Style Pick of the Week: American Giant Supima Oxford Shirt – The Best Oxford Shirt for Men to Buy Now

Is there anything that American Giant can’t do? The made-in-America retailer has you covered across the board with staples like one of the best polos for men and plenty of the best USA-made menswear, and you can add another item to that list: One of the coolest new Oxford shirts I’ve seen in some time, made with all the quality you’d expect from the famed retailer. I’ve grown to appreciate the brand over the years for its commitment to durable designs and fabrication in all respects, right down to its affordable bundle of T-shirts, and they’ve really hit the nail on the head once again with the American Giant Supima Oxford. It’s a step up in terms of everyday style and dressy appeal from a brand that excels at making casual style staples, and if ever you wanted more of the best American-made menswear in your life, well, here’s your chance to start stocking up on pieces like your new favorite Oxford shirt. What makes this classic piece so essential? My friends, I’m glad you asked.

Naturally, the American Giant Supima Oxford checks all the right boxes from the very start, including the use of that soft Supima cotton fabric, all the better to make this a shirt you can truly live in. It’s also made in Los Angeles, another step that signifies quality and attention to detail throughout. That USA-made build is also why it’s more expensive than your average Oxford shirt from a fast-fashion brand – the American Giant Supima Oxford clocks in at $118, but it’s more than worth the price tag.

It’s your new favorite shirt for work or play, and easily one of the best shirts for men that you can buy right now. Take your pick from classic Oxford Blue or crisp White, both of which are downright essential and easily wearable with plenty of your other wardrobe staples. Team either option with classic slim blue jeans or tan chinos at the office or on the road. Wear the American Giant Supima Oxford to the office tucked in underneath a classic fall blazer, or break it out this winter underneath a rugged shawl cardigan with your favorite pair of blue jeans. Any which way you slice it, the USA-made American Giant Supima Oxford works as hard as you do.

A single chest pocket and that buttondown collar are details that keep this Oxford shirt firmly classic and ready for anything, especially for business casual style at the office. And the best part is, you can even wear the American Giant Supima Oxford with other picks from American Giant — try it untucked atop an American Giant cotton T-shirt, for starters. It also works well buttoned up and then layered underneath an American Giant crewneck sweatshirt, a look that’s ready for the beer garden or a Friday meeting in equal measure. When you find a well-fitting, well-made shirt like the American Giant Supima Oxford, it’s absolutely in your best interest to step up to the plate and snag (at least) one for yourself.

Although it’s only just now the end of August, the time is still here to stock up for fall with one of the best shirts for men, the kind of shirt you can wear all day long. The Billy Reid Offset Pocket Shirt, my friends, is that very shirt. It’s available right now for under $100, making it a fine Tuesday Steal, but any way you look at it, it’s one heck of a fall shirt to buy now and wear from August into September and well beyond. It’s part of the Billy Reid Final Sale section, sure, but that doesn’t mean it’s of subpar quality, design or construction. In fact, it’s quite the opposite. It’s pretty rare to find one of the best men’s shirts for fall up for grabs at this point for under $100, and that’s just part of the reason why you should add this classic Oxford shirt to your wardrobe (don’t worry, future posts will dive into another #OOTD on how to wear an Oxford shirt for men, for instance). Plus, the fact that the pocket is placed in a slightly different spot than average is pretty neat.

Design perks aside, focus on adding this shirt to your wardrobe and reaping the rewards as far as versatile, affordable style is concerned.

As far as the best men’s shirts are concerned, Taylor Stitch nearly has the market cornered, and it’s been that way for a good while now. The San Francisco-based brand, which you can also find my Shop By The Style Guide, has built a fervent following through attention to detail, solid construction, great fits and constant innovation. The latest result of the brand’s chase to build one of the best shirts for men? The Taylor Stitch Jack Oxford Shirt in Navy University Stripe. It’s one part preppy, one part classic and plenty wearable and stylish any way you slice it.

The brand has got a knack for doing plenty of different things the right way, be it the best adventure shorts or an investment-level jacket, and it certainly helps that they’ve long been making one of the most classic men’s shirts to pair with style staples new and old. The Jack Shirt from Taylor Stitch is very easily the stuff of legend, and the kind of shirt you build a brand around (Taylor Stitch launched, after all, with a focus on making the perfect men’s shirt). They’ve definitely cleared that high bar with the Taylor Stitch Jack Oxford Shirt in Navy University Stripe, and it’s just the latest, coolest pattern to get the “Jack” treatment, if you will.

