Style Pick of the Week: Howlin Light Flight Short-Sleeve Shirt

The unique short-sleeve shirt to wear all summer.

How much of your summer to-do list have you checked off to date? Have you enjoyed a summer happy hour (in style, of course) or an outdoor concert? How about a visit to your favorite brewery? And most importantly, what are you wearing to tackle each and every single one of these pursuits? Answer: A stylish short-sleeve shirt like the Howlin Light Flight Shirt has to be the menswear essential you need — that’s a fact. It’s an investment at $140 as sold via Huckberry, but this is practically a do-it-all shirt. While at first it might seem like too much of a departure from what you’re used to wearing for off-duty style (perhaps something as simple as a USA-made T-shirt), give the Howlin Light Flight Shirt a try when you want that same laidback comfort — and just a bit more polish. That’s what makes it one of the best short-sleeve shirts for men this season; it’s all about balance, and all about not overdoing it. What I mean to say is, leave the starched dress shirt at home for Casual Friday, and head into the office wearing the Howlin Light Flight Shirt, plus some slim tan chinos and suede chukka boots — then, get yourself to your favorite bar for happy hour after work. Made from a breezy cotton-polyester blend, it’s the laidback short-sleeve shirt that’s got more in common with a simple tee than anything else — for summer, that’s great news indeed.

The Howlin Light Flight Shirt looks a little bit like something Mr. James Bond himself would wear on a tropical getaway, but that doesn’t mean you can’t make it work for you — even if you’re only wearing it to grab a round of rooftop cocktails. The classic free collar is a retro-inspired touch, akin to a camp collar shirt, that looks refreshingly modern today, particularly if you pair this navy short-sleeve shirt with off-white chinos and brown leather loafers for a bit of dressy appeal. Plus, the Howlin Light Flight Shirt  just so happens to be made in Belgium — it can handle a hot European summer or a breezy NYC day with ease. And if you’re searching for a shirt to keep you cool underneath a classic cotton blazer, take a style hack from the old blog and try the Howlin Light Flight Shirt under said blazer — you’ll be grateful you did as the thermostat climbs. Your search for the perfect summer shirt is finally over, just in time for the weekend.
