Style Pick of the Week: Outerknown BBQ Shirt

The perfect blend of style and casual cool for summer.

Is there a more fittingly named short-sleeve shirt for summer than the Outerknown BBQ Shirt? Perhaps not — but I’ll let you be the judge of that. Finding one of the best short-sleeve shirts for the warmer months can be a tall order; some are too baggy and overly loud, some are too slim or not breathable enough. And yet, the Outerknown BBQ Shirt is far from that, combining the laidback cool that you need for your next BBQ with the sort of refinement that makes it easy to wear beneath a classic cotton blazer at your next summer wedding (a little style hack there for you). The Outerknown BBQ Shirt comes to you from a favorite brand here at The Style Guide (perhaps you recognize this post on how to get a discount at Outerknown, in fact). From the mind of legendary surfer Kelly Slater and designer John Moore sprang a new lifestyle brand that encompassed the surf-ready nature of Slater’s background and the A-plus designs chops of John Moore — plus, a serious commitment to sustainability. All of this is to say, the Outerknown BBQ Shirt is made with durable, breathable hemp and organic cotton — a one-of-a-kind blend that makes this a pinnacle of sustainable menswear.

The small details set this shirt apart, easily.

Again, if you want a shirt that toes the line between too dressy and too casual, this stylish short-sleeve shirt really is the way to go. Witness the durable, pleasingly refined corozo buttons — no shoddy plastic white buttons here, folks. Plus, the breathable construction is deisgned not to cling to your body, no matter how hot it gets around the grill. And when worn the right way (I.E. With a lightweight cotton blazer), you could easily team this shirt up with slim stone chinos and leather loafers for a sharp-yet-casual Friday of travel or meetings. The hits really keep coming with the Outerknown BBQ Shirt, as we say — in this case, the shirt itself is printed on the interior for a look out of the box that mimics your favorite broken-in T-shirt. In total, it’s one of the cooler shirts your author has seen in some time; that means you’re liable to be one of the only people (the only person!?) at your next get-together wearing it. All that remains is for you to grab a six-pack of your favorite beer and get to where you need to go.  With the Outerknown BBQ Shirt, it’s more than possible.
