We know the story: You find a few of the best shirts for men and wear them until they’re threadbare. Do you need some new options? Update your wardrobe with these stylish shirts, and watch what they do for your look and your love life.
The Professional Button-Up: Calvin Klein Dress Shirt
A good dress shirt is a wardrobe staple, but it can be tough to find the perfect combination of style and comfort. The tailored options at Calvin Klein hit the mark on both, and the slim fit gives you that ultra-sleek, “Mad Men” vibe.
The Casual Button-Up: Sean John Short-Sleeved Linen Shirt
Whether you’re a weekend warrior or relaxation king, these breezy shirts make every casual situation a little more stylish. The cotton and linen blend is beyond comfortable, and the shoulder epaulets and structured chest pockets have a handsome, militaristic edge.
The Weekend Tee: American Apparel T-Shirts
American Apparel is known mostly as the premiere sportswear brand for hipsters, but its T-shirts are some of the best shirts for men that we’ve found. You’ll be able to select from a variety of V-neck, deep V-neck and crewneck options, and the brand offers an incredible array of new colors and patterns every season. That’s the good news. The bad news is your girlfriend/hook-up buddy/random one night stand/cleaning lady will probably steal it for herself.
The Essential Polo: Lacoste Pima Cotton Shirt
It’s a match made in heaven: Lacoste’s iconic polo shirts and the otherworldly comfort of Pima cotton. This classic shirt is a must-have for any man’s wardrobe, whether you’re golfing, lounging or meeting your buddies for a beer.
