Chambray Shirt

pitti chambray
Not just a key note in 51º30", The Sartorialist's lens showed the chambray shirt as a significant look emerging from Pitti Uomo.
I prefer a menswear interpretation of a trend. I like their idea of incorporating a chambray shirt into a professional wardrobe.

My choice:
chambray shirt

-the sartorialist/brooks bros-


  1. I love chambray on a man in the fashion shown in these photos...masculine but refined. Nice.

    I like your choice too...I'd wear that myself!

  2. clearly a better way to pair it than wearing it like 90% of girls do: as a shirtdress with gladiator sandals.

  3. great choice. i can see you wear it with black skinny trousers and some classy black jacket.
    i had my eye on a helmut lang chambray shirt, but i can't recall where i saw it.

  4. chambrays are timeless. esp. love that shot on the right when combined with a checkered vest inside.

  5. I love chambray, not just for clothing, but also as upholstery, possibly curtains so long as it doesn't look too cowboy or country.

    I find that I am starting to appreciate the men on The Sartorialist more and more as well, and my pile of GQs is growing. It's a new thing for me, and I find I like the European-style preppy looks best!

  6. Nice Blog!!!

  7. I love oversized denim shirts!!! H&M make great shirts in the mens dept that I cozy and the denim is so ace! Love the one you picked! FABBBBBULOUS post--those men are hottt! kisses

  8. oh that's a beautiful shirt. and I agree - menswear often looks much more laid-back and not so overdone.
