Fact: You can’t beat a good sturdy work-shirt. This one, by HW Carter & Sons, ticks all the right boxes. The cloth is textured, the fit is slim, the collar is relaxed, and those two breast pockets (and the heavy buttons) add the perfect amount of utility without veering into unnecessary hyper-technical territories. Plus, it’ll look just as good dressed down with denim as it will with chinos and a relaxed sportcoat. It figures — the company’s been specializing in workwear since the 1850s. Now that’s what we call heritage.
