Style Pick of the Week: Saturdays Surf NYC Esquina Oxford

Editor’s note: Expect these posts with some regularity detailing one standout item coveted by yours truly. Sometimes, these fit within budgetary restrictions and other times, they’re expensive splurges worth saving for — like the pick below. For more Wish List items from Beau, head here.

It was a close call determining this week’s Style Pick of the Week. Go for another, similarly awesome buttondown (this short-sleeve shirt from Apolis) or a great jacket for the spring (this pricey but stunning Todd Snyder bomber)? In the end, an early day out of work and a trip to the awesome Saturdays Surf NYC store in SoHo led to the pick you see here — the brand’s Esquina Oxford in Indigo.

For those not familiar with Saturdays NYC, the brand launched in 2009 selling wetsuits, surfboards and beach equipment to surf-crazed New Yorkers. They’ve since expanded to producing and designing their own menswear and were part of GQ’s 2012 Best New Menswear Designers in America cohort — high accolades to pick up in just a short time. So the quality speaks for itself. Yes, $98 is a pretty high figure for a short-sleeve shirt — but having checked out this particular shirt in person (and having worn last year’s polka dot version to death), it’s a splurge worth making. The shirt is exceptionally soft, slim-cut and well-designed, too. It’s also available in light grey, white and black — but the indigo color is, to me, that rare blue shirt that would pair well with lightwash blue jeans or dark denim — not to mention khaki chinos or tailored shorts.

Do you own any items from Saturdays NYC? What brand of short-sleeve shirt are you picking up for spring?
