You know those tight short-sleeve shirts that have curved hems and button-down collars and all the levity of a piece of sugar-free gum? The ones where the fabric touches every square millimeter of a torso that’s attached to a head that (presumably) really likes to talk about Fun Things™ like crypto and Keto and Sundance parties? Well, rest assured that these Short Sleeve Leisure Shirts from 3sixteen are extremely not those, in the best ways possible.
Modeled after ‘50s open-collar vacation designs—re: the best designs—and made in the USA from a Japanese-woven Lyocell ripstop fabric, these aggressively casual, near-perfect shirts feature an exaggerated open collar, a patch pocket at the left chest, a straight hem, a hidden side hip pocket, and Urea buttons, mostly because I imagine nothing else made sense.
Is it as boxy as anything I have open in my 46 Chrome tabs? I assume not, but that’s probably good news for people who don’t enjoy alarming passersby with their choices.
