Now that most of us have overcome our once debilitating fear of short-sleeved shirts, designers are setting us new challenges. Enter the Cuban collar shirt – the open, almost notch lapel-like collared style men in the 50’s couldn’t get enough of. And we bet you’ll soon be spotting this old-time favourite on style-savvy men – everywhere.

A Cuban collar short-sleeved shirt is the ideal piece to shake things up. Cut slightly boxier and less fitted than your Oxford button-downs it’s a great alternative for our hot summer weather.

The style itself is low-key so feel free to go a little wild with the pattern. We like this paisley version by Ben Sherman. A lot.
