Ah, summer. The season of sandals and shorts and swimming, of humid air and noisy AC units. 'Tis the season for camp collar shirts, fellas. A casual alternative to the button-down, with a single, one-piece spread collar.
Let me write a quick love letter to the camp collar shirt—the beautiful, elevated basic to carry you through your summer days. It's stylish, whether you have one in a plain color or a cool print. And, speaking of, it's a gorgeously broad category: you can find camp collar shirts of the linen or cotton varieties, of silk or satin, fit for daytime events or dressier, nighttime vibes. The shirt is laidback by nature, but versatile enough to be dressy, if the occasion calls for it—pair with loafers or dress shoes, and you're in.
Every menswear designer makes a variation—that should tell you how much of a staple they are. And if you don't believe me, just scroll and see for yourself; I doubt there'll be an option you don't like for this season.
