Chimala is said to be an indigenous word meaning "beauty". The brand CHIMALA seeks to infuse this spirit and ethos into denim. And the results are indeed quite nice to observe, and to wear, as Designer Norika Machida creates jeans that feel like the perfect vintage find with authentic vintage fits. Bigger cuts and perfectly distressed with a UNIQUENESS that is evident.
Doing baggy jeans right, from the beginning
Using Japanese denim, Machida has opted for looser fits from the beginning (since 2005). Which makes this the perfect brand for you if your goal is to indulge in the baggier style, which has been in groundswell for a couple of years and could become a tidal wave soon.
Here are some of our favorite Chimala fits from New York City's fantastic 180 The Store. Chimala is a brand with limited (men's) offerings every year, so if you can get a pair, snap em' right up!
