You aren’t ready for Freenote Cloth‘s Calico Chambray Shirt. It’s the American brand’s take on an updated western shirt, complete with slanted sawtooth flap pockets on the chest, and some dizzyingly bright (real) turquoise snap buttons throughout. you don’t need to give two shits about western wear to appreciate this neppy bad boy, but throw it on with your RRL raw denim, some cowboy boots, and you’ll be the king of the rodeo.
If the stones weren’t enough, this edition of Freenote’s Calico Shirt features a coarsely textured Japanese-milled chambray that has buckets of nep and character before you’ve even put it on. If gaze can be averted from the genuine turqoise, there’s more details to glue your eyes onto, including double-needle stitching, selvedge detail on the gussets, western-style yokes, and western imagery on the tag.
All sewn up in the USA, this edition of the Calico is rinsed, so you might not need to size up on these. they likely won’t shrink much at all.
