I Still Don't Own A Chambray Shirt

Denim is one thing that amazes me. It's hard to think a fabric that was practically nonexistent 100 years ago now dictates the wardrobe of 99% of America today. Thanks to Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake we'll never forget that with denim anything is possible. Just about anything you own and wear can be found in the Holy Grail fabric. I remember when the denim button down, formally named Chambray, became a trend a few years back. I laughed in the face of those who thought they looked stylish and mocked the magazines that put chambray shirts on their pages. Fast forward to today and here I am desperately wishing I owned a chambray shirt. Now they've become so ubiquitous I could probably walk into any clothing store and purchase one for myself, but I'm afraid that the second I slap down my $9.99 for a denim top the trend will go out of style. I know the more time I spend stalling and contemplating the less time I'll have to enjoy my chambray shirt if I choose to buy one yet I still sit back stalling and contemplating. Of course most of my closet consists of phenomenons of seasons past, but this time it'll be like a series of unfortunate events if a top I've been wanting for months drops off the face of the earth unable to be found in any discount store across the nation the second I choose to go out and buy it.

So tell me: Should I buy a chambray shirt or is it too late to jump on the bandwagon?
