The Wear-Anywhere Shirt
That Doubles As a Pre-Fall Jacket

Taylor Stitch California Micro-Cord Shirt

California micro-cord shirt, $125 by Taylor Stitch

Give your wardrobe an easy punch by adding some surplus style. Call it olive drab, army green or simply olive, but the rich shade of green can be found in a range of shirting styles going into the fall—and for good reason. It's a classic and masculine color that's almost on the verge of beige. Meaning it works as a modern neutral. These shades of green pair particularly well with saturated blues and denim as well as chinos and trousers in shades of grey. For a few of our favorite labels, the color makes the ideal tone for rugged shirts that can be worn on their own or layered over another shirt as a lightweight early fall jacket alternative. It's all the style of a vintage field jacket without any of the bulk or weight.
