If polo shirts aren’t your style and you’re looking for tee shirt substitute, there’s always the button up short sleeve. Following that train of thought, this Madras Plaid Short Sleeve ($55) is a future summer classic. Part of the company’s new signature series line, it’s made of 100% cotton and cut to be slightly fitted while falling at the hip, because sails should remain on your boat, not the sides of a shirt. Sold in three colors of options of sailcloth, raven blue, and night (pictured above), match one with some J. Crew light weight beach shorts and a pair of Jack Purcell boat shoes and get your summer on.

Editor’s Note: Doesn’t everyone just sit on the porch, carving a fresh duck decoy?
