The Sport Shirt: A Casual Staple with Both, Comfort & Style

What makes a button-down become a favorite weekend shirt? Generally, comfort and versatility do the trick. If it’s soft, goes with the jeans and cargo pants – and fits – things are generally off to a pretty good start. You can get all of that AND look stylishly casual. The options this season are so interesting, in soft flannels, masculine plaids, washed denims, and even herringbones and nubby textures. They all bring interesting finishes to your most casual days. In today’s world of “athleisure” (you know, your nicer sweatpants and hoodies), a great button-down takes you from lounging on the couch to hanging out at a bar.
Let us know what you think in the comments below. If you missed any of our work or after 5 shirt picks, check them out in our Fashion Finds. Whatever the occasion, we’ve got you covered. See you next week.

The smoky blue pattern of this John Varvatos Star USA shirt is muted, with a broken-in feel, making it a perfect match to your favorite jeans any weekend day. It has roll-tab sleeves for the ultimate casual look, a soft spread collar and a finished shirttail hem to make it easy to wear untucked. Tip: When a shirt has a roll-tab sleeve detail, don’t feel obligated to roll it up and use that button. It’s a great option, but your shirt looks equally good unrolled, with the button exposed.

We are seriously coveting this Canali plaid shirt. The grey and burgundy color combination is just that perfect plaid for jeans and khaki’s on the weekend. Made in Italy, it has a spread collar and a classic fit – and, most importantly, Canali’s high-end fabric and finishes, which gives this casual shirt a leg up on the rest. Add a solid pullover or cardigan, if you wish, and you are set for all kinds of weekend fun.

Another great shirt with your jeans, this navy plaid is no ordinary plaid – created from varying white stripes, it’s got a subtle twist that makes it a little more interesting. It has back darts for a trim, tailored fit from CWST (yup, that’s the name – it’s a really cool line from LA). While we absolutely like it with jeans, the updated pattern and brushed cotton fabrication works with khaki’s and a charcoal or navy sport coat, too.

Sure, plaids and patterns are our go-to’s for casual sport shirts. But that’s just because we didn’t have this J. Crew shirt to add to our wardrobes. The brushed cotton twill is done in a herringbone stitch, all of which creates some texture and white flecking in this grey shirt. It creates a perfectly broken-in look that is great with your favorite jeans, and works under a colorful or pattern sweater, too. You can wear it with a casual corduroy jacket or chunky cardigan for a weekend party or day of shopping.

The larger plaid in a pale creamy yellow/blue combination creates a vintage feel, perfectly complimented in it’s soft cotton flannel fabric. Gant Rugger’s contemporary fit allows you to easily wear this shirt under a sweater, but it looks just as good on it’s with jeans or khaki’s. Don’t be afraid to add a sport coat. Even though it’s flannel, a casual charcoal or navy sport coat provides unexpected style and finish.

Tommy Bahama’s cotton/silk blend shirts are a great choice for the classic guy who likes comfort and current fashion. This wine and light blue check looks fresh for fall, with your jeans or khaki’s – the perfect compliment to brunch or a casual dinner out.

True Grit - Best Stretch Corduroy Shirt Jacket
A solid shirt jacket is a practical piece for fall weekends. And when it’s done in corduroy from True Grit, it’s the classic masculine finishing touch to your weekend jeans and long sleeve t-shirts. It’s cut with a little extra room, so you can even wear it over your favorite flannel shirt. It comes in khaki, but we think the black is endlessly versatile.

Another classic style, in a classic fit, from our friends at Tommy Bahama. It comes in a bunch of colors that are all great, but we’re showing you the universally flattering pale regatta blue. This color highlights the texture and subtle design work. Click through the “shop it” button to get a closer look. The fabric is yarn-dyed silk and cotton, so you know it will be soft. And of course, it works with almost any pair of jeans or khaki’s.
