The Thursday Buy: This Classic Billy Reid Shirt is A Timeless Winter Style Move

It’s fitting that on today of all days (that’d be Thanksgiving!), we’re talking about one of the best men’s shirts, and a timeless style move, at that. It’s the time of year where classic, crisp and versatile is going to serve you well. Even if your go-to jeans or your post-Thanksgiving or holiday party pants have an extra bit of stretch, for instance, you can still look plenty put-together otherwise. That’s where one of the country’s best menswear designers enters the equation by way of the Billy Reid Tuscumbia Shirt, a classic men’s shirt in a rich and seasonally friendly pattern, one that’s going to look as great years from now as it does this holiday season. You might be too late to wear this stylish plaid shirt to your Thanksgiving get-together, but it’s one of the best winter men’s style moves you can make for the weeks and months ahead.

Billy Reid already makes a full rotation of menswear classics, including the best men’s peacoat on the market, plus a stylish casual sweatshirt (both of which you can wear with the Billy Reid Tuscumbia Shirt, as luck would have it). The Billy Reid Tuscumbia Shirt goes well above and beyond what you’d expect from your typical buttondown shirt, starting with that engaging, bold (and Billy Reid-exclusive) plaid pattern. That it’s done up in rich autumnal color is an added bonus, but it’s really made to be worn the rest of winter as a striking pop of color and pattern.

With the Billy Reid Tuscumbia Shirt, both the big-ticket touches (like premium horn buttons and a modern fit), plus the small details (like signature Billy Reid detailing at the shirt hem) are taken care of in a way that you can trust. The Billy Reid Tuscumbia Shirt is also made from a lightweight 100 percent cotton, so you can wear it underneath a stretch wool blazer or your favorite Billy Reid cardigan as easily as you can wear it on its own if you’re in a warmer climate for the holiday season. The box-pleated back allows for more ease of movement if you happen to wear this shirt to the office, say, underneath an unstructured cotton blazer or with the famed Billy Reid Dover Sweatshirt. It’s so much more than just your average buttondown shirt, which is why it does indeed retail for a higher price point ($168, to be exact), but having tried out favorites like Billy Reid’s denim shirts over the years, I can certainly vouch for this one. If you want a shirt you can trust this winter through situations dressy and casual, the Billy Reid Tuscumbia Shirt is your new go-to style move. So, with all that being said, I’m wishing a Happy Thanksgiving, and a healthy (and stylish!) weekend with family, friends, great food and great clothes. Cheers!
