If you’re anything like me, you have a whole rotation of the best shirts for spring and summer that you look forward to wearing specifically during, well, spring and summer. To be sure, a well-curated wardrobe requires menswear essentials that work across seasons (like this denim shirt!), but for the breezy days ahead of us, there’s not a pick I’m liking more at the minute than the Buck Mason Denim Vintage One-Pocket Shirt. It’s rugged, it’s stylish, it’s classic … it’s one of the best denim shirts for your hard-earned cash right now. There’s something about a rugged denim shirt that just works for these kinds of days — perhaps it’s a bit breezy in the morning as you enjoy your favorite coffee on the back porch (throw on this stylish denim shirt atop a slub tee), and then perhaps the day warms as it goes along. All throughout (and especially when working from home), this classic denim shirt is going to serve you very well indeed.
This Buck Mason denim shirt is available in a number of cool, perfectly faded washes, but I love the Medium Wash Denim Shirt as shown here. You can rock it buttoned or unbuttoned atop a classic white T-shirt just as readily as you can layer it over a Buck Mason henley (seriously, this brand does it all), and then on your lower half, you can rock everything from edgy, slim black jeans to classic tan chinos. Made from 100 percent indigo-dyed cotton, this is a rugged denim shirt that’s going to get better and better the more you wear it this spring and summer. Heck, in a pinch, you can even throw this shirt on underneath a lightweight navy cotton blazer for conference call-friendly style. The fit is tailored but not overly tight, the construction is next-level, and the price ($105 at Buck Mason) makes this one of the best shirts for men to buy right now. Like, right now.
