TEE TIME: If the ideal pair of jeans is the pot of gold at the end of any girl’s fashion rainbow, then a perfect shirt is the treasure every guy is hunting for. Whether he’s laid back, dressed for success or somewhere in between, we’ve got the ticket. For starters, when it comes to casual Fridays or weekends on the course, the Nike Men’s Modern Argyle Polo always fits the bill. In 100% poly Dri-FIT fabric with a retro (but not kitchy) argyle design, he’ll reach for it over and over again. Find it at Golf Galaxy for $65.
LOOKING SHARP: Nobody does buttoned-up like the Brits. Take Charles Tyrwhitt’s White Herringbone Classic Dress Shirt as a case in point. It’s a steal at $59 (or four for $199), plus this smart site even offers customizing options like monogramming and sleeve shortening for minimal extra charge. Add matching ties and cufflinks with the click of a mouse, and you’ll be movin’ up to the corner office in no time.
COOL CUSTOMER: For a night that could take you from dive bar to VIP room to after-hours lounge, you need a shirt that can go anywhere without getting lost in the crowd. Two words: pearl snap. We love this Benjamin & Roth number in white with contrasting stitching. Get it from Dean-Kingston for $148, then pull on some jeans and you’re good to go wherever, whenever. (Just add wingman.)
