Japan Blue Spring/Summer Items: 9.5oz Selvedge Chinos and Chambray Shorts!


A brand new batch of items just landed in the shop from Japan Blue. Just in time for Summer, we've got two brand new Selvedge Chinos and a pair of beautiful Chambray Shorts (with more colors on the way). These items are great pickups for when the weather gets too warm for your heavyweight denim, or if you're just looking for a little extra comfort in your wardrobe rotation. Check out the details below.

----------------------------------------
The Japan Blue Selvedge Chino comes in their "Slim Tapered" fit. At 9.5oz, this chino is a great weight for warmer climates. The fabric uses a slub yarn for both the warp and weft that is sewn on looms that can only produce 50m of fabric a day. The fabric is then dyed using a special machine called a "Jikka." Jikka dyeing machines were produced before the 1950's and are very difficult to use because it is a very slow and methodical process, causing much less damage to the fabric compared to modern dyeing machines. The result is a fabric that will achieve a very natural aged look after significant wear.

Tonal stitching found throughout the entirety of this chino, including the inseam, as seen above.

The followup of Japan Blue's ever-popular shorts from this time last year, these cotton/linen chambray shorts feature a slim silhouette and an 8" inseam which should hit just above the knee on most body types. The shorts are dyed in indigo which means they'll take on a unique character with wear, just as your denim will.

Belt loops on back rise.

Two back pockets, with button closure on left pocket.

Sleek slant pocket design.

Single button closure, zip fly.
