Clampdown Chambray Work Shirt

(8 reviews) Write a Review

Clampdown work shirt.  100% cotton raw 5.5 oz. Japanese chambray.  Cut and sewn in San Francisco.


When it came time to design our second shirt eight or nine years ago (Topper was first), we wanted to put together a proper work shirt. Of course, Clampdown was a natural as the name of the shirt. The Clampdown shirt has two large pockets to carry pens, knives, kazoos, string cheese, bottle openers, screwdrivers, etc. We've always worn ours untucked before that was even a thing. In the past we've made the Clampdown in raw selvedge denim, various colors of heavyweight canvas and a few different plaids. Now we have it in a beautiful 5.5 oz Japanese chambray. This version has white thread and buttons. So when you start wearing blue and brown and you're working for the Clampdown, we recommend our chambray Clampdown for the blue part of your wardrobe.

    This is the version I've been hoping for. My favorite shirt in my favorite fabric. This chambray is amazing right out of the box and I imagine it’s going to age beautifully. I can see wearing this one everyday of the week.

    The perfect chambray

    This is one of my all time favorite shirts from Tellason. The fabric, fit, color, and construction are all exceptional. The white stitching and white buttons lend a classic appeal. The stitching is immaculate, with the sleeves and side seams triple needle stitched. The fabric has a soft hand and breathes well so it is well suited for warmer weather.

    Really great shirt. I’m a big guy and the xxl is perfect for me. The quality of the fabric is outstanding and the stitching is sturdy. I would definitely by again.

    Like every other Tellason product, just so well made - perfect cut and fit. It’s clear they take so much pride in their clothing. I don’t even bother shopping around anymore. Love these guys - 100% the best denim brand in the world.

    Shirt arrived on St. Patrick's Day and wore out that evening with friends. Many great compliments. Love the contrasting white buttons with chambray. It is more fitted than another recent Medium Tellason shirt I purchased. Looks fantastic and well made. You guys do San Francisco proud! Cheers.

    I purchased the shirt as a gift for my most discerning fashionista buddy. As with all of the Tellason pieces I own, which is several, this shirt is meticulously crafted, super good looking and I wish I had one myself!!! Thank you Pete and Tony for another great example of your craftsmanship!!!!

    The color is spot on and the Japanese Chambray fabric has some tooth but is breathable. Great texture and of course great fit. Could be my favorite Tellason shirt of all time and I own many. Classic and timeless. This fabric is special. You need one I promise!
