Feel the summer breeze in a stylish Cuban collar shirt. With a distinctive collar and short sleeves, they’re an easy way to jazz up an outfit and make a real statement. You can choose to wear them with a bold print or keep it plain in a solid color. These shirts look extra cool in bright shades like yellow, blue or green. Complete the look with chinos and sunglasses, and you’ll be donning the summer sun in style.
Like all the best things in menswear, the Cuban collar shirt is a must-have because it’s versatile. You could wear the same one to a summer wedding and again to the beach the following weekend.
This type of shirt is something of a comeback hero of men’s wardrobes. Also known as a revere collar or camp collar, it first came to prominence in the 1950s, but in more recent decades it was a shapeless garment synonymous with obnoxious tourists and Chandler Bing. That changed in 2014 when labels like Louis Vuitton and Missoni brought it back, refreshed, ushering in a new way to wear crisp, cleanly-cut midcentury fashion. The style has been growing in popularity ever since.
