Clampdown Chambray Work Shirt

(46 reviews) Write a Review

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


I worked in the Polo department at Bullock's back in 1985 and my pinner paychecks that were supposed to be spent on food and books at the SDSU bookstore often took a left turn and ended up back into the store that was paying me to sell men's clothing.

I was not completely irresponsible and had the wherewithal to select my gear that was heavily marked down. In 1985, that meant pink and turquoise rugby shirts, a bomber jacket that I did not need and some twill pants with no belt loops (just side tabs to pull tight). I remember the one full price item I sprung for in that coveted department - the classic chambray shirt. If my sister did not lose it for me I would still have it today, holes and all.

Now that Tony and I have been making clothes for 14 years, it is clear that the things we grew up with are the same things we make today. No expiration, no frills, just beautiful classics like our Clampdown Chambray Shirt.

Enjoy ya'll,

Tony Patella

    Such a solid piece of clothing! I love it’s made in the USA too. The fit and look works awesome with jeans & boots! Check out their chinos too. Too notch customer service as well! Solid all around.

    great work shirt

    great construction and materials. I like the stiffened collar and the details from cuff to elbow. I also like narrower but not slim cut of the torso. My only gripe is breast pockets not big enough (nearly, but no) for phone and notebook (I'm that guy).

    Great Chambray

    Every guy needs at least one chambray shirt in the rotation. This is a better shirt in every way. Having worn other brands, I keep coming back to the quality garments that are patterned, cut and sewn in California using great fabrics from the US, Japan and other places.

    Do yourself a favor and get this shirt. The cut is flattering and the fabric is top notch. I’m 6’2 250lbs and the 2XL fits just right.

    Very well made shirt. Shirt was slightly lighter in color than the photos, but still a great color. Very well made shirt. I'm very happy with this purchase.

    My third Tellason shirt, same high standard of craftsmanship, excellent detailing, fast shipping and I always enjoy the handwritten thank you notes I’ve received with each shipment. True small business with real handmade care and attention. Love to support clothes made in California too!
