Chambray fabric is thought to originate from Cambrai in France many centuries ago as far back as 1595. Both sides of chambray are identical meaning it has no right or wrong side.
I love a nice chambray shirt. Whilst gaining a lot more popularity this year, the term classic can certainly be reserved for the chambray shirt. Inspired by industrial work wear and a Naval influence, Cousteau and McQueen looking out to sea, a staple in every season's collection from the top end to top man. Dressed down scruffy or dressed right up with a tie even, it just looks cool.
