The Boyfriend shape is everything you love about a man's shirt, cut slimmer to flatter a woman. It has a slightly oversized collar and cuffs, longer tail and front pocket for receipts, bobby pins, or an emergency breath mint. Tuck it in or don't — we love it worn out with the hem out over trousers, jeans of all kinds, short skirts, or cutoff shorts. This one is made up in an incredible Italian chambray that's made with real indigo for perfect color and real linen for perfect crispness. It's actually our second-best-selling shirt. Everyone loves a runner-up.
With any true indigo fabric (like this one,) there’s a risk of color transfer — called crocking — in which some of the blue rubs off on light-colored fabrics or your skin. This effect is most pronounced the first time you wear it, but it usually comes out in the washing machine or the shower. It’s inherent to natural indigo dye, and it’s part of what makes those garments fade so beautifully over time. Still, for the first few wears, we recommend laundering separately and staying away from light-colored upholstery.
