imogene + willie: Chambray Lust

26/05/2011 § 1 Comment

I have been a fan (from afar) of Nashville-based denim shop imogene + willie for some time and as I am currently planning a road trip, I’m wondering if I my desire to go to Nashville is solely motivated by the fact that I’d love to visit Carrie and Matt and the gas station they have turned into a mecca for good, handmade denim.  I mean, there have to be plenty of other reasons to go to Nashville…right?

For those unfamiliar, please meet imogene + willie (and Carrie and Matt):

While owning a pair of their perfect jeans is at the top of my list, the summer months have me lusting after their chambray as well:

For the ladies: gladys in blue chambray
High note: tuxedo placket

For the gents (and ladies): leo chambray western
High note: angled flap pockets

Nashville, I’ll be seeing you soon…
