Six Shirts for Everyday Living

A solid button-up stands proud in any social situation. The vibe is casual? Look stylishly relaxed, not lazy. Formal? Worry not! Snap up an extra button and put down the beer. Bam! You’re so formal.

A solid button-up stands proud in any social situation. The vibe is casual? Look stylishly relaxed, not lazy. Formal? Worry not! Snap up an extra button and put down the beer. Bam! You’re so formal. With boardies for the beach-party or pants for the night out, the shirt remains the same and the man transforms. Or not, but either way you’ll have a badass shirt on. That’s precisely our focus here…pointing you to five button-ups you should have in rotation year round.

roark_nordsman_ls

Roark Nordsman LS
The middle man between your more-bearded-than-you friend on fire wood duty, and the urban prowler who knows the coolest bars. This heavy button up has just the clash of heft and chic for any occasion.

Rhythm_snowflake_ls

Rhythm Snowflake LS 
A subtle twist on a dull white button up makes all the difference. A touch sheer with an unobtrusive pattern, this shirt will take you out from behind the desk, throw you on the beach, and push you straight to the bar.

Barbadozer

Reef Barbadozer SS
Simplicity seems the key to versatile swag. Here, you get just that. A clean patternless button up with minimal branding, and some sick-ass bird-doodle pocket emphasis. Keep that wild side on that left chest, close to heart.

reef_mix_ss

Reef Mix SS 
Gotta admit, the aloha shirt thing is kinda played out. But, that doesn’t mean a well executed remix can’t deliver some resurrection-type shiet. Here, the muted blues and tans pop without making you feel like a total dick, while the three-button half placket and slim cut keep things fresh and modern. I’d wear this real hard.

Publish Dingo SS
There’s something ’bout a button-up with no pockets… Add a relatively slim collar and hidden buttons, and you’re looking’ at something just futuristic enough to catch that second-take attention. That’s the good stuff.

G0009DYD

Hurley Ace Oxford 2.0
You could probably run a wholesome newspaper delivery service wearing this shirt. Except, you meet a firing girl-next-door type on one day’s delivery. She’ll freak over the cut of your shirt, leading to a badass summer fling. You’re probably in a rocking band too, but don’t need your shirts to sport flames and skulls to look the part. Oh, the subtly!
