Our classic Clampdown shirt cut in 8 oz. dark green and white striped Japanese fabric. Cut and sewn in San Francisco, Calif.
A note from Tony & Pete...
We are constantly on the lookout for awesome fabrics to make shirts with integrity, shirts that will last, shirts that won't go out of style anytime soon. Our "Clampdown" Japanese striped shirt pays a bit of homage to the classic railroad stripe fabric that has been around for one hundred years. If I remember correctly, I had pants made with similar fabric as a boy, back when hippies took control of the fashion landscape in the 70's. I am certain that when my mom showed up with these, like any new pants coming my way, I hustled outside, dragged myself down the sidewalk on my knees until some proper hippie holes made their way to my new pants. Not a good idea when you have a single mom out there doing her best to provide for her two kids. Somehow, she put up with it and sewed them up with a cool patch from Valvoline or some other motor sport company and sent me back outside to bother my older sister.
I digress. Back to this Clampdown shirt of ours...
I suppose good childhood memories pave the way for big and small decisions in your personal and professional life. For us, tapping into old memories on any given day, helps us define our Tellason brand. In the end, honesty and authenticity are two of our biggest I-beams that support our every move...
A Great Train Engineer look but is also just a super unique everyday shirt. Matter of fact I have been wearing everyday since I received it. A slightly larger cut than the Topper. Unbelievably comfortable. Thanks Tellason!
Have been a Tellason customer for a few years now and I am impressed every time I pick up a new piece. This was the first shirt I bought after a few pairs of jeans and I wore it for a week straight I liked it so much. Plz consider me as your midwest brand ambassador, looking forward to my next purchase.
The fabric is dark green and white pinstripes. It's really hard to see on the website and on Instagram but it is indeed dark green. This shirt is going to make for one of the more interesting pieces in my wardrobe for some time to come. I'm looking forward to seeing what it looks like when worn in. This shirt will easily serve as a workhorse or casual piece and you can pull off a lot of dress combinations with the color. Construction and fit are what I typically expect of the Tellason standard. Worth the investment IMHO.
