Are you prepped for fall? A bit? Kind of? Sort of? At least when it comes to the best men’s fall shirts, the excellent Portuguese Flannel Lobo Shirt can certainly help. It’s made from cotton corduroy in a unique and rich Olive color, a nice way to change up your shirting rotation from that classic chambray shirt you always find yourself wearing (or maybe that’s just me?). And at any rate, it’s high time we incorporated some more rugged, tough fabrics into your list of fall style essentials — that’s where the good folks at Portuguese Flannel come into play. The Lobo Shirt is deceptively easy to wear; don’t let that unique corduroy fabric fool you. It’s definitely not your dad’s corduroy shirt — it features a tailored fit, plus a chest patch pocket for a bit of visual interest. Throw in a classic buttondown collar, and the Portuguese Flannel Lobo Shirt really isn’t too much different from your favorite Oxford shirt. In my estimation, that should make it a pretty easy buy when it comes to shaking up your fall weekend (or weekday) wear.
OK, so let’s say you’re a bit hesitant or unfamiliar with how to wear a corduroy shirt — again, think of it like your favorite casual shirt. Dark indigo denim and rugged brown leather sneaker-boots would be a winning combo, as would a thermal henley, slim black jeans and classic suede chukka boots. Want to go a bit more dressy with it? Style the Lobo Shirt with a navy cotton blazer, slim grey chinos and brown leather dress shoes for a day at the office. Need to wear it in a truly rugged style situation (I.E. A fall camping trip)? You really can pair the Portuguese Flannel Lobo Shirt with a long-sleeve thermal shirt, tough chore pants and tough hiking boots to go off-trail. A fall shirt that can do it all? Sounds great to me. As always, thanks for reading!
