vs Goat


With fall weather looming, a short-sleeve shirt may not be on the top of your list for things to pick up. But hear out Mauro Farinelli, designer for Wolf vs Goat, about why they're still a great buy for cooler weather.

"Fall is a great time to dress in layers. Just throw on a sweater or a jacket, and it's still a good look," he says. Plus his shirts are made from quality cotton fabrics with vintage, one-of-a-kind mother of pearl or genuine horn buttons.

Farinelli knows that plenty of guys out there opt to cuff their long-sleeve shirts, a practice he disagrees with especially for shirts cut close to the body. "My shirts are slim already, so trying to roll-up one of my long-sleeve shirts is kind of a hindrance, so just buy a short-sleeve. The armhole is still fitted."

Indeed, the silhouettes on Wolf vs Goat's "Before Dinner" shirts are definitely tailored, and a nice plaid or deep indigo shirt is always a welcome addition to any man's wardrobe.

"People have a tendency to shy away from short sleeve shirts because they believe that the armholes are kind of huge, and can make a normal guy look dorky. The armholes are slim and accentuate the arms. Chicks love the guns."

Another item you didn't know you needed? His sweat shorts. The care tag label sums up everything you need to know about them, and once you get them on, you'll be lounging in style.

"Those things are mad comfortable," says Mauro.
