One of my all-time favourite shirts has finally arrived!
This is the Neal Cassady Rail Road white pepper chambray shirt by a small Japanese brand called Bootlegger’s Reunion (a reference back to the speedway days.)
Pre-ordered from Speedway back in April, John and his staff were very helpful in facilitating it’s journey to Australia.
I absolutely love the pocket design, and how all points of stress are bar-tacked!
It may look simple from afar, but the overall colour scheme is quite complicated and really does make this shirt special.
The buttons are so awesome…
The chain-stitch run off tied together by myself.
The chambray fabric is quite heavy, and very slubby.
One of the better chambrays I’ve come across.
Bootleggers’ Reunion put quite a bit of effort into the paper flashers too!

Can’t wait to try them on after a wash!
