With spring right around the corner, it’s time to talk Chambray again. This lightweight, breathable, denim-based fabric is the perfect compliment to your chino and white denim bottoms. At times, it may be acceptable to pair chambray with dark denim, although this trend is beginning to lose its footing after many retailers featured it for spring/summer 2010.
Last spring I picked up a beautiful chambray shirt from Brooks Brothers and it remains one of my favorite tops. Being over six feet tall and rather lean, it’s difficult to find shirt options that are both slimmer fitting and long enough both in the arms and torso. Granted, I normally wear my shirts un-tucked with rolled sleeves, I’d like to have the option to wear them tucked and buttoned at the wrist.
You can find the shirt pictured below on the Brooks Brothers website here.
