    Suggestions for weekend/casual short sleeve shirts?

    I need some suggestions for short sleeve shirts. most of my polo shirts are company logo'd. i have 2 Nautica button down, and a bunch of t-shirts.

    Just looking for more options, any brand suggestions too.

    I really like this style of shirt of casual stuff:

    They feel like a t-shirt, but look slightly nicer. Obviously, wait for sales.

      Bonobos makes some nice polo shirts as does Jcrew if you are looking for something without a logo.

      If you are looking for something less expensive then Gap has fairly nice polo shirts for the price:

      As far as t-shirts go; try and mix it up a little bit with henleys and v-necks. The athletic fit v-necks from target have always been some of my favorite and you can pick them up for $10 each.

      Whatever you do stay away from graphic Tees

        I have a couple of the banana republic polos and they are very nice, feel just like t-shirts. Also, as a heads up on them. During this current "random" sale of 30/40/50% off you can manipulate the cookie into giving you 50% off (I did yesterday when ordering two pairs of chinos). Slickdeals has the breakdown on how to do that.

        I'm totally the odd-man out here, but I like some graphic tees. I like the "artsy" ones. For example, this is one of my favorite t-shirts (http://www.designbyhumans.com/shop/f...c-tshirt/7556/). It certainly isn't "stylish" but then again I'm not trying to be when I wear it. I think it's a fun t-shirt with a cool design. I think I lean way more smart casual than the other people on here though (I only own three plain dress shirts, I like bright colors, and I wear very loud socks).

          I stick to a basic, classic style for my polos, like the J. Crew vintage or repp polos, and in just a few basic colors: navy, light blues, and white.

          I also do a few t-shirts that fit well, i.e., trim and slim. Again, J. Crew makes some good ones. And again, I stick to just a few colors, mostly navy and grey.

          Beyond that, I have a striped nautical long-sleeved t-shirt and a long-sleeved navy polo for cooler summer days. My other summer go-to shirts are thinner long-sleeved button-ups that I usually wear with the sleeves rolled up.

            Picked up some Old Navy "lightweight jersey polos" that are exactly what they say they are: a thin t-shirt with a collar. May not last longer than a season but they are very comfortable.

            I like madras shirts for summer. In past seasons LEC was a good place for short and long sleeve.

              I wouldn't mind a short-sleeved madras, actually. But only for very casual wear, not work.

                Not the odd man out, I too wear graphic tees from time to time (mostly band or record label shirts) and don't consider them an utter faux-pas like many menswear enthusiasts. Like you, I'm more casual that most here.
