See Now, Buy Now: The Billy Reid Denim Shirt Is a Modern Menswear Classic

Billy Reid men's shirts

An unstoppably cool denim shirt with the right specs to stand up to years of wear.

Do you have a shirt you can’t stop wearing, the sort of shirt  you positively love to wear as often as possible? For me, the Billy Reid Denim Shirt is precisely that shirt in my own wardrobe. I’m calling it a classic men’s shirt for a a good reason, seeing as it’s wearable in each and every season and as often as you want. That’s the case whether teamed with a lightweight T-shirt on a breezy spring day or layered underneath a timeless shawl cardigan in the winter months. As for me, I’ve worn my own Billy Reid Denim Shirt to menswear events around New York City, rock concerts in Brooklyn and the famed Austin City Limits music festival (I hope to wear it back there some day!). But back to your new favorite shirt in the meantime, ehh? Naturally, it’s part of a well-stocked and highly stylish collection of Billy Reid best sellers, the kind of heirloom-quality menswear that’s seemingly simple on the surface… but so much more than that. It’s in the DNA of this Florence, Alabama company, and Billy himself has decades in the industry.

Right off the bat, it’s worth noting that you can get this denim shirt in multiple washes, including a lightwash denim shirt option, but the quality never falters (I also have a Billy Reid black denim shirt — can you tell I’m a huge fan??). Lest you worry about spending too much hard-earned cash on this shirt (it retails for $198 at Billy Reid, after all), know that mine has more than held up through years of wear.

Handsome details and rugged construction make this shirt a big-time style winner.

The Billy Reid Denim Shirt is quite possibly everything you could ever need in a casual men’s shirt, from the subtle yet noticeable detailing — note the contrast stitching and antique brass snaps — to the timeless fit. It’s neither too slim nor too baggy, meaning you can layer it atop a T-shirt or a henley as an overshirt just as readily as you can wear it all on its own to grab an ice-cold beer (I’m told Billy himself likes Miller High Life).

Part tailored jacket, part sweater, all versatility.

This classic denim shirt is as at home on a spring weekend stroll as it is grabbing outdoor brunch, manning the grill or packing up for a road trip (trust me — it’s breathable enough to be worn all day). Like all things denim, the Billy Reid Denim Shirt will also get better with age the more you wear it. If it’s an iconic everyday shirt you want, you’re in luck today, folks. Thanks to Billy Reid himself for knocking this one out of the park.
