Men have it easy in the tops department: Throw on a shirt that’s split in the middle and reassembled with the use of ancient technology (buttons) and voila—you’re elegant. You likely have one or two of these magic shirts in your closet and you could likely use an upgrade. We found some of the best ones around, with particular focus on options that take modern fabric technology and infuse it into their offerings.
The Air Oxford Short-Sleeve Shirt
This is likely one of the most comfortable shirts I’ve ever worn and it works great casually or at work. A lightweight design and seven different colors give you versatility for days. Bonus tip: Check out Everlane’s new Uniform men’s collection for a bunch of other button-down options.
Buck Mason Classic Oxford
The brand that makes my favorite T-shirt also makes a killer button-down. They fit pretty much the same way as their T-shirts (perfectly) and they are extremely easy to care for, too.
Faherty Everyday Shirt
You’ll actually want to wear this button down from Faherty every single day. It’s lightweight, but best of all, it has a timeless design that can and will go with absolutely everything else in your wardrobe.
This Oxford from a brand we can’t get enough of is a must in any wardrobe. It has a stylish, slim fit, and has a pre-washed, casual finish. It’s easy to clean, and comes in two different colors of stripes (pro tip: get both).
