Thanks man! Admittedly it doesn’t get as much wear as my denim jackets, but it’s been washed a few times.. definitely gonna be a slow fader haha
It’s not just about fades. Use it to go picking apples. Wash your car. Take walks in the forest. Chop wood. Paint something. Get it damaged.

Anyone here own the Orslow New Yorker Fleece pants and can comment on stretch of fabric? Wondering if it feels like a sweatpant. Thanks!

Anyone else have any Chimala gear? Brought out this herringbone jacket today that I picked up from YJ for a steal. One of my favorite transitional pieces. I think they really nailed down the vintage feel with the washed OG green & the button degradation

@jmiller123 I've been eyeing that shirt and ultimately passed because the sleeves seemed too short for me. Looking at your picture I now see that I was right.

It looks super good though!

Chimala is lesser known but all they make that I've seen is good. @dieworkwear used to praise their chambray shirts.

@XWT Thanks man! They are definitely on the shorter side for most people but just about perfect length for me. Probably why I keep coming back to Japanese brands- they tend to work better for my frame than some of the western ones.

I haven't owned any but that's a Meg Co. brand helmed by Yuki Matsuda and his wife. They used to be focused in offering indigenously-woven items, but I guess they've expanded.

Edit: Chamula is as above. Chimala is a different brand. I keep getting those confused.

Might be wrong, but aren't you talking about Chamula and not Chimala?
