle contrast stitching throughout. Fisheye corozo nut buttons. Soft pointed collar. Made in a small, family run shirt factory in Northern Portugal.
Fabric & Care
Our chambray work shirt is made from a 4.5oz, 100% cotton, chambray fabric that has been woven by the brilliant Albini mill in Italy. This is a lightweight and breathable shirting fabric that’s very durable and will keep developing its patina as it’s worn and washed over time. Following the making of your shirt, it has been given a light wash so it will arrive soft and feeling like an old friend. Wash at 30’C. Do not tumble dry. Iron inside out.
Our women’s chambray workshirt is a relaxed and loose a-line cut that is as flattering as it is comfy. Wear it buttoned up with your favourite jeans, or open over a vest and shorts. If in doubt, we’d recommend taking your usual size, or check out our measurement chart for more guidance.
Our model and good friend El, is 5ft 6 and is wearing a Small. She wears an Small in all of our other jackets.

BE A WEAR TESTER
We are looking for a small group of wear testers. As this is our first shirt, we'd like your help. For this small run, we'd like you to wear them in and give us lots of feedback. We know it's a great shirt (we've been wearing ours for a couple of years now). But with your help, we want to know how to make it even better. We don’t want you to just wear our shirt, we want you to put it to work. So, as a small thank you for participating and helping us out, this first run of shirts will be available for an introductory price of £85. This is a small experiment we're running, so we don't know if we'll be doing it again. This might be our first shirt of many. Or it maybe it will be the last. It's all down to you.
OUR FIRST SHIRT
Making shirts wasn’t part of our plan. But then we found this beautiful chambray fabric from Albini, an Italian fabric mill who have been making the finest shirting fabrics for over 140 years. Originally we made a shirt each, just for ourselves. We wore and wore them and they got better with time. They made it into our photoshoots, layered under jackets and it didn’t go unnoticed. You kept asking for them, and so did our family. We managed to get the last few rolls of fabric the mill had in stock and our factory agreed to make a small run for us before they closed for the summer holidays. We’re excited to see what you think of them.
A WARDROBE WORKHORSE
Chambray is an iconic fabric that dates back centuries and has stood the test of time as a versatile and practical cloth. And because of how it’s woven, it’s both breathable and durable.
AS TIMELESS AS THEY GET
We’ve always thought of the chambray work shirt as a wardrobe staple. It’s dependable, adaptable and makes for classic pairing with pretty much anything in your wardrobe.
THE CALIFORNIA OF EUROPE
Our shirts are hand made in a factory nestled away on a mountain side in Guimarães, Portugal. It’s a maker town. The factory is a small family run business that has been going for the last 30 years, specialising in shirts. They have a track record for supporting the underdogs. We’re proud to have our shirts made by them.
