4 shirts every man should have in their wardrobe

Button-down shirts are the cornerstone of every man's wardrobe. The right fit, print and fabric will surpass the test of time and will be guaranteed to be worn regardless of the season or trends. Invest in the right, versatile pieces and you'll have something to wear to every event, so here are the styles to own that will ensure you'll be ready no matter the occasion.

The classic white shirt

Undoubtfully, THE staple of staples, nothing beats a classic white shirt (or tee for that matter). For a laid weekend do, pair a relaxed linen style with jeans or even cargo pants. For the office or more formal events, pair a crisp, cotton style with a little more rigidity, with suit pants or chinos. Styles with subtle detailing and texture can also add something extra to your look.

The striped shirt

Once again, the fabric and how you style it, in combination with the print, will depend on how dressed up or down you're intending to go. When it comes to striped shirts, the general rule of thumb is the wider the stripe, the more casual the vibe. While blue striped shirts are simply a classic, venture out to bolder stripes in retro cuts for a fun nod to the 70s.

The denim shirt

As easy to style and perhaps even more verstile than its jacket cousin, the denim shirt is truly a year-round staple. The perfect piece to throw on during summer nights over tees, as well as layering under knits during winter, invest in this hard-working, hard-wearing shirt and you'll likely never have to buy another again as it'll only get better with age.

The checkered shirt

While essential to the hunky lumberjack uniform (or tradie as we would prefer in the southern hemisphere), the checkered shirt has earnt it's cult status and the renditions of this classic print are countless. Like the denim shirt, this style never fails as a layering piece in any climate. Checkered shirts don't just have to be for casual occasions, try a more smaller check if you're aiming to wear it to the office or under a suit jacket for date night or weddings.
