Warmer Weather Means Lighter, Brighter Spring Shirts
Want to switch up your daily dressing routine? Get yourself a bright, new, spring shirt. We like ours in colors and cuts ranging from classic chambray to bright florals. Easy to wear with slim chinos or white denim, breaking out a new spring shirt is the best way to welcome in warmer temperatures and say hello to the season of bar crawls, baseball games, and beer outdoors.
Todd Snyder Short-Sleeve Floral Print Shirt $128

It’s a seasonally (and sartorially) appropriate way to greet sunny weather. And luckily for you, shirts from Todd Snyder blend quality with an excellent fit and the kind of style that’s worthy of an investment — and worthy of a spot on our list of the best spring shirts.
Bonobos Washed Button-down in Washed Green $88
The brand that makes your favorite chinos continues to add to its impressive menswear arsenal with pleasingly versatile and casually stylish shirts — like this washed button-down. It’s a prime way to inject a little sprezzatura vibe into your office ensemble with that color that calls to mind the Mediterranean in spring. Wear it with rolled white jeans and suede chukkas on casual Friday.
Bridge and Burn Franklin Plaid Shirt $118
Lest you think red-and-blue plaid only has its place in winter, think again. Bridge and Burn — makers of everything from excellent outerwear to A-plus shirting — have hit the nail on the head yet again with the Franklin Plaid Shirt. The pattern and color combo scream “summer barbeque” more than “winter wood-chopping session,” so you should consider giving it a go now.
GANT Slim Fit Tech Prep Chambray Shirt $125
Chambray readily sits among the few fabrics that are true four-season essentials. And when you throw a little 21st-century technology into the mix, you’ve got yourself an all-around winner.

You definitely don’t have a shirt like this in your closet.
Abercrombie and Fitch Two-Pocket Chambray Shirt $35
