The Chambray Shirt (1 Item – 3 Looks)
Chambray’s roots originate from cambric fabric, a heathered blue fabric originally created in the mid-1500s in Cambrai, France. Chambray, as we know it today, stemmed off this plain weave fabric. America first saw a widespread use of chambray when the U.S. Navy first authorized chambray for uniforms in 1901. All workers quickly adopted the durable and breathable shirt fabric, giving birth to the term “blue collar worker.”
Though sometimes mistakenly referred to as denim, chambray is now more aligned with fashion brands than ever before. Brands like J.Crew, Bonobos, ASOS and many more offer a variety of shirts in many different shades, not just the traditional blue chambray. See how a shirt with this timeless fabric can help you add three great looks to your wardrobe.

Dress up a chambray shirt with a jacket and tie. Start the outfit off right with a Ludlow Shirt in Japanese Chambray. Put together a classy look around the chambray shirt with a River Island Blue Tailored Slim Suit Jacket, ASOS Navy Knitted Tie, Kenneth Cole All Tied Up Tie Clip, and Bison Plaid Pocketsquare from The Tie Bar. Add just the right amount of flair with maroon Levi’s 511 Slim Corduroy pants coupled with a J.Crew Stitched-edge Belt. Lastly, round out the look by slipping on a pair of Cole Haan Lenox Hill Derby Shoes.
