As warm weather rolls around, the time comes when you can only wear so many striped Oxford cloth button-downs before craving layers again. That’s when the brown camp collar shirt steps in. Adored by everyone from Pharrell to Ryan Gosling, the laidback style inhabits a space between smart and beachy that’s perfect for sunny days, pool parties and anything in between.
What are the most worn pants?
The good news is there’s plenty to choose from, whether you want a bold floral or paint-splatter pattern or something plain and simple in linen. For a casual look, leave yours untucked with khakis or linen shorts; for a more refined (but still beachy) style, you can also dress it up by pairing it with a suit.
Japanese high-street hero Uniqlo may be best known for its value basics, but the brand’s shirting is quickly developing a reputation all of its own. Its linen camp-collar shirts have the same airy feel of your favorite Madras, but with a more relaxed silhouette and an array of plant-inspired prints. And with men’s sizes XS to XXL, you won’t need to worry about it creasing like crazy when you throw it in your suitcase for your next summer getaway.
