Japanese Chambray

  • Hiroshima

    Chambray is often mistaken for denim, and it’s easy to see why. Both were invented in France, and both are indigo-dyed. With this in mind and considering our denim mill’s expertise, it made perfect sense that we’d stumble upon incredible chambray in Japan.

  • Same But Different

    Chambray and denim do have similarities, but they are very much different fabrics. Denim’s weave is twill, making it a rougher fabric. However chambray is a plain weave, giving it a smoother feel.

  • Rugged But Light

    Having the tightly twisted yarn and indigo dye of denim coupled with a plain weave means you get the best of both worlds: a cloth that is durable like denim, yet much more breathable.

  • Look Closer

    From far away, chambray will look light indigo blue. However, once you look closer you will see that the weave of blue and white thread creates a subtle two-tone criss-cross pattern.

Our Journey

The Making Of

Turning the best Japanese chambray into the best shirts in the world.

  • Spinning

    The same highly twisted yarns that you find in denim make our chambray a stronger, denser finished fabric.

  • Weaving

    A classic plain weave- one over, one under- means a fine, even texture and strong yet lightweight fabric.

  • Cutting & Sewing

    All of our patterns need to be carefully adjusted to allow for the shrinkage that will happen in the wash after the shirt is sewn.

  • Washing

    We use the same wash experts for our chambray as we do for our denim, and the result is just as special.
