Unlike sleeve length or fit around the chest, there's no way for your tailor to change the button stance on a shirt, so the next time you come in to try stuff on, double-check to make sure that you like how you look buttoned up and undone. And if one doesn't work out, don't forget that we've got a ton of other brands, from the easy fit of James Perse's shirts to the more tailored look from Shirt by Shirt.
Artificial Flavor polo in gunmetal and periwinkle, $60 each
