The right shirt can make or break the comfort and function of an entire outfit. Contemporary materials make active wear and base layers unbeatably functional with the capacity to wick sweat away from your skin, prevent odors and obstruct the sun's unrelenting UV rays. More traditional fabrics, such as cotton and wool, are also comfortably breathable and warm. Active men can find shirts for every activity. Polos and button-ups give a more polished look for brunch, golf and social events. T-shirts are also a fundamental requirement, great for many relaxed events as well as a range of activities, such as hiking, frisbee, biking and lounging.
