The Best Western Shirts Are Just The Best Shirts Period

by MR Magazine Staff

f you own a Western shirt, you probably wear it a fair amount, if not every waking minute that you’re not at work. This classic button-up gives off a rugged, “good with my hands” energy that makes it equally appropriate at Home Depot and on a first date, and the structured yoke and snap-front pockets have a way of helping you look like you’ve been hitting the gym, even if you’re more of an all-you-can-eat-BBQ person. Top that off with the fact that they never go out of style, and you’ve got something that can easily snag the coveted Favorite Shirt status in your wardrobe. The indigo denim Western shirt is a standby, a classic move, but don’t sleep on all of the other cowboy shirt flavors—plaid flannels, corduroys, satins for the extremely Jeff Goldblum vibe. There are so many options out there, and they all bring something slightly different to the table. Here are a few we’re especially keen on, starting at just $50. See more at GQ.
