Japan's Chimala is the cult-favorite label behind some of the best denim we've ever seen. Worth the splurge? You bet. Here's why: Chimala's designers scour the globe for the world's finest fabrics and enlist the sophisticated technique of Japanese denim artisans, who treat every single Chimala style to a lengthy process of blasting, washing and detailing. Taking aesthetic cues from the bronco breakers and cattle ropers of the Wild West, each shirt is hand-distressed and overdyed to a perfectly aged hue. Constructed in heavy-duty 5-ounce denim, the final product is a have-it-forever classic—a rugged original with the unmistakable character of a long-treasured hand-me-down.
Made in Japan.
Since this item is indigo dyed, it's prone to crocking, or color transfer, so wear (and wash) it with dark colors till it's worn in.
