What’s the difference between chambray and denim?

These days, my Macbook is on it’s last legs. I remember when I thought I was a ‘creative type.’ I thought I was an artisan meme crafter. I thought that a computer would ‘give me freedom’ to create the type of content that could truly resonate with ‘ppl just like me.’

“These days, I mainly just use my phone/tablet to click on retail-blasted emails offering ‘today only’ sales at my favorite Contemporary Conformist retailers.’
– a Contemporary Conformist.

Anyways, I might as well just become a pure Contemporary Conformist and chambray out my Macbook. Just go full-CC and try to ‘find happiness.’

My Macbook won’t last much longer. I remember when my iBook died. I remember when my black Macbook died. For some reason, I am just waiting for it to ‘die.’ I am not ‘backing up shit.’ I am losing everything that isn’t ‘already in the cloud.’ I am connected to nothing. I own nothing [via digitally].

Roll me up in a chambray blanket
tell me that I’ll live forever
Eternally contemporarily Conforming////

I need an Edison lightbulb lantern to light my future.


I always wonder what the difference between chambray and denim is. One time I was about to buy a denim button down, but I don’t think it was ‘me’ because I don’t ‘pimp out’ vintage cars or something or have a dad_beard.

I guess ‘chambray’ is lighter–a better look for me back when I was Contemporarily conforming in order to deal with post-hipsterdom while only having ‘affluent brands’ at the mall to sculpt a new look that ‘made me attractive’ to ContempConform slutz.

From what I understand, chambray is ‘lighter’ than denim. It is like ‘pussy denim.’ Something that rests softly on your shoulders. It pairs perfectly with a statement necklace, a pop of color, or white shorts/pants that ‘exude casual pseudo-affluence.’

A chambray is a plain weave fabric woven with a colored yarn in the warp and a white yarn in the weft. Like chambray, denim is made with a colored yarn in the warp and white in the weft, but is woven in a twill construction. The chambray’s warp and weft threads will alternate one over the other, while denim’s warp thread will go over two threads in the weft before going under one. Typically, you will notice a lighter color to the underside of a denim fabric, whereas the underside of chambray will appear much more similar to its face side.

Chambray will make you appear as ‘tasteful’ if you are a contemporary conformist. You are taking a break from plaid. You are taking a break from gingham. You are wearing jeans and chambray with a leather good belt/shoes. You are all-natural. Chambray is from the earth [via CC_fabricated_naturalist vibes].

Chambray looks great against brick walls.
Chambray looks great in fields.
Chambray looks good in the city.
Chambray looks great in the woods.
Chambray looks great on day-trip-wave vacations to ‘small towns’ that produce a local crop.
Chambray is light.
Chambray is free.

‘Real men’ who work on the farm need the durability of denim.
Contemporary Conformists wear chambray since all they do is go to coffee shops, pose against exposed brick, and sip on artisanal cocktails.

You are 100% a contemporary conformist if you ‘proudly’ wear a chambray button down. Whether you are a bro with some shorts or a girl with a big chambray button-down and some leggings, if you take pride in chambray, you are a Contemporary Conformist.

Do you ever just want to mate with some1 and inject some chambray DNA in2 ur set.
Chambray is post-OldNavy/Gap-waves for families.
Chambray is not denim.
Chambray is Chambray.

Only ‘true artisans’ can wear denim shirts. Buff bros who craft shit with hot metal tools. They grow beards and get ‘artful’ tattoos [via leather goods sleeve tat bro]

I just want to conform.
Looking like I belong in this pussy ass world.

I just want a GF who looks ‘proud’ in her affordable contemporary conformist look.

She will have me take a photo of her
which she will post to instagram
Her lame friends will ‘love her look’
ask her which Contemporary Conformist store(s) she assembled
her chambray look from

You look like you are straight out of the catalog in Chambray.


If you own a chambray shirt, are you 100% certified contemporary conformist?
Would u rather use chambray or denim as toilet paper?
Why are CC’s so ‘at home’ in their button down chambray shirt?
