The Chambray Jean
- Najib Benouar
Chambray is nothing new as a shirt, or even a blazer, but Manhattan’s Jean Shop has finally hit on something new: chambray jeans.
Since Jean Shop takes its fabrics seriously, that means Japanese selvage, spun in the airy lightness of chambray, tumbled and softened to perfection in-house for one of the lightest summer pants this side of linen. And since they’re jeans, and not trousers, they’ll be weighty enough to feel like light denim—and hold a summer roll.
At the moment, these haven’t even made it to their website, but if you want to get your hands on a pair you can stop by one of their New York outposts or shoot them an email.
Just tell ‘em Kempt sent you.
