The Chambray Shirt: Keeping You Cool All Summer Long

STYLE

It may not seem like it on the surface, but the chambray shirt is one lean, mean, heat-fighting machine. More breathable than a traditional oxford shirt (oxford’s have a tight cotton weave), a chambray shirt will help to keep your body temperature from spiking on those warm spring days.

Adding this sartorial workhorse to your repertoire is essential. Not only is it casual but it also goes with nearly everything. One of our favorite looks is to wear a chambray shirt with a pair of black (or dark blue) denim. Simple, chic and above all, comfortable.

You may also consider working your chambray shirt in with a slim pair of chinos or under your favorite suit, you really can’t go wrong. The best part is that they only get better with age.
