We've already seen Taylor Stitch do some pretty amazing things with chambray involving hemp and the like. Now the S.F.-based apparel artisans have come up another take on our favorite shirting material, dubbed slub chambray

This is a lightweight 5-oz. custom organic cotton, with a touch of polyester which manifests itself a white slub thread that "traces its way through the fabric," giving the utilitarian cloth a "unique, tweed-like sophistication" without adding any bulk.

The unique fabric has been dyed and cut into one of the brand's signature button-down silhouettes to create an instant classic: the Jack in Olive Slub Chambray. The slim-fitting sensation is ideal for those who "appreciate the crisp structure of a tailored oxford but are looking for an extra dose of texture," the brand notes.

And in the pleasing form of the Jack it is "built like a tank, with sturdy double-needle flat-felled seams—the same construction you’ll find on a pair of jeans"—rounded cuffs, and rugged horn buttons providing the coup de grace.
