If you’re anything like me, perhaps you appreciate menswear styles that stand the test of time, that tend to look good from season to season and year to year, and even era to era. Take one of the best denim shirts for men — or in this case, one of the best indigo shirts for men, made from an innovative, modern fabric blend.
The shirt in question today is the Faherty Tried and True Shirt, released to celebrate the easygoing, coastal style-meets-rugged-classics appeal of the New York City brand’s 10th anniversary. And if you ask me, this shirt (a new favorite and possibly one of the best men’s shirts for summer) lives up to its name, and then some.
Faherty seems to rise to the occasion in multiple seasons, be it making a breezy knit shirt as one of the best men’s shirts for spring, or else going a touch more rugged with waxed outerwear, or a touch more versatile with stylish stretch chinos. And quite literally true to its name, the Faherty Tried and True Shirt is another fine addition to the brand’s stable of casual, laidback yet crisp shirts, shorts and chinos.
It starts with the light blue Vintage Indigo color, but the aforementioned modern fabric — a blend of Tencel and linen for stretch and breathability — helps things along quite nicely.
Four-hole urea buttons add a touch of contrast to the Faherty Tried and True Shirt, but it’s that soft wash that’s going to make all the difference this summer. It should prove comfortable enough to wear on its own, sleeves rolled up alongside your favorite pair of chinos at the office, but the Faherty Tried and True Shirt really excels in more easygoing yet classic situations.
Take the Faherty Tried and True Shirt for a spin with classic dark blue jeans for a timeless combo on cooler spring and summer nights, or wear this handsome indigo shirt atop a classic graphic tee or pocket T-shirt for days on the water. The thing is, with a comfortable and casually cool shirt like the Faherty Tried and True Shirt, you can do just about anything — as long as you add it to your wardrobe starting this weekend.
If you end up picking up this shirt, let me know in the comments — stay stylish, and thanks for reading!
