A new favorite casual shirt that you can even wear with a spring or summer suit.
Who’s ready to get 15 percent off a classic men’s shirt from Freemans Sporting Club? That sounds like a resounding “Yes” to me, so let’s get to it. Now, in last week’s Sunday Sale, we talked about getting a deal on the best T-shirt for men for spring and summer, but we’re going to amp things up a bit today. Namely, remember your trusty rotation of casual buttondown shirts, the sort of shirts you’d wear to the office and now (mainly) wear on Zoom calls? Well, this is that shirt, and it’s on sale until April 30th (more on that in a moment).
That’s where today’s deal on one of the best shirts for men comes into play, because you’re going to have to really get dressed again eventually. Be it a summer wedding, perhaps a date or a coffee run or a brewery visit (those last two are favorites of mine in Brooklyn!), you’re going to need a new favorite shirt, which leads us to today’s deal on a new Freemans Sporting Club shirt. The Freemans Sporting Club CS-1 Shirt in Navy Plaid is about as classic as it gets, with all the bells and whistles that you need (note the tailored fit and the casual chest pocket), and nothing extra to slow you down. It’s part of the Freemans Sporting Club Archive Sale, which in and of itself is a great place to get the best deals on premium menswear from this New York City brand.

A great way to wear your new favorite shirt.
It’s one of the best men’s buttondown shirts for a reason, with a price tag to match (it’s 15 percent off at FSC, which drops the price to $187). Why spend that much on a shirt? I’m glad you asked. It’s a shirt you can call your own, an entirely unique and outstanding shirt from a respected fashion brand, the kind you can wear underneath a khaki cotton suit at a summer wedding or all on its own with your favorite pair of spring and summer denim, high-top sneakers laced up and sleeves rolled. And just as above, you can certainly wear one of the coolest shirts for spring with olive chinos and brown leather boots.
How many shirts do you have in your closet that are that versatile? Not too many, right? It’s also made from 100 percent cotton for breathability, and that means you can layer it underneath a spring bomber jacket or atop your favorite T-shirt with ease. Mother of pearl buttons won’t break or snap over time, and again, the fit is made to be worn untucked or tucked in. Yes indeed, the Freemans Sporting Club CS-1 Shirt in Navy Plaid is quite possibly your new favorite shirt for spring and summer, and remember: It’s 15 percent off through April 30th. Shop accordingly.

That construction means it works with high-top sneakers, with suede chukka boots, with rugged leather hiking boots … it’s as essential as it gets, no matter what you dream up.
