Carhartt Chambray Shirts for Men - Long Sleeve
Not the old Carhartt chambray
I've bought 3 or 4 Carhartt chambray shirts in the past. It’s been a while since I bought my last one because they lasted so well. They were great, solid work shirts and I couldn’t find any other company that made as good a chambray work shirt. I don't know when Carhartt changed the style but this Carhartt chambray shirt isn't the one I bought in the past. Now it's a much thinner cheaper material. Good for a hard day in the cubicle maybe. I can buy a shirt like this anywhere and for a lot less. A real disappointment. I wish they would bring back the quality chambray they make in the past.

I've been buying Carhart shirts for over 20 years for my husband who is a lineman. We have always been happy with the quailty of the materical and workmanship. We were so disppointed to find that the quality of the cotton is not what it used to be. The shirts are lightweight and don't offer has much protection . Carhart shirts used to be durable and able to take a beating...not these shirts with their inferior cotton they are about as durable as a dress shirt. Carhart please reconsider using a heavier weight cotton.

Not as good as they once were
I have worn Carhartt blue chambray shirts for years and loved them, size large long. I needed some new ones and so I checked several stores selling Carhartt shirts and none had them in stock. I ordered 3 from the Carhartt web site. The shirts are entirely changed. They are less thick, appearing to have less cotton and more polyester. The sleeves are not quite as long and the fit is trimmer. They simply are not the shirts they used to be. They look nice, but lack the old quality.

Coolest work shirt
Ever had a sunburn? Imagine having sun poisoning... the long sleeve Chambray shirts I purchased are worn every day out in the sun. Still comfortable and imagine a day oon top of a building roof during May and June? These shirts are comfortable, protect my arms and can be pressed quickly or worn right out of the dryer.
