Buttondowns can be clutch for everything from doing projects (hello flannel!) to going out with friends (a casual oxford) to a formal interview.

I think you’ll get a good feel for these brands from the images we’ve chosen. There are flannel options for cozy fall days, sharp short sleeve buttondowns for going out with friends, and snazzy dress shirts for formal meetings and occasions.

I’d like to shout out two brands in particular that have very specific offerings: if you are looking for a linen buttondown with a mandarin collar (and I assume you know who you are), head over to 31 Chapel Lane for some gorgeous options. And if you need formal business shirts in lush organic cotton, the answer is British retailer Arthur & Henry. For all other needs, browse below!
