Through summer's doggiest and beyond, a super-light and breathable cotton poplin shirt with a hint of stretch is a must. One of our favorite options is from Buck Mason, the Los Angeles based menswear label that makes nothing but essential essentials.

Equipped with a flattering fit (shoulder-broadening back-yoke, anyone?), a soft double-laundered feel and just enough give, this is the perfect top for tackling anything from office dress to summer weddings to anywhere staying cool is necessary but a tee won't do. 

Available now in three colors, you can pick one up today for $95 through B.M.'s online shop.
