What's charming about the chambray shirt is the casual and relaxed feeling. The name is related to the weaving of the material, mostly cotton but before it was only linen. Originally in white, people most relate to chambray in the blue hues. It's kind of a substitute to the denim shirt during the warmer summer months and has endless opportunities in mixing and matching, up and down. It often becomes kind of a favourite in the wardrobe as it softens with age and follows you through sweet and sour!
