Popover Short-Sleeve Shirt, $70 by Wharf

Popover Shirt

The popover shirt is a great alternative to a knit polo or long sleeve woven button-down. Combining the thin fabrics and checks of traditional shirting, the half-placket gives it a casual feel, while the curved shirttail hem looks tailored when worn untucked—not that you'd usually tuck a shirt like this in. Last summer, Rhode Island's Wharf made a few of these shirts in a summer-friendly seersucker and they sold out fast. The shirts are hand crafted in New England and priced at well under a hundred bucks, so it's easy to see why. Don't miss out on the newest version, made from pinpoint cotton in a versatile red gingham.

Styling Tip

Memorial Day weekend's coming up. This'll look great with white jeans and blue boat shoes or driving moccasins.
