Our Clampdown shirt using a beautiful Cone Mills White Oak Dobby 100% cotton fabric.  Double flap chest pockets.  Cut and sewn in San Francisco, Ca.  Fit Guide



We had a run of this beautiful Dobby fabric made by Cone Mills White Oak about 10 years ago and recall it being one of our more interesting fabrics we have ever used for shirts. Late last year, we stumbled on some more so we gobbled it up and recut it in our Clampdown double pocket long sleeve shirt.

The unique characteristic about this fabric is easy to see when new but the personality really comes out with a lot of wear and washes later on as it grows old, just like our favorite pair of blue jeans.

This is probably the last bit of this so once this is gone, it will be gone gone.

    Dobby Clampdown

    I bought this shirt eight months ago. It's a killer. I thought it was great out of the box and it just gets better. I wear it at work, traveling, hanging out, etc. The color is a grayish/silver/blue & the material is unique and excellent. Get one!

    White Oak Dobby Clampdown

    This is a fantastic fabric. I am 6’ 220lbs and ordered the XXL which was a bit big to begin especially in sleeve length. I washed one cycle delicate, warm against label instructions and hung to air dry after which fit is perfect. I measured 1” shrinkage in shoulder, 0.5 in sleeve and 0.25 in overall length. It’s a beautiful, unique shirt.

    Best Shirts in My Closet (Tellason)

    Posted by Rhett Dunlap on 7th Mar 2022

    Big meeting? Put on the Tellason. Big interview? Tellason. Big date? The Tellason is sure to end up on the bedroom floor. When you want to look good, but still feel like you can go outside to chop wood...wear a Tellason. When you want to feel like a man and dress like a million bucks...damn straight--it's a Tellason. Long-lasting. Well-fitted. Classic lines. Tellason.

    What a great shirt, cool pattern

    When looking for a unique shirt, this is it. I love heritage styled clothing and this fits the bill. The texture and color is great and the fit is modern, but not too slim. I am 6'5" and the XXL is a perfect fit with surprisingly long enough sleeves

    Clampdown Shirt - Great fabric and fit

    Posted by JG on 9th Jan 2022

    Lots of things to like; durable fabric, great fit, nice stitching details - a quality piece made in the USA. I typically have a hard time finding a shirt that has adequate sleeve length without getting too large in the body, and this one nails it. I’m 6’-1” 175 lbs, and the size L is perfect.

    All I can say is that the pictures don't do this shirt justice. It's got so much character. Fits like all other Tellason shirts I've purchased.

    Same great material

    Posted by Ryan on 4th Jan 2022

    Tellason used to sell a version of this shirt with only one front pocket. It was one of my all-time favorites that I slowly fazed out because I got a stain on it I could not remove. So I'm pretty stoked that they came out with this version with two pockets and I can one again rock this fabric/pattern. In the pictures it almost looks black and white, but it's not. It's indigo. You won't find a shirt like this anywhere else. The fit is your basic Tellason American sizes. I'm 6'1 and a Large is just the right length to not look sloppy when untucked.
