Style Pick of the Week: Penfield Callahan Shirt


From the retro camp collar to the use of seersucker fabric, I think this shirt is just what you need in terms of style that keeps you cool and comfortable.

Finding summer style inspiration can actually be surprisingly tricky at times. After all, it’s incessantly hot, it can take a lot to get around (especially if you’re a city dweller sans car), and it often feels easiest to resort to a T-shirt and shorts. Make no mistake, that can certainly be done stylishly (Editor’s note: This stylish Taylor Stitch T-shirt is a great place to start!). But there’s another way to stay cool and look great, and it’s the Penfield Callahan Shirt. Yep. Simple as that. OK, maybe it’s not that simple. But seriously, a stylish short-sleeve shirt like the Callahan Shirt, especially one that incorporates a vintage-inspired camp collar, is something you really didn’t know you needed in your closet … right? I’m tellin’ ya, if you want a visually interesting, retro-inspired shirt that’s a cut above a slub T-shirt or a polo? The Callahan Shirt from Penfield is your go-to, particularly for a weekend happy hour, a summer party or an easygoing-yet-stylish Sunday brunch. Crucially, the Penfield Callahan Shirt rids your body of excess fabric and heat, and every bit counts in that department. In short, it’s as easy to wear as a T-shirt, yet with the upgraded style you’d normally get from a classic polo shirt. All the while, it’s that much more stylish and just plain … cool. That’s true in a literal sense (it’s made with seersucker fabric), as well as a figurative sense.

Exactly where the Callahan Shirt might work best … surrounded by friends and a few rounds of tasty beers.

It’s style that’s noticeable, yet not over-the-top … that’s exactly the type of style I think we all should aspire toward as readers of The Style Guide, right? The great thing about the Callahan Shirt from Penfield is that it nods to current trends in a way that’s eye-catching, but also timeless. Again, a retro camp collar shirt is just the changeup your wardrobe might need going into the rest of summer. What better option to reach for than one that works with slim khaki chinos and white canvas sneakers just as well as it works with rolled ligh wash denim and leather loafers? The Callahan Shirt from Penfield gives you the best of both worlds, and it does so all while not breaking the bank (note the $90 price tag on the Callahan Shirt). To recap: The Callahan Shirt nails the right balance when it comes to killer style that’s also casual. It’s also affordable. And most importantly? It keeps you cool as heck — in more ways than one — this summer. That’s good enough for me.

What about you? Are you buying the Callahan Shirt? How would you style it?
