You don't feel like doing your hair so you grab a beanie. You don't feel like wearing oxfords so you grab your boots. You want an extra layer without wearing a coat so you reach for a hacking vest. Call it laziness, call it function over form, this outfit is bred out of utility and comfort. Style is a byproduct.
Chambray, like denim, is tough. It's blue-collar tough. It can handle just about anything your favorite pair of jeans can handle. And lets be honest, you probably aren't washing your favorite pair of jeans as often as you should. So think about your chambray as your favorite 'denim' shirt. Make it your go-to. Beat it up. Stain it. Live in it. Give it some character and let the utility shine through. You don't always play nice, your clothes shouldn't have to either.
