Short sleeve shirts create a polished look while providing the ability to stay cool at the same time. This makes them easy to transition from day to night, as well as being a top pick for sports and summer barbecues. The current trends range from the grandad collar and fitted denim, to the timeless classic white oxford.
“Short sleeve button-ups are a summer essential,” says Alexis Frey, creative director of life/after/denim. “Wear them untucked with chinos on the street, and rock them with board shorts at the beach.”
A comfortable fit is essential to making the shirt have a smooth appearance in the front and in the sleeves. “While wearing the shirt, flex and make sure the sleeve has room – otherwise, your sleeve will continue to ride up your arm all day,” suggests Victoria Ley, VP designer of Fashion Stork, a men’s clothing subscription service. “And don’t be afraid to button that last top button.”
Here are some short sleeve shirt picks to get some sun on the guns.
