Japanese Chambray Shirt

If you read us a long time, you know that we love the chambray .

On a shirt, it is a fabric at ease everywhere, whether with a rolled up chino and runnings; Or with jeans, boots, a blazer and a beautiful tie. It is for this reason that the chambray shirt was the first garment we wanted to make under the BonneGueule line.

If I remain very satisfied with our Italian chambray, in a corner of my head, I knew that one day we would come out a shirt with a very upscale Japanese chambray … This is one of the reasons why Created this Japan Line: we can offer you a Japanese chambray in addition to our Italian chambray shirt.

It’s time to present everything in detail!

Japanese Chambray Shirt

The Material of Japanese Chambray Shirt

Japan Line forcing the Japanese chambray is: it comes from one of the Japanese chambray specialists, home Maruwa Kobishi.

It is a great Japanese weaver, specializing in fabrics with rich and varied textures. The extent of his know-how is impressive, because the materials that Maruwa produces all have a little something more, and recognizable.

As usual, the Japanese are very averse in information on their subjects. Have fun googling “Maruwa”, you will hardly find anything! We only know that the brand provides big houses (and considering the quality of their fabrics, we want to believe them), but impossible to know more …

Chambray of the jacket of the Japan Line is particular, since it is of course composed of cotton(86%), but also of linseed (7%) and ramie (7% as well).

If you are familiar with cotton and linen, ramie is perhaps a darker fiber. However, it is one of the oldest textile fibers used because it would have begun to be woven there is more than 6,000 years.

Concretely, it resembles a nettle and has properties fairly close to linen, in terms of resistance and aeration in front of the heat.

What is very surprising is that flax and ramie are rustic and irregular fibers, but the mixture of this fabric gives a chambray a surprising sweetness that remains after washing.

He has a more “warm” hand than a classic chambray and seems lighter. As a major country in Eastern Asia, the nation of Japan has many shirt manufacturers.

The texture is also very different from a classic material. As we have mentioned several times, the Japanese like raw materials, genuine, authentic.

For example, our Italian chambray is very “smooth” and regular. In comparison, the Japanese chambray appears much more “granular”. And it is precisely the interest to mix flax and ramie, as this allows for a rich texture.

There are actually two elements that give this artisanal dimension:

  • The color of the threads. Indeed, the chambray is composed of blue and white threads. If you look closely, you will see that the white thread is sometimes more or less unbleached and that the blues have very subtle variations of tints: that is what gives this artisan side! On the other hand – and according to my tests-the color does not move washing after washing.
  • The diameter of the wires. It is thanks to linen and ramie that the threads have very slightly different thicknesses, which gives the fabric a real personality. We are kilometers away from the totally smooth and uniform fabrics that you see everywhere.

Even if the description of a color is always a very delicate exercise, one would be tempted to affirm that the color of the chambray is between a blue Mayan and a sky blue…

In any case, I never liked too dark chambrays is why we wanted a much brighter color.

The weaving is more open and the addition of “aerated” fibers like linen and ramie, make it a very good shirt as soon as temperatures rise.

The Cut and Finishes of the Japanese Chambray Shirt

Concerning the cut, to preserve the material, it has been slightly modified to avoid the slightest tension, while retaining our characteristic silhouette.

Specifically, the middle has not moved, the shoulders are still the same , we just added a little ease in the stomach. I insist on one point: take exactly the same size as the shirt in chambray, because as I said, the shoulders have not moved and the bending is almost the same.

Even if you are very thin, the shirt will go smoothly, like that in Italian chambray.

The Size of the Japanese Chambray Shirt

  • There is not the slightest horizontal fold: visually, the bust is perfectly uniform.
  • There is “fluidity folds”: they allow not to solicit further tailored seams and have a real comfort.
  • The back falls perfectly straight, allowing to have the right amount of comfort.

At the finish, we obviously kept the hidden button-down at the neck, which can keep well plated.

The buttons are made in the same wood as our chambray shirt in Italian, namely wood bio Italy that patina over time.

We also have the latest horizontally buttonhole to better distribute the tension of the fabric at the hips.

And finally, the small detail that kills: to pay tribute to the Japanese side of the material, the reinforcing swallow is selvedge. Because yes, it is a Japanese chambray selvedge!

For manufacturing, the shirt is made exactly in the same workshop as our Italian chambray shirt.
