The seasons may end, but The Rite Stuff‘s Bantam Cotton-Linen Short Sleeve Work Shirt will last forever. Short sleeve button-ups are incredibly versatile. And even a bit underrated, and this one is as nicely constructed as they come. You can wear them to more formal affairs all buttoned up, or you can wear them open with a nice white tee, as comfortable casual as can be – while still looking good.
Made in aprtnership with John Lofgren, the Bantam is rinsed once to remove most of the shrink and make for easier sizing. This Japan-milled indigo selvedge chambray is comprised of 75% cotton and 25% linen. In fact, all of the materials on this shirt were made in Japan, from the thread, to the cotton tags. The shirt features 1920s repro star-shaped urea buttons, triple-stitched yokes and side seams, a chinstrap, nicely shaped flap pockets on the chest, as well as a slot for a pencil on one of those chest pockets.
