There’s a plethora of men’s shirts you can surely select from at any given time for spring and summer — but there’s only one spring style essential that happens to be the Flint and Tinder Bone Button Western Shirt, available right now in a seasonally friendly Bleached Denim (as well as the darker wash seen above). Is it potentially the best denim shirt for you to buy now, and then wear time and again? I’ll have leave that to you … but in my estimation, there are certainly worse shirts to wear repeatedly (provided it’s clean, of course). And if you recall, we already wrote about a different iteration of this Flint and Tinder Western shirt last fall — so what makes this one so different? For starters, there’s the excellent Bleached Denim wash we mentioned earlier, a perfectly lightweight take on the normally thicker Western shirt (although for the record, the Stonewash Denim version of this shirt is easy to layer and not too stifling). So the wash is updated and ready for spring — what about the made-in-the-States construction you expect from F&T and Huckberry? Yes indeed, the Flint and Tinder Bone Button Western Shirt has that going for it, too.
This is a durable take on the Western shirt that manages to be both premium and rugged at the same time. To wit: It features authentic burnt cow bone snaps, plus the point design and stitching reminiscent of denim shirts from decades ago, so it’s casual enough to wear on its own, yet cool enough stylistically to wear under a classic cotton blazer.
The 8oz. weight of the Flint and Tinder Bone Button Western Shirt is also another positive — you can layer this over a classic slub tee without missing a beat (simply add slim tan chinos and vintage leather sneakers for off-duty spring style). This rugged Western shirt would also wear nicely with your favorite summer shorts and some stylish slip-on sneakers on a casual weekend day — easygoing style in warm weather needn’t be sloppy. Just add a glass of cold brew or a pint of your favorite beer, and kick back in this new seasonal essential.
