21 Best Casual Shirts for Men in 2022: Denim Shirts, Oxford Shirts, Flannel Shirts, and More

If you’ve spent most of the morning googling “casual shirts for men,” it’s probably time to narrow down your search. In part, that’s because “casual” is a term of a frustratingly imprecise nature. Relaxed in relation to what, exactly and according to whom? An Oxford cloth shirt with a button-down collar might look more casual than, say, a gingham dress shirt, but it’s the former we wear the most, often with our grooviest ties. (We don’t know who needs to hear this but…you’re better than the gingham shirt.)

The infuriating nature of your search is also linked to the fact that the very meaning of the word casual, especially in relation to the way we dress, has never been so changing. These days, wearing a shirt — you know, one with a collar and buttons — is its own form of rebellion. And when you’ve spent the last eight quarters emailing in a rotation of scruffy, worn-out t-shirts, the shirts you once considered the pinnacle of casual cool look downright stuffy by comparison.

Luckily, we’ve been covering the button-up pace with the urgent attention it’s demanded for years, putting us in a unique position to answer all your hard-hitting questions about the best casual shirts for men. And answer them, we did, in the form of 21 perfect options you can get your hands on right now.
