When it comes to reproduction chinstrap chambray shirts, there aren't very many colors to choose from unless, of course, you're paying the exorbitant fees for those offered by our friends overseas. Otherwise, you're limited to the standard indigo and gray offered Stateside. It’s obvious I stand behind this shirt, because after my review of the white J.Crew chinstrap chambray shirt, I was turned on to this new color and just had to have it. I hope they don't stop here - let's go the full color spectrum!

This is another great shirt with the qualities that echo my last review. The color is true to what the website shows and is a must for any vintage/retro workwear wardrobe. I was pleasantly surprised at the use of selvage on this already great shirt.  The fit on this shirt is as true to a vintage shirt as any retro shirts I've worn.

The real pleaser is the price!  Get 'em while you can.

Here are the measurments - Small:
Chest (from side to side at pit accross front - not seam to seam): 21"
Shoulder (from shoulder seam accross upper back) : 17 7/8"
Sleeve (from shoulder seam down to cuff end): 25 1/4"
Length (from back collar seam down back to hem): 29 1/2"