SHOP: The Taylor Stitch Jack Oxford Shirt in Navy University Stripe

The Jack Oxford Shirt checks off a few critical boxes as far as what you need in your Oxford shirt. It’s designed to be worn tucked in or untucked, making it ideal for business casual situations (tucked in, paired with tan chinos) or worn untucked with an expertly crafted pair of Taylor Stitch denim. Crucially, the Jack Shirt from Taylor Stitch is built from a substantial but not overly heavy 6oz. 100 percent organic cotton, giving you some sustainability plus style. The Jack buttondown collar, another staple of this design from Taylor Stitch, is nicely sized and has a bit of a roll to it, like classic Oxford shirts.

Beyond that, the navy university stripes call to mind that classic all-American style of decades gone by, and yet, it’s a shirt that looks as fresh as anything out there today. The buttondown collar is a way to bring your suit down a notch (I’m thinking of a classic patch pocket khaki cotton suit, worn with a knit tie to an outdoor summer wedding). However you choose to rock it, the Jack Shirt from Taylor Stitch, especially in a preppy stripe pattern with natural buttons, is a suitably stylish way to cap off your next summer #OOTD. In fact, as far as shirts that make or break an outfit go, this one definitely helps take your look from good to great.

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).

SHOP: The Filson Chambray Buttondown Shirt

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.

Check out today’s See Now, Buy Now entry to stock up on one of the best men’s shirts for winter and beyond — the Filson Scout Shirt. It’s the kind you can wear in casually rugged fashion for the rest of this season and on into spring, to say the least.

How does that all work out, exactly? Reader, I’m glad you asked. Of course, the brand starts with a lightweight-yet-durable and easy-to-layer cotton twill for maximum versatility (think neither too burly or too lightweight on the fabric front).

We previously talked about the versatility of the Filson Scout Shirt here on the blog for the warmer months, but believe me when I say it’s got plenty going for it as far as cold-weather layering is concerned. The cotton twill fabric of this rugged men’s shirt means you can wear it easily atop a classic Filson henley or a Filson thermal shirt for cold winter days in the yard or the garage, and you can even layer that combination beneath a waxed Filson jacket for maximum warmth. The military-grade buttons ensure years of durability, and the yarn-dyed fabric is made to resist fading over time.

The fit should prove easy to move around in and layer without being too baggy or too tight, either. Any day of the week (even for a Zoom call when worn atop a Filson pocket T-shirt), the Filson Scout Shirt  simply comes through in the clutch. One last styling tip: Wear it with Filson men’s jeans for the ultimate in all-day style, including a coffee run, a park stroll and brewery to-go beers. I’d call that one of the best men’s winter shirts, wouldn’t you?

Best shirts for men

Trust me — this might be the coolest shirt you can get your hands on.

Sorting through the best shirts for men — or really, any retailer’s shirting offerings — is sometimes quite the taxing exercise. Where to begin if you want a shirt that’s unique yet subtly stylish, and also not too wild? The Howler Brothers Gaucho Snapshirt could be the way to go (at least, your friendly neighborhood style writer thinks so). It’s potentially one of the best men’s shirts for spring and summer, and it starts with the fact that it’s got a design unlike any other on the market (check out the front chest pocket designs). Howler Brothers takes great care in making gear that’s technical while blending the modern and the retro (take the Merlin Jacket as seen in this post on how to wear a denim shirt). Thankfully, the Howler Brothers Gaucho Snapshirt embraces those same qualities quite handsomely, featuring UPF15 sun protection baked right into the shirt — that’s not to mention the style points it’s got going for it.

The Howler Brothers Gaucho Snapshirt just keeps winning in matters of functionality, too — it’s made with quick-drying fabric for breathability and ease of movement all day. To me, that means you can pair up the Howler Brothers Gaucho Snapshirt with slim light wash denim and your favorite chukka boots for a casual day of patio beers, or you can wear it with a stylish vest and tough field pants (plus the Huckberry Duck Boots) for a spring day hike.

A closer look at the details that make this shirt so essential.

Of course, I’d also recommend you wear that same outfit for post-hike plate of farm-to-table food. It’s all about the versatility in style (and in your lifestyle) that a piece like the Howler Brothers Gaucho Snapshirt brings to the table (and your closet). And the rest of the small details make the Howler Brothers Gaucho Snapshirt easily one of the best men’s shirts for spring and summer,  from the vintage-inspired pearl snaps to the microfiber-lined chest pocket. It’s really tough to top the Howler Brothers Gaucho Snapshirt, don’t you think?
