I’m not going to explain myself, but the chambray shirt is the security blanket of menswear, and right now I think we all could use a security blanket in some form or another. For those currently missing that blanket, Epaulet’s Chainstitch Chambray Shirt is a good candidate.
(There are times to consider investing in a flower-printed V-neck sweater made of satin and velour—for me, that time was January—and there are times when continuity is greatly appreciated. This is probably the latter.)
Made from a Japanese-woven 5 oz. cotton chambray fabric and dyed with a vibrant indigo, this point-collar shirt features a single patch c at the chest, button cuffs, a versatile mid-length hem and a slim fit. And sure, it’s weird to talk about versatility in an era when sweatpants have become the jackknife of any closet (by jackknife I mostly mean the “star of the one-garment show”), but one day this will all be over and chambray will be needed.
Available for $125 at Epaulet
