Summer Obsession | The Button-down Shirt

When summer rolls around, especially in the unforgiving Southern California desert, the amount of clothing one wants to wear becomes minimal. The fabrics become thinner and less, socks become non-existent and pants get shorter or become shorts. So, when I am looking for the perfect outfit it will always consist of rolled up chinos or jeans like my new lightweight Acne beige Bin chinos, sockless Vans Authentics, and my obsession for every summer; a button-up shirt. A few of the favorites are the Steven Alan single needle plaid shirts, the Gitman Bros. Vintage long sleeve blue oxford and any plaid shirt, and the Nom de Guerre Officer Desert Corp Shirt in Grey. All are good options to keep your cool and can be used in colder weather as well since all are equipped with long sleeves.
