Camp Shirts Are the Only Button-Ups You Need in 2020


Besides saving the USPS, there is only one thing I care about right now: camp collar shirts. Already popular on the menswear scene, the Hawaiian/cabana shirt hybrid has finally crossed over to the masses. The open collar style, known as a Cuban collar, was born from ’50s leisurewear. But in true 2020 form, it’s gotten a lot more chaotic. Sure, there are beautiful embroidered knit iterations akin to what Baby’s dad wore in Dirty Dancing, but the ones I’m most interested would fit in perfectly in Guy Fieri’s closet. And I mean that as a compliment.

Every designer is participating in the trend lending it both high and low appeal. Prada’s split shirts are an fashion-crowd favorite, Bode’s handmade styles have a cult following, and various streetwear brands’ versions have prompted fans to collect them en masse. Camp shirts are the upper body answer to Patagonia baggies, and not safe from being memed. The style’s overt tackiness is what makes them so great to experiment with, whether you use them as a beach coverup or introduce them into your WFH uniform. They come in pretty much ever pattern—zebra stripes, patchwork florals, and even a billiards scene. They’re nonsense, and we love it. Prepare to be addicted.


Tobacco Flag Patchwork Shirt



Bode’s latest collection is so good it literally keeps me up at night. Harry Styles, who also keeps me up at night, wore a custom lace style in his ‘Watermelon Sugar’ video, but I’m flagging this shirt as my current fave. 


‘Rocket Lobster’ Cabana



Tombolo’s cheeky designs range from terrycloth to a sold-out style adorned with a swirl of spaghetti. Yes to everything this brand does. 


Yellow Flowers Van Hajo Shirt

Daily Paper x Van Gogh Museum


Nothing says ”I took Art History 101″ quite like this masterpiece.


Les Coquillages Satin Shirt



If you envision yourself on a yacht in the near future, make sure you pack a Casablanca shirt. No one does silky styles quite like this label. They recently launched womenswear, but there’s nothing stopping you from wearing both collections. 


Copacabana Silk Shirt



Seriously, this brand is so good I’m including two of their shirts. Take a dip in this one.
