A well-made chambray shirt will outlast most items in your closet and only looks better as it ages. Operating on a trademark and manufacturing process that has been in business for over 70 years, LA-based Coast-Wide is producing some of the highest quality chambray shirts on the market—with a twist. Looking for a new outlet for their art (while looking to produce the best shirts possible) the creative team at The POP Studio revived the heritage brand and began incorporating their designs into the shirts. The result is a collection of limited edition, eye-catching pieces that fit well and look great.

Taking cues from the past for constructing the shirts, the crew at Coast-Wide updated the workwear classic with a modern fit, with flattering cuts for the ladies and a slimmer trim for the gents. After poring over various chambray fabrics from across the US and the world, the team at Coast-Wide settled on a Japanese-milled chambray that is then hand-sewn in LA. Artistic motifs range from Native American-inspired designs reminiscent of '70s fashion in San Francisco to modern minimalist illustrations.

Coast-Wide shirts start at $260 and are available online through East Dane and finer retailers around the globe. For more information, visit Coast-Wide online and if you see something you like, act quickly because once they're gone, they're gone for good.
