The latest Lambert is about six years in the making. It was the first shirt we ever designed and we recently did a complete overhaul on the fit and construction. Our first change was updating the sweat proof pocket. This pocket was originally designed to hold a pack of cigarettes with an added barrier of fabric that helped keep moisture from the pack. We updated the opening with the same curve used throughout our pocket structures. The Lambert is equipped with an elbow patch and contrast fabric on the back yoke and sleeve plackets, which makes for a well finished shirt.
We dove into our archive of workwear shirts dating back to the 1930s. The body length of the shirt was reduced, while the sleeve and chest were opened up for added mobility and movement. Traditional workwear shirts have a slightly bigger chest and cross shoulder for easy wearing. The armpit opening has a clean finish construction and hangs a little lower, allowing more air flow throughout the shirt with a bigger bicep measurement. Both of the front plackets are separate pieces attached with a multi needle machine, and 1/8" chain stitch detail yields a beautiful construction. We also kept the thread runoffs made of 100% cotton. This shirt is made of an indigo based chambray from Yoshiwa Mills, Japan, and the buttons are aluminum reproduction made in Japan as well.
