A Button-Down Shirt is a Button-Down Shirt, right? Not to Us!

A woven shirt – otherwise known as a button-down shirt, a button-up shirt, dress shirt, or sport shirt - is a staple in most men’s closets. There are always great updates each season to give you a good reason to buy a few more. This season is all about saturated color, bold pattern, and cotton and linen materials. Spread collars also update the shirt, creating a modern silhouette.
In case you’re wondering, a woven fabric is one where the threads are actually woven together on a loom, creating a durable piece of fabric – perfect for this kind of shirt. This is in contrast to a knit fabric (like a T-shirt), which is softer because its fibers are actually looped together – the way your grandmother may have made you a sweater.

Find more of our favorites, and how to wear them for Work (Tuesday), After 5 (Wednesday), and Casual days (Thursday) throughout the week in our Fashion Finds.

From Vince, this classic white cotton poplin shirt works double duty. It may not be the first shirt to catch your eye, but with it’s slimmer modern silhouette, it is a sure thing to spruce up all of your casual summer shorts, cotton pants, and jeans. And it easily pairs with any cotton suit - we like this one - or sport coat for a less formal look.

This Robert Talbott striped, spread collar dress shirt is a classic for your navy and grey suits, and your tried-and-true blue blazer. Of course, it can work as a dressier sport shirt with gabardine or wool slacks, as well. (And sure, we can say it over and over – it works with jeans and cotton pants, too. Everything does!)

Patterns can be so personal…what draws us to one versus another? When it comes to Robert Graham, we are drawn to a lot of them. He combines patterns and colors so well, like this wine check with teal contrast in the collar and cuff. It’s such a rich combination that it will work now and into fall. Since most of our closets tend to consist of basic color pants – grey, khaki, tan, stone, dark denim – you can reach for any of them to work with this woven. We especially like it with an easy pair of linen pants in the summer. Great for a Saturday night out.

From Thomas Dean, a classic modern check in a deep, saturated blue to go with your dark wash jeans for a more casual Saturday night out. The sophisticated contrast details of the cuff and color are a great accent, but certainly one you can conceal if you wish. We have always liked Thomas Dean for its contrast trims, 100% pima cotton fabrics and not too full, yet not to trim fit. If you’re a timeless guy, this one’s for you.
