Spring Staple: The Short-Sleeved Sweatshirt

Short-Sleeve Sweatshirt – Top Picks To Buy Right Now

A killer short-sleeve sweatshirt is one of the most classic, and versatile pieces you can have in your Spring/Summer wardrobe. What was once a retro staple, the SSS is back in action for 2017 and I could not be happier. I honestly consider this bad boy my secret style weapon for Spring. Pair it back to a fun printed pant, or with your favorite jeans for a great everyday look, or layer under a suit jacket with slim trousers for something a bit more polished. I’ve taken a deep dive on the interwebs to round up some of the best short-sleeved sweatshirts for you guys below, enjoy! x – Preston

Short Sleeve Shirts You Need (without palm trees...

Preston Konrad in short sleeve shirtsAs the steamy days of July roll on, we’re getting less and less enthusiastic about our Summer wardrobe. Maybe if we were lucky enough to head to the beach every weekend we may feel a bit more excited about whacky tropical prints and palm tree patterns. As we dream of cooler temps (even 80 degrees will do) for now, we’re keeping things a bit more muted with short sleeve shirts in dark hues, small poppy prints, and classic patterns. We’ve rounded some of them up for you, after the jump:

The Cuban Collar: Your Summer Go-To

Oozing old school pizazz and charm, the Cuban collar is bringing us right back to the 50’s. Consider this Summer staple your go-to alternative to a traditional broadcloth or oxford cloth button down shirt. The cut is slightly boxier yet familiar, keeping you standing out from the crowd while not looking overly trendy. To make sure you’re actually getting a Cuban collar shirt, make sure to keep your eyes out for an open collar with a hint of a notch. The fit is slightly roomier than a standard summer shirt and the sleeves will always be short (think crazy bowling shirt from your favorite retro film). Because this baby is cut more generously (aka no skin tight, sweaty Summer situations happening) we suggest pairing it back to a slim, lightweight chino and a throwback slipper or espadrille.

The New Yorker uniform = black on black….on black. We’ve taken the all black everything look right into Summer by incorporating a black linen short sleeved shirt and lightweight chinos into our look. Keep the look slick and tucked in and opt for a cool pair of leather espadrilles to channel your inner Mister Ripley.

Beating the heat during an NYC summer while looking put together is no easy task. Avoid the sweat marks and keep your casual look tonal by opting for short sleeve button downs, canvas sneakers and your favorite pair of distressed jeans. We love an easy canvas tote bag for weekend errands, flea market exploring, and just to hold all of our shit.
