A Few Ways to Wear Chambray

Chambray is an extremely versatile fabric.  It can be worn to the office, onto the work site, mowing the lawn, out on the weekends, etc. Like denim it's kind of an every man, or woman, fabric, which I think make's it so appealing.  The weight also tends to make it great for Spring/Summer and easy to layer up with for fall/winter....

Hasami Blockmug Big

It's unfortunate that it's so rare to find a product that functions exactly how you would it to.  Hasami's Blockmug Big fits this category, at least for myself.  The colors and finishes are subtly excellent as well as the shape which stacks into one another reducing cabinet clutter and freeing up space.   They remind me of Mid Century Herman Miller Eames Chairs.

A little teaser for a style we will have available in Spring 15'. It's made of a deadstock herringbone twill fabric based on a vintage Army pattern.  The fabric was made by the now defunct Dan River Mills, which was based out of and made fabric in Dansville, Virginia.
