Short sleeve button down shirts are going to be a style staple over the next few months as the temperatures begin to soar and now is the perfect time to add a few different options to your wardrobe rotation. The guys at Huckberry have one of the most extensive selection of brands to choose from when it comes to a button-down and we take a look at 10 of the best below.
Far Afield Stachio Poision Frog Shirt | $150
Far Afield, the fellas responsible for this striking pattern, started with a simple idea — “British Design, Global Inspiration” — combing pragmatic, clean silhouettes with patterns and textures that speak to their pioneering style and spirit. If you’re looking for a shirt a little further afield than you’re used to, you’ve found it.
Taylor Stitch Hawthorne Shirt | $125
The guys at Taylor Stitch are always a go-to for us for shirts and this waffle-weave, textured organic cotton number gets more interesting the more you look at it. The lay-flat camp collar is a relaxed summer style aesthetic, and eye-catching colour options like this striped khaki iteration provide a pleasing change of pace.
Flint & Tinder Indigo Camp Shirt | $98
The deep blue hues of of this Flint & Tinder Shirt are normally associated with denim, but will fade just as beautifully on a waffle-textured cotton such as this. Though not as eye-catching as some of the patterns here, the texture will stand out more and more over the years, creating a design unique the adventures you take it on.
Seager Co Whippersnapper Shirt | $75
The Seager Co Whippersnapper is an exclusive design that hits on the aesthetic of the ’60s and ‘70s, but it’s brought forward into the 21st century courtesy of the easy-open snaps and the lightweight blend of cotton and recycled polyester. Throw it on and take it off in between cooling swim sessions on the river.
OAS Blue Machu Cuban Shirt | $120
If you’re heading to the beach this summer consider bringing this ultra-soft, plush French Terry cotton shirt from OAS with you. It feels like wearing a luxurious bathrobe and can function as a towelling alternative when you do hit the water. Win, win.
Marine Layer Selvage Shirt | $98
We trust Marine Layer with our summer apparel especially for shirts. The Faded Olive S/S shirt calls to mind the colour palette you might find on the foggy Mendocino coast, but the real winner here is the subtly detailed slub yarn selvage fabric that feels like it could’ve been pulled right from old man’s closet.
Wills Wrinkle Free Shirt | $78
The chaps at Wills set out to solve the lifelong problem of a wrinkled shirt while balancing the best of both worlds by ensuring it offers the casual vibes that we all know and love. The result is a refined package with a luxurious hand feel that doesn’t cost a fortune. What’s not to like?
Flint & Tinder Retro Hawaiian Shirt | $78
The humble Hawaiian shirt, prized for its easygoing sensibility and the good vibes you pick up from every tropical print is a must for summer. It’s a true emblem of Hawaii, the kind the team at Huckberry loves to seek out — yet, this one is done with a decidedly Flint and Tinder twist, as it is inspired directly by the one James Bond sported in Die Another Day.
Wellen Snap Shirt | $88
Can you have too much of a good thing? As in, too many terry cotton button-downs that feel unreasonable soft? In short – no. We have a feeling this shirt might be a favourite of one secret agent in particular, with three useful patch pockets, a super-soft fabric construction and an easy-on, easy-off snap-front design.
Rhythm Vacation Shirt | $70
When you hit the beach this summer, you get to break out of your typical style tropes in a way that’s refreshing and fun. With Rhythm’s Vacation Shirt you will be keeping it simple, and you’re a winner in our book. Rhythm’s design here was inspired by the Land Down Under, but we think these beachy, surfy stripes look at home anywhere the sand meets the sea.
