Check Out Stellar New Denim Brand Chimala

Yesterday I discovered and came upon the most delightful new denim brand at Dutil; Chimala.

The pair I ended up with was a straight cut dark wash, with very minor distressing marks on the front.  Chimala jeans are made in Japan from selvage denim, which may account for their rather high price point of $265 per pair.

The best part of this brand to be the quality and thickness of the denim material used; they kept their shape well once put on and resisted stretching.  I can’t locate any stock shots of this particular style, so photos are coming.

Unfortunately Chimala doesn’t seem to have an official website, so I can’t offer any additional info just yet. Keep your eyes peeled, denim enthusiasts.

Awesome choice. Nothing is better than Japanese selvage denim. That’s why brands like Dior use Japanese denim.
Chimala is a label formed by former 45RPM people. Also have a look at the brand Pure Blue Japan and my fav Sugar Cane.
