Hill-Side is best known for their square-end chambray ties, but lately this canvas version has been popping up in quite a few boutiques. Naturally, we’re a little curious…

It’s the deep end of workwear, not for dabblers, and while we’re not sure we prefer it to the usual chambray (for ties, we usually prefer fabrics you can’t light a match on), the canvas itself has quite a pedigree. It’s shipped in from Japan, alongside all that boutique denim you keep hearing about. It’s quite a move for a material they could have just as easily brought in from across the Hudson, but canvas has its selvage partisans too.
