It looks like the chambray jean is finally hitting the mainstream.

Levi’s is getting together with Opening Ceremony (and, incidentally, Ziggy from The Wire) for a mini-line called Levi’s Chambray, arriving in stores next week. There’s a classic jacket and smock, but the main event is the chambray jeans on display here. (They’re also available in peach, if you’re feeling delicate.) As soon as warmer weather rolls in, they should be a pretty useful item.

But as this shot demonstrates, it’s probably best if you keep them as far from denim as possible.
