Is this denim or chambray?

Can't see the weave, but looks like it's chambray.

Chambray is a plain weave. Denim is a twill. Twill means there are diagonal ribs running across the fabric. Plain weaves are variations on a tic-tac-toe pattern, like mesh.

Thank you.
Yeah I think it looks to be a chambray too although the slight different colors around the seams make the shirt appear somewhat more denim-like.
The "slubby" appearance and the vertical lines (I think?) suggest chambray as well.
