Introducing Chimala, the cult-favorite label behind some of the best jeans we've ever seen. Worth the splurge? You bet. Here's why: To faithfully reinterpret the workhorse blues of the '50s and '60s, Chimala's team of denim gurus wove 13.5-ounce selvedge slub on prewar vintage looms and then hand distressed each pair, treating them with individually chosen washes for the unmistakable earmarks of authentic vintage denim. Jeans are then pintucked at the pockets, waistband and hem to create three-dimensional detailing, overdyed to a perfectly aged hue and given one final treatment before they're ready for action (stains, paint splatter and repair are some of Chimala's signature finishing touches). The final product is a button-fly, five-pocket classic—a rugged relaxed-fit original, with the unmistakable character of a long-treasured hand-me-down.
