Not Just for Work: Tips to Style the Button-Front on Weekends

Yes, we all know the classic Brooks Brothers button-front is the first thing a man reaches for when he gets dressed for work in the morning. Because it’s a shirt that knows how to work hard. But it can play hard, too. So why not take it out for a spin come the weekend? Here are three ways to do it.

Brooks Brothers Weekend Style

1. Leave the top two buttons undone and throw on a sport coat for a date. Finish the look with dark jeans or classic chinos and loafers in leather or suede.

2. Roll the sleeves and try it with colored chinos to barhop with the guys. Give the chinos a couple of rolls if they have a narrow-leg cut and slide into boat shoes, sans socks.

3. Shrug it on (completely unbuttoned) over a tee and swim trunks at the beach. Once that ab workout you’ve been doing starts to pay off, go ahead and skip the tee.

It’s time to up your shirt game. Our Brooks Brothers Boutique opened Monday, June 23, at 11AM ET.
