+1 Though I've never really faced any real problems ironing my shirts after investing in a good iron. I think that to some extent, the iron probably makes more of a difference than the shirt fabric. Might be wrong.

Very definitely dress. I stupidly neglected to take a photo, but I'll be having a shirt made up in it soon.

Isn't the difference between chambray and end on end that chambray is calendared (heat and pressure treated) during finishing? I would imagine that has an impact on the color, texture and creates the interesting inconsistency that people are after with this fabric.

Odd that over 1,000 posts and no one has mentioned that whereas there are numerous articles on the interwebz that point this out.

Chambray has a warp in one colour and a weft in a different colour (usually white). While end-on-end also has a similar weft, the warp threads alternate between the weft colour and a different colour.

Fabric looks nice too - for a certain use.

Must we hate on everything? It's a very small detail, inconsequential. It would neither entice me to buy the shirt nor prevent my buying it.

Definitely not inconsequential. Quite noticable.

Yep, come on, it's a casual shirt. Nothing wrong with a tiny wee bit of subtle fun on it. It's probably not even going to be worn with a jacket...

That sort of thinking is what led to Western wear.

for me this is the detail that prevents the shirt from being worn with a jacket. for chambray shirts to not be limited to casual wear they have to have only few details and a decent collar.

 

that selvedge strap to me is like a buttoned V-pocket on a plain white dress shirt.

An accusation I have learned to live with.

But noticeable and consequential are not the same, my liege.

but it does seem to be a 100% casual shirt. probably not meant to be worn with a jacket, much less a tie.
