Despite previously being lost in the sartorial wilderness at times, the short-sleeved denim shirt is now here to stay and gathering steam fast with the style set.

While the denim shirt may have its humble origins in workwear, it’s no longer defined by it; this blue-collar staple is easily paired with everything from smart tailoring to shorts. But make sure you get the fit right – you don’t want it to be big and boxy, rather opt for a snugger fit with short sleeves that don’t hang over your elbows. That’s a style no-no, unless banana farmer your desired look. Oh, and be sure to give your gnarly winter elbows some much needed moisturising before exposing them to all and sundry.

Button up your button-down and nail the look with Tom Tailor.
