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


The designer of Sunny Sports, Kitahara Shinya, is a long time collector of vintage Americana clothing which inspires his designs. The Sunny Sports "1940's Railroad" chambray is Shinya-san's take of the classic chambray as worn by railroad workers in 1940's America. The construction details and fabric also use vintage methods for a superior constructed garment with a modern fit.  Our spring 2013 Sunny Sports first shipment just arrived which includes restock of four chambrays:  white, blue gray, black, and red.  We will also have an indigo version coming soon.

Asymmetric pocket design and small collar are replicas to the vintage 1940's America design. The selvedge chambray is produced on vintage shuttle looms also replicating the vintage America design.

Sunny Sports uses vintage triple needle sewing machines from the early 1900's to construct the garment. Only a few of these machines are still operational today, most of which are in Okayama, Japan. Triple needle construction is used throughout for long-lasting construction and subtle design.
