Office shirt

This is a staple of the business casual look if you want to look smart without having to don a suit. This is also the best choice if you need to wear a tie for work.

If you want some real quality in your wardrobe, invest in high-quality poplin, two-fold cotton. If you don’t need to wear a tie, add interest to your outfit with herringbone, Oxford and twill textures.


This is the ideal choice if you like a denim look but need something lighter. It is also a hugely versatile option, as this kind of shirt will look amazing when teamed with almost anything. Chambray is a smooth, soft and unbelievably comfortable fabric to wear.

Classic short-sleeve shirt

Whether you go for high-street staples or designer Farah shirts from retailers such as, a classic short-sleeve shirt is a wardrobe must-have. The options are endless to make the look your own as you decide between plain styles, stripes, pastel colours, geometric patterns and tropical printers.

These shirts are born to be worn untucked but can also be tucked in for a smarter look. They look great with shorts and with trousers, although there are some fashion rules to abide. Never wear a short-sleeve shirt with a suit, and make sure the sleeves reach mid-bicep at least.

Denim shirt

Give your manliness a boost with this classic workwear shirt. Team it with a full suit or unstructured blazer for a sharp look with a casual edge. Don’t be afraid of teaming up quality denim. You may have heard about the double denim ‘ban’; however, contrasting dark crisp denim with well-worn faded denim can actually work really well.


Linen is a great alternative to an Oxford on hotter days thanks to its light and airy qualities. Team yours with chinos or jeans and think about experimenting with lighter, pastel colours. Roll up your sleeves and wear your linen shirt with shorts or head to work in pale blue or white, still managing to retain a smart appearance whilst adding a summery twist.
