La chemise en chambray selvedge

The selvedge chambray shirt

Read time 1

On one side, chambray, a light and generous material. On the other, “selvedge”, a word that connoisseurs and neophytes alike use, an implicit guarantee of know-how. We were inspired by the chambray worn by Marlon Brando and Serge Gainsbourg, which will patina over time to become a unique piece.

A comfortable chambray, with an irregular appearance, in a slightly indigo blue. We imagined this very special version of the chambray shirt with the famous Japanese house Maruwa, atypical and timeless. The workshop works with old weaving machines to make its selvedge fabrics. It is precisely these machines, slower, less symmetrical, which make it possible to obtain a chambray with this more authentic texture.

An exceptional piece, made accessible.

We wanted to pay tribute to this rare know-how, by making visible the edging obtained during weaving. On the pocket, a raw edge, cut directly from the fabric, without adding seams. On the reinforcement ribs, the solidity of the edging prevents any risk of tearing at this location.

To put it simply, we wanted to create a shirt with the character of a rare piece found second-hand, by introducing special details. The fabric is light, breathable, without being transparent, with a generous weight of 157g/m2. Its specific weave makes it a shirt that can be worn well in any season, even in the middle of summer. The button-down collar is easy to care for and the relaxed fit can be worn outside of the pants. An exceptional piece, made accessible.
