If you ask your favorite Brooklyn style writer (ha!), I think every guy’s wardrobe should be filled with heavy hitters, reliable menswear essentials that can work in practically any style situation. Take the classic chambray shirt, for instance. Originally a workwear staple, the textured chambray fabric is at once rugged and yet versatile, more casual than your favorite Oxford shirt yet easier to wear (in terms of comfort) than a starched dress shirt.
And the Buck Mason L023 Chambray Shirt is a prime example of the style, and yet another way in which one of your favorite menswear brands delivers, well, some of the best menswear essentials.
It’s part of Buck Mason’s ongoing Menswear Spring Preview, an assortment of picks new and old made to be mixed and matched for practically anything your upcoming calendar throws your way. If you’ve been reading the blog, you know that Buck Mason already makes one of the most rugged spring jackets, along with dependable pieces like stylish men’s chinos and the best men’s henleys. Helpfully, this chambray shirt falls right in that same wheelhouse.
The Buck Mason L023 Chambray Shirt is one of two pleasing, timeless washes in which you can snag this soft, 100 percent indigo yarn-dyed cotton chambray shirt. It’s outfitted with a buttondown collar and chest pocket for casual style points (unlike a traditional dress shirt, which usually forgoes a chest pocket).
Beyond that, the Buck Mason L023 Chambray Shirt is just an utterly classic option, made to be layered over a Buck Mason henley and jeans, or styled with Buck Mason chinos and leather loafers at the office. If that sounds like an agreeable spring style combination, I’d urge you to move forward with picking up a new spring favorite.
