  • Chambray softens with each wash, not unlike a pair of jeans.

An All American Shirt

A chambray shirt is one of those essential pieces that every guy should have. And it seems like these days, every guy does. Of course, most of the shirts have a decidedly rugged, workwear feel to them. Not surprising, since the sturdy fabric got its start as a common workman's shirt and is responsible for the term "blue collar." If you're looking to break away from the pack or simply want a shirt that's a bit more refined, the Fall River shirt is ideal. Named after the Massachusetts town that was once America's textile center, the indigo-dyed cotton shirt is cut and sewn in Philadelphia. With a tapered body, pointed chest pocket and button-down collar, it fits and feels like a regular dress shirt. The perfect pairing to everything from a knit tie and tweed blazer to a chunky cardigan and some jeans. Dressed up, dressed down—after all, what's more American than that?
