Navy but not a black-navy, this made in England button down collar from Drakes is a 60/40 wool-cotton blend. Not denim but definitely overdyed blue (indigo?), this shirt has and likely will continue to fade slightly in areas of wear. Kind of like Viyeel but thicker and more saturated color. Originally (tagged) a 16, a half dozen cold washes and hang dries have resulted in shrinkage to:
Neck: 15.75"
Chest: 22.75"
Sleeves: 33.5"
I am confident that it has shrunk all that it will shrink. Unless you really wash it hot or tumble dry hot...
I wish I had purchased a size or 2 up from usual... awesome quality shirt with white mother of pearl buttons. This is from last winter's collection but I think Drakes shirt are going for a coupe hundred bucks currently. Please let me know if you have any questions, thanks for looking!
Good color representation:

No flash:


Examples of fading and material close-up with flash and no flash: (that is a small crease on the collar from storage, will wear or wash right out)
