Beams+ Calls it Like it is With Their Crazy Button Down Shirts
A lot of brands mine the deep sartorial archives of the Ivy League for inspiration, but only Beams+ would have the temerity to crash all 142 pages of Take Ivy into a single button-down—aptly named the Crazy Button Down Shirt. And TBH, they’re probably the only ones that could pull it off.
(I don’t know how crazy something is after like 29 iterations and eight seasons, but branding and consistency and all that.)
Cut slim and made in Japan from a kaleidoscopic array of cotton flannels and fine-wale corduroys, these classically-styled shirts feature a button down collar, a patch pocket at the chest, buttoned cuffs and a rounded hem.
So, you could try to cobble together a whole prep-inspired look, or you could just wear an entire decade on your torso. Your call.
Available for $176 at Unionmade.
