What: Solid Black Shirt by Theory, $265
Why: There was a fantastic article in The New York Times, Sunday Styles on February 3rd discussing the trend for men to dress in an understated, more refined style. This sexy, masculine look communicates confidence and cool with little effort. And we couldn’t agree more. To achieve this look, we think every guy should add a straightforward, well-cut black button-down shirt in his wardrobe. The Theory Black Shirt is one my favorites because it’s made with luxurious cotton and a little nylon for stretch, has a slim (not fitted) silhouette, and uses quality stitching and buttons. Dress it up with a suit and tie, or pair it with dark denim and sneakers. Guys will get a lot of use out of this fashion essential. For the casual ensemble, leave the shirt untucked and keep an extra top button undone for a relaxed, cool look.
