The roots of denim lay deep in the highly functional uniforms of industrial workers worldwide. We love when brands reach back into these roots and transform the concept into something modern and fashion-forward. Japanese denim brand Kunna showed us a heavily washed, soft-textured chambray jacket that does exactly this, featuring patch pockets and a relaxed fit. Pair this classic with your current summer looks to transition seamlessly into fall.

We’re live blogging from PROJECT New York for the next three days, hand selecting our favorite new products on the market. First up, our friends from Raleigh Denim just tempted us with this rad pair of men’s canvas jeans. The 10.5 oz oak mill natural canvas is highlighted with red top stitching, and if you turn them inside out, you’ll find hip bones screened on the cotton pockets. The paper bag treatment creates a crinkled texture that adds dimension to the silhouette. We’re sold.
