Hey Chambray!

Isn’t chambray the same thing as denim? Not quite. Both fabrics are made of cotton, but chambray is more lightweight, making it perfect for summer. The linen-like cloth gets the name chambray because it originated in Cambrai, France.

I’ve worn my J. Crew chambray shirt so many times that the buttons are starting to get loose. It might be time to add another two or three to my closet.
