The denim shirt is having a moment
As proponents of classic style, we’re not too big on trends here at HSS. Here today, gone tomorrow, that’s not really our thing. That’s not to say trends don’t come along that we find interesting and worthy of appropriation. And sometimes the thing that’s become a trend isn’t trendy in the way we normally view that term, but rather a classic item that experiences a rebirth. That’s the case with the denim shirt – one of our favorite “trending” menswear pieces of the moment.
Of course, there are a wide variety of denim shirts out there. Lighter in color, darker in color, button-down or cutaway collar, Western versions and more formal versions. There’s really a denim shirt for most occasions these days.
But beyond being so versatile, my favorite aspect of a denim shirt is its ability to bridge the formality gap in both directions. It can dress down a double-breasted suit, elevate a casual look, or be the perfect way to give a weekday office look an extra shot of style.
A denim shirt helps bridge that seasonal gap as well. Cotton and linen is a great warm weather mix any day of the week.
Thanks for reading.
