The search for the perfect summer shirt can be surprisingly tricky. It’s a crowded market out there, and a stylish casual shirt has to check a few boxes — particularly if you’re going to be wearing said shirt on its own, using it as a stylish overshirt atop a slub tee, or layering it underneath rugged denim jacket on a cool summer night (Editor’s note: I like this stylish white T-shirt when it comes to summer layering). My friends, the Bridge & Burn Sutton Shirt is the shirt to wear to take care of business in each of those scenarios. Just like the Bridge & Burn Winslow Shirt that we talked about a few weeks ago here on The Style Guide, the equally stylish Sutton Shirt features the kind of easygoing style and cool-as-can-be design that makes it a summertime winner. From the 100 percent cotton construction to the use of a soft doublecloth on the interior, the Bridge & Burn Sutton Shirt is ridiculously easy to throw on for breezy summer evenings or casual summer days — especially if the temperature is a bit cooler than normal. The copper color sets it apart, too — I’m a big fan. While it’s perfectly fine to wear something a bit more vibrant in the summer, the occasion sometimes calls for style that’s a bit more pared down. Witness this shirt — able to be worn with slim chinos and white sneakers without missing a beat. And that, ladies and gentlemen, is why the Sutton Shirt belongs in your wardrobe (and on your back) this season.
Perhaps you, like me, also appreciate the versatility of a shirt like the Bridge & Burn Sutton Shirt — the type of versatility that enables a stylish casual shirt to be layered over a henley or an indigo pocket tee, worn beneath a navy cotton blazer, or trotted out all on its own. The rich fabric and cool copper color make it the perfect type of shirt to throw on with light wash jeans and classic suede chukkas — it’s no-fuss and decidedly no-frills. The Sutton Shirt also stands out quitely when teamed with other summertime classics, like slim navy chino shorts and white canvas sneakers. It’s, simply put, just a darn good shirt. When it comes time to throw on a classic denim jacket and gather ’round the bonfire (or the bar), well, the Bridge & Burn Sutton Shirt is going to work out mighty fine.
