Yay for Chambray

Chambray, a lightweight cotton cloth much resembling denim that made its debut in France back in the late 1600’s, is once again popular on the streets and catwalks. Commonly fashioned into button-up oxfords, short sleeve shirts and summer dresses, vintage versions made with deeply stylized Western yokes and embroidery are abound.

We’re fortunate to have a little cache on the website right now…best to scoop them up while they last. Below are our versions, a modern-day take from NYC company 10 Deep and a dapper young man on the sidewalks of La Paris, who combined his rolled-sleeve Chambray with khaki slacks and chocolate leather loafers, sans socks.
