Sale events typically involve clearing past-season stock, which means you could end up with a parka in July. But right now, J.Crew is hosting a limited-time sale on new warm-weather staples like shorts, swim trunks, and its bestselling T-shirts. Summer button-down shirts are also ripe for the picking, including one specific chambray short-sleeve shirt that’s 38% off and one of the best deals of the sale.

Typically $80, J.Crew’s Short-Sleeve Indigo Organic Chambray Shirt is discounted to only $50 with plenty of sizes still in stock ranging from XS to 2XL. It comes in three fits, including classic, slim, and tall, with two colors to choose from—a mid-blue “one-year wash” and a light blue “five-year wash.” This limited sale wraps up on May 16, so you’ll want to act fast.

J.Crew’s short sleeve shirt is cut from chambray, a fabric that’s similar to but lighter than denim thanks to its open-weave. The fabric is 100% organic cotton, an eco-friendly alternative to regular cotton that’s grown using fewer toxic chemicals. The shirt has classic styling, with a button-down collar and a single chest pocket that’s ideal for stashing sunglasses during the bright days ahead. You can lean into the preppy look by tucking it into a pair of khaki pants, or opt for a more laid-back look by layering it over a white tee or ribbed tank.

The dress shirt styling and casual fabric make it a versatile option, according to one shopper who wrote, “This is a really nice quality chambray. The lighter wash is an awesome light blue—a more casual version of the standard blue office shirt.” Another called it a “great summer button-down,” appreciating the “nice material” and overall comfort.

One shopper called it a “classic wardrobe staple,” adding, “I’m a chambray fanatic. The fabric is authentic and substantial. It’s a bit stiff at first, but after a few washes it started to fade slightly and became much softer.” Another wrote, “This is a great lightweight shirt with a nice texture. Collar hangs open appropriately and looks fantastic.”

With warmer weather on the way, a good rotation of short-sleeved shirts is a must, and J.Crew’s short-sleeve chambray is a great option for every setting from the office to the beach. Best of all, it’s just $50 right now, so make sure to get one before the deal expires.
