Keep Cool and Casual in Short Sleeve Shirts

Short sleeve shirts are a necessity in any man’s wardrobe, for day and night, indoors and out. Indeed, you can never have too many shirts in your collection, especially at the rate they can be worn. While you’re stocking up, be sure to check out the wide range of men’s dress shirts, for more formal requirements.

Sporting clever

There are many iterations of the short sleeve shirt, so let’s start with the essentials: the casual sports shirt. Great for active wear, as well as walks on the beach, evening runs and getting dirty in the park with the little ones. Made from cool dry pique polyester material, they help soak up the sweat and control moisture with light micro mesh. This helps to avoid embarrassing sweat patches. If this is something you suffer from anyway, opt for darker colours which are less revealing.

Living for linen

Great for every day wear, from daytime get-togethers to catching up with friends, linen shirts are a must-have item. There’s a large selection to pick from on eBay ranging from small to 2XL, and in a variety of colours. Popular choices are tones of blue and creamy white, which work well with any type of trouser and colour. Whether you choose for buttons, or a loose kaftan style shirt, you’re sure to look effortlessly cool.

Work uniform

If you’re looking for a standard short-sleeve shirt for going to the office and meeting clients, Dickies has an impressive range. Smart enough for face-to-face meetings, but casual enough for an after-work drink, this go-to shirt gets great reviews for its tailored fit and choice of colours. Available in shades of blue and green, why stop at one?

Great for layering

When the weather takes a turn but you don’t want to give up the short-sleeve shirts, opt for a loose-fit like Stubbies cotton drill top or a linen version. These provide just enough room for your favourite men’s t-shirtsto be worn underneath, or if you’re feeling brave enough, maybe just a vest.
