Description
 
Only XL left in this older blue style MUSA Chambray Shirts

One hundred percent cotton chambray, along with hickory cloth, is one of the two oldest fabrics for American work shirts. Chambray shirts have never, ever been out of style, and ours is the best one on the market, with the right details:

  • Two flapped, buttoned pockets. The left one a pencil-holder.
  • Rounded unpointed collar, like Clint “Empty Chair” Eastwood used to wear in his Westerns.
  • Cut full—fits fat guys.
  • Tagua nut buttons stitched on four-hold buttons with red-thread in an X.
  • Rounded cuff uncorners. They’re harder to sew but look better. Especially buttoned. You can’t have a button-down chambray shirt, and chambray is floppy enough so that the points bend. A round-tipped collar fixes that, which I’m guessing is why Clint “What was I thinking?” Eastwood wore round-tipped collars.

They came to us packed in plastic sacks, folded ten at a time, thanks a lot. Even so, they cost us $40—probably $10 more than the Made In China USA Olympic team opening ceremonies uniforms cost Ralph Lauren. You can find chambray shirts selling for that or less (although, now and then, for up to $100) when you let your fingers do the shopping. It’s unlikely that we’ll ever do these again, seriously. It is a major hassle, and projects such as this are beginning to feel like my own personal indulgences, not actually good for business. Although, it is gratifying to see such nice shirts. They’re fine for riding, yes.

They come to you loosely folded, no pins, cardboard, white dainty paper, or congratulatory hang tag and invitation to please like us on Facebook and Twitter.

Sizing: They fit big so normal shirt sizes ought to do if you like them big and baggy. BUY A SIZE DOWN if you want a more traditional fit. Wash and dry and they’ll shrink some, being all cotton. If you're a medium tshirt, get the small.

Great shirt (with busting buttons). August 13, 2013
Reviewer: Aaron Young from The Dalles, OR United States  
I bought a size L as soon as these came out. I loved the fit and feel of the fabric as well as all the little details in the item description. This instantly became my favorite shirt. However, like the other reviewers mentioned, the buttons began cracking in half and falling apart after a few times in the wash, which kind of makes you a bit miffed after paying $80. Other than the horrible buttons it's a great shirt.

Buttons? February 24, 2013
Reviewer: john demarco from dearborn, MI United States  
Washed it once and lost two buttons! Scared to wash again... might fall apart! Hope the same people making the shirts aren't making the bikes! Yikes! $80 bucks! Funny... how you knock Clint then use his name to try and sell your shirts?

Brilliant! February 11, 2013
Reviewer: Jeff from Silver Spring, MD United States  
I suppose I'm a generation or two closer to our primate ancestors with arms a bit longer than most men. I typically have to buy 'tall' long-sleeve shirts if I want them to fit properly in the sleeve. I am extremely pleased to find that this shirt fits my arms wonderfully, which is excellent as this is a superb, comfortable shirt, with an interesting style and quality looking and feeling construction. I'm strongly considering buying another.
*** update *** Can you spare a button brother? After 4 -5 runs through the wash, two of the buttons have broken in half - one at the bottom of the shirt, and here's mud in yer eye - the spare button broke. Fragile buttons now have mismatched friends on this beloved shirt.
