The Manual’s Top 5 Spring Shirts

 

Hibernating season is well and truly over. From here on in, we’re not bothered about going straight home after work to hunker down. We want to roam the green spaces, eat al fresco and drink outside til after dark. This shift in season calls for some clever shirting. A shirt that will take you swiftly from the office to the park, am I right? Here are our five favorites to take you from work to play stylishly.

The Hunter’s Shirt by Ball and Buck

According to all American brand Ball and Buck, this shirt will serve as the most versatile piece in your wardrobe. Light and breathable for spring, the Hunter’s shirt is made from 100% cotton and features a fit designed to work for every body type. This super flattering peach hue is our fave…

Japanese Striped Broadcloth Short Sleeve Shirt by Apolis

This striped number packs one helluva sartorial punch. We love the tailored shape and hidden pen pocket. Apolis have partnered with a 90-year-old tailoring cooperative in Honduras to ensure each shirt is of a supreme quality. Awesome!

EPLA Buttondown by Epaulet New York

This marine overdye classic buttondown by Epaulet is a lighter alternative to denim for spring. We love that with every wear and wash this shirt will continue to fade, destined to be uniquely yours. Pre-shrunk for a super slim fit, this shirt was made to be worn with chinos or tailored shorts.

Slim-Fit Leaves Shirt by Club Monaco

If print is your thing, this Club Monaco shirt is for you. Made from lightweight cotton, this slim-fit shirt also features short sleeves so its ideal for staying cool in the spring heat, no matter how hot your commute gets.

Riviera Polo Shirt by Sunspel

This smart polo shirt was originally tailored for Daniel Craig for his role as James Bond in Casino Royale (just saying).  On closer inspection, it’s not hard to see why. Soft breathable cotton mesh, minimal detailing and a super slim cut. We’re sold.
