The Sport Shirt

The line between sport shirts and dress shirts is getting less clear; however, there are a few subtle differences. Sport shirts tend to have more whimsical designs and are, therefore, available in more color combinations and pattern choices. And today’s sport shirts offer up some pretty spectacular and modern motifs, from tiny florals to abstract, futuristic graphics. They often have detailed features like pockets and may be made from different fabrics such as denim or new materials that offer some stretch. Sport shirts are great for business casual settings. Wear them with jeans or 5-pocket pants/chinos. Toss on a great soft coat or leather jacket for dining out. Don’t be afraid to soften a solid dark suit to add a touch of fun for happy hour after work.
