The short sleeve button down shirt can be a bit tricky to pull off.  With the wrong fit, or print, you run the risk of looking like anyone from Homer Simpson to the stereotypical nerd in just about any campy movie from the late eighties.  That being said, with the right fit and print, a short sleeve button down shirt can be the absolute perfect choice for a hot summer day.  If you’ve been leery of adding a short sleeve button down to your wardrobe, we’d recommend testing the waters with the Madras Club Collar Shirt ($45) from Lands End Canvas.

Like we said, the right fit and pattern are key to a great looking short sleeve button down shirt, and this one has both.  The fit is quite trim, so you aren’t going to look like a poorly dressed tourist, and the red, blue, and yellow pattern is definitely a good look.  With a button pocket, and chambray lined neck and placket, Lands End Canvas made sure to throw in a couple of small touches to set this shirt apart even more, and we are loving it.  Paired with a beat up pair of khaki shorts, the Club Collar Madras Shirt is going to be a hit this summer for sure.  One more thing, there is one rule that should never, ever, be broken when it comes to short sleeve button downs; don’t tuck it in.  Ever.
