  • Description

    The Watertown Shirt is based off a 1950s-1960s vintage French sportswear shirt. True to mid-century cool, this shirt features a "shark-fin" open collar that's all casual. This version is summer ready, coming in at a lightweight 6.5oz cotton/linen blend chambray, woven with a dark indigo warp and a natural weft. The color is darker than your regular workwear chambray, and will fade like a champ over time.
