Gitman Vintage drops this cotton linen shirt in blue chambray. We’ve seen tons of Gitman Vintage shirting in the past but the wash is so perfect for the summer that we just couldn’t resist. The detailing’s really well done and of course the course is spot on. It’s slightly fitted, which is exactly the approach you want to take in this hot weather. Close to the skin but not too close.
This natural indigo dyed chambray denim shirt comes Japanese label Factotum. We don’t see much of their product in the states but we’re not surprised Blue in Green is the spot carrying them. After all, they’re known for carrying hard-to-find brands on the regular. They don’t slack on quality either, just look at this denim shirt. It’s really well made and features left chest pocket and an inner concealed pocket on the right.
From Helmut Lang comes this beige-colored overshirt in a lightweight twill fabric. It features signature belt strap on the inside and two-button adjustable cuffs. The fit is what attracts us most as Helmut Lang’s cut is known to be fairly slim and couple that with the soft shell, we get a summer shirt that’ll work through an array of settings.
You really can’t go wrong with this pickup. The J.Press/Cremieux line has proven to be a successful as it’s filled with some really well made experimental pieces but doesn’t forget to bring out some timeless essentials. This faded chambray button down comes in a perfect shade of blue for the summer that can be worked with plenty of pieces.

Penny Stock is known for offering up affordable gear that’s modern and extremely wearable. This chambray button down is a great example of all the right things the brand’s doing. Their fit is not extremely slim and for the summer, this is a great thing.
From Billy Reid comes the Jonathan jacket in a heavyweight chambray gaberdine shell. The light blue shell is perfect for the warmer months ahead and will prove to be one of your more versatile pieces. The details really set this Italian-made blazer apart as well, and the construction’s solid. The back features side vents and as well as a banded waist.
I’ve been looking for a chambray tie for the spring and this piece from Apolis may be our winner, folks. It’s the perfect shade of indigo and is 2 1/8 inches at its widest point. This will be the most versatile tie you’ll own. Ever. Don’t hold me to that because dudes are dishing out some tremendous neckwear these days, so who knows what’s next. This is a must-have though.
