The 24 Best Shirts for Every Occasion


March 27, 2017 Style By

Oxfords, dress shirts, checked shirts, denim shirts, camp collar shirts and overshirts — the variety of button-front shirts is ecclesiastical. For men, who (compared to females) have limited sartorial options, playing within that variety is one of the pleasures of style. So explore the options, look into quality corners, and don’t hesitate to equip your closet with all 24 shirts. Unlike other areas of men’s style, where culling and curating holds value, the shirt is a playground. Shop around. Swap often. And bask in the plenty of the shirt.
