ShirtsHere's What Your Next Denim Shirt Should Look Like
Every day of every month at GQ, we start your morning on Instagram with visual advice on What to Wear Today. But we want to go deeper. Give you the nuts and bolts of how to get the look into your wardrobe. Today we're walking you through a slightly bolder alternative to the basic chambray shirt.
You may or may not have noticed that denim's gone to a crazy place lately. Whether embroidered with colorful patches or all but completely destroyed (and yet, no less expensive), standard blue jeans are no longer very standard-looking. The same goes for your trusty denim shirt. Instead of chambray or lightly distressed indigo, shirts are painted on, patched up, and ripped and repaired for a totally different effect. We like the trend for two reasons. 1) It makes wearing double denim easier. Nothing and everything goes with shirts this crazy. And 2) it differentiates you from the 30 other guys wearing denim shirts on any given Saturday.
Here are a few we like, from pricier brands that really know what they're doing.
