Coast-Wide is a trademark California-based company that has been manufacturing and designing chambray shirts for over 70 years. But they recently caught our attention at the August Las Vegas trade shows, where they joined forces with the artistic team at the Pencil on Paper studios to interpret and design a limited run collection.
Coast-Wide wanted to inject something fresh and new into their classic range and create a revival one-time contemporary line to show off their age old obsession with texture, weave and indigo. The small collection consists of chambray shirts handmade and numbered in L.A. Made of the highest quality Japanese cloth and adorned with handcrafted embroideries, the shirts will only be available at selected online boutiques and hand picked stand-alone stores.
Coast-Wide wanted to mix the charm of your old favorite flea market find while looking forward into a future utopia.
The collection hosts shirts for both men and women, and retail starts at around $260. There is a selection of eight shirts for men and three shirts for women, all with modern attention to fit and detail as well as embroideries inspired by “futuristic nostalgia.” They said that great attention was given to creating a modern slim line fit shirt to move away from past fits but also keeping elements of the classic construction. You better get your hands on them now because once they are sold out that’s it until next season!
