Sunny Sports "1940's Railroad" Organic Cotton Japanese Selvedge Chambray Work Shirts


Our final item in the Sunny Sports chambray series is the "1940's railroad" organic cotton work shirt in sumi. The selvedge chambray fabric is made on vintage shuttle looms in Okayama, Japan and features a heavier, more sturdy weight compared to our other Sunny Sports chambray items. The color is created using a traditional Japanese dying method with charcoal ink, which is commonly used in Japanese artworks, resulting in a streakiness that has tremendous depth and character.
