See Now, Buy Now: The Filson Chambray Buttondown Shirt is the Most Rugged Shirt for Summer

It’s really hard to go wrong with a brand like Filson, right? Even when it comes to making one of the best chambray shirts for men, yes? That second part might seem a little odd — after all, doesn’t Filson have a heritage and a knack for making some of the best outdoor gear for men? In that case, what do chambray shirts have to do with it? Well, actually, they’ve got more to do with it than you might think. Filson‘s reputation as a Pacific Northwest outfitter with more than 100 years of rock-solid production is quite admirable, and that’s led to some innovations, twists and turns along the way. Filson certainly makes some of the best men’s gear for summer, and some of the best lightweight short-sleeve shirts for seasonal adventures aplenty. And on top of that, they make reliable, durable and surprisingly stylish off-duty gear, like the Filson Chambray Buttondown Shirt. Unexpected? Sure. But no less well-made than any other piece of Filson menswear, right? That’s 100 percent correct, my friends.

When you want to go with something more rugged than refined, something with more guts and grits than wearing your favorite polo shirt, a chambray shirt is just the way to go. The textured weave of a chambray shirt makes it harder-wearing and better-suited for use in, say, a workshirt, which is exactly what sets this Filson long-sleeve shirt apart from the pack. And this certainly isn’t any old, flimsy shirt either (hey, not all chambray shirts are created equal).

No sir, Filson makes “unfailing goods” (the brand’s famed tagline) for a reason. Now, the Light Indigo Chambray iteration of the Filson Chambray Buttondown Shirt has been a hot seller, but who says you always have to go with blue shades of chambray? Opt instead for the Oxford shirt-esque, yet extremely rugged, White Chambray version of the Filson Chambray Buttondown Shirt , then reap the rewards. The 5oz. cotton chambray is a nice mid-weight that should provide protection from the elements on your camping trip or in your garage, and it should also still prove easy to layer atop a classic Filson men’s T-shirt. The open chest pocket and button-down collar are also style moves that make the Filson Chambray Buttondown Shirt more akin to an Oxford than a workshirt. But since it’s Filson, you can wear your new favorite shirt any way you please this summer. That’s the Filson way, and the brand doesn’t offer up anything less than the best.
