Long-sleeved button-downs aren’t exactly the smartest choice in a summer garment. As in, it’s the kind of thing you wear when you have to, not when you need to dress up in a comfortable manner. That, however, won’t be the case with the Corridor x American Trench Cotton & Linen Button-Down, which lets you dress up in a smart and refined manner without succumbing to the prevailing heat.
A three-panel shirt based on a vintage 50s-era pattern, the button-down provides a trim and flattering fit that’s just loose enough to keep things relaxed. The best part? It looks like a proper button-down, making it perfectly suitable for wearing to the office, to a dinner, or to your college buds’ wedding, all without being too dressy, so you can pair it with jeans for a casual day out.
The Corridor x American Trench Cotton & Linen Button-Down’s Japanese-woven fabric splits the cotton and linen in an even 50/50 blend, giving the whole thing excellent drape while remaining very breathable. It also won’t wrinkle endlessly like pure linen shirts, so you can still look reasonably fresh at the end of the day. Chain-stitched seams provide durability and excellent shape, while the wide shoulder and tapered waist should make you look more dapper than usual. Features include shell buttons, a single chest pocket, and a lightweight build that should feel great on the body, no matter how long you’ve been decked in it.
Available now, the Corridor x American Trench Cotton & Linen Button-Down Shirt is priced at $165.
