I remembered how much I enjoy Chambray after I found a 3.1 Philip Lim Chambray shirt at the back of my closet a couple of weeks ago. There is just something about this wash that feels both vintage and modern at the same time. Its timeless appeal is something I will always appreciate.
This J.Crew piece with its double chest pocket has, like its name suggests, a utilitarian vibe that works all year round. You can dress this up or down – with pants, jeans, shorts or chinos, and it will look equally great. I am digging the two-button extended collar band – a simple, subtle detail that gives both form and function (its for reinforcement). The shorter button placket rounds up this classic wardrobe essential.
