Orgueil Lightweight Chambray Early Workshirt (Black Pepper)

Inspired by early 1930s work shirt, this is a truly unique style!

From the elegantly curved chest pockets to the asymmetrical, curved lower placket, this is a great piece for fans of workwear history and innovation.

The WWI style, iron buttons will age to a shiny look and contrast nicely against the thread dyed black pepper fabric. This fabric is slowly woven using vintage machines and will only get better with time, the super soft texture feels great against the skin and is great for any season.
