The Best Men's Shirts at Every Price Point

All this buttoning and unbuttoning. It’s time to talk about the best men’s long sleeved shirts. Looking for short sleeves, tees, henleys? We’ve got you covered there as well.


Uniqlo’s Slim Fit Oxford regularly goes on sale for less than fifteen dollars. It’s an incredible value in general and a godsend for anyone who needs to build an office wardrobe on a tight budget.

Confusingly, there are frequently many SKUs of this product on Uniqlo’s casual men’s shirts hub, with no detectable differences.

I’m a fan of the navy color in particular.

There was a time when I basically lived in these. Versatile, durable, affordable.

In addition to wearing well and being easy to care for, Twillory’s formaldehyde-free, non-iron, SafeCotton shirts include some fairly badass brushed nickel collar stays- a very nice touch.

Twillory Performance Shirts, $50/each when buying 4 or more.

Twillory’s Performance Shirts are super soft, super light, and maybe the coolest button up shirts I’ve worn, even compared to tencel. While they do feature 4-way stretch, I wouldn’t call them “stretchy”, with just the right amount of give. They’re not as impossible to wrinkle and easy to steam as Twillory’s SafeCotton, but they do resist wrinkling pretty well.

The Western Rise X Cotton is about as technical as cotton gets. In short, it’s water and stain-resistant, stretchy, breathable, durable, and super soft. A perfect intersection of outdoor apparel meeting the workplace.

A perfectly tailored, perfectly weighted, wrinkle-resistant merino shirt you’ll want to own multiple of.


The holy grail of shirts. A 100% merino you could cycle in, hike in, dress up with a blazer, turn into your new work uniform, or make your go-to travel top.
