Another Casual Tool: Chambray Work Shirts
A similar style to the military shirts discussed the other day. Chambray is a much softer material--texture-wise, it feels like something out of that Paul Newman movie where he's in a prison camp in the desert somewhere. (Will history be so kind to Nutraloaf as it was to gulags? Time will tell.) This one is also from the Gap and has some questionable details, like farfalle-style stitching on the wrist, so I usually roll the sleeves up.
Here, observant readers will note, I added a purple handkerchief to the breast pocket for a dash of color. Gray shirt, blue jeans, black belt is a bit monochromatic.
