Clampdown Chambray Work Shirt

(30 reviews) Write a Review

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


Jack and Paul didn't have a choice about what they were going to wear on any given day whilst behind bars. They were handed a stack of durable clothes that were easy to wash and Paul was left to go out and crush a bowl of 50 hard boiled eggs and Jack went out there to stir things up and to figure out how to be friends with a silent big fella. Juicy Fruit gum was the bridge that connected their friendship. Just shows you how you cannot sleep on the subtleties of life...

Jacques Cousteau, on the other hand, had choices and from what I saw as a kid. He buttoned up his chambray shirt and red beanie on the daily and went out there (and under there) to tackle the beautiful life under the sea. I didn't miss an episode of "The Undersea World of Jacques Cousteau" and got a bit obsessed with his adventures and gear which led me to my own love of the ocean and the balance if gives us.

With that, we tip our hat to this classic work shirt.

Thanks for wearing quality,

    Great company and shirt. Be aware of sizing. I’m 6’2” 235lbs with a 48” chest. I’m normally an XL in most shirts but the XXXL fits perfectly, especially after one wash and air dry. I can get by with an XXL if I want a slimmer fit but tends to pull through the back and chest.

    Clampdown shirt

    Well made shirt overall. Made in USA. Sleeve length is perfect for someone that is 6’1”. The upper sleeves are a bit loose however I could probably use some dumbbell curls. Two minor gripes - the cuff flaps are missing the mid button. No idea why as the other tellason chambray has one. The flap button is nice to have when rolling up the sleeves. I’ll take to my tailor for sewing a new button in there. The pockets are symmetrical which is a must for me.

    I really like this shirt. The build quality and material on this shirt are great. Unfortunately, I had to return is as I ordered the wrong size, and my size is not in stock. I hope XXL is available soon.

    The fit...I'm 6' 205 lb and relatively athletic, the XL is the right amount of tight across the chest and then is properly tapered down to the waist. The look / feel...I LOVE this shirt it became my favorite as soon as I put it on. I wore it to my office, received completely unexpected compliments. Excellent shirt, I cannot recommend it more highly.

    Quality of fabric and overall construction is undeniable. Have a feeling my son will be knicking this shirt from me when he’s big enough.

    Nice fabric and very well made. The fit is great. Be aware that it is a trimmer fit, not a fuller (i.e., looser) cut shirt. Classic styling. Reminds me of the workshirts I wore as a kid in the ‘70’s! Service and shipping is excellent. Thanks Tellason!

    New Classic Great Fabric

    Posted by Nik on 7th Mar 2022

    This is such a nice shirt. Wonderful fabric, crispy and light. Great color. I like the slightly over sized buttons. The stitching details are well done. This shirt should last a long time.
