Easiest way to remember is the weft goes left (wefts are also called filling yarns). So in a chambray the vertical yarns will be colored and the horizontal white.

re: the warp and weft. i have taken a good look at both shirts, and cant figure it out on the other shirt (the barba). the white and the blue seem to both alternate equally, both horizontally and vertically.

Somethings can remain a mystery....is what my wife tells me. Seems to apply here as well.

If you get a loupe you can see which way the fibers are going. One of the threads runs vertically and the weft passes over and under them. Now if it is a basket weave (2 wefts over/under 2 warps) then it is not chambray or end on end. Then it will either be pinpoint, oxford, or oxford chambray. There isn't a whole lot of rhyme to how these fabrics are named so it's best to identify them by the type of weave, plain, basket, twill, or some kind of jacquard and then by what color the threads are.

By the above definitions, wouldn't a chambray be just a specific type of end-on-end where the "lighter" weft is white?

Yes. I think it's one of those all squares are rectangles but not all rectangles are squares situations. It's all quite silly.
