Mix Things Up With This Silky Velour Buttondown Shirt

NYC-based label Todd Snyder is back with a stealthy and stylish way to feel like the coolest man in every room this holiday season: an upscaled overshirt cut from ribbed velour.

Velour — a fabric favorite for the sartorially confident, F1 drivers, international playboys, etc. — is cut from a soft Portuguese cotton blend in this case and finished with ribbed detailing for a corduroy-inspired presence with the plushness of velvet. It's met with two chest patch pockets and button cuffs at the sleeves for extra polish. An open hem, meanwhile, keeps mobility high.

As for the silhouette, Snyder and company note it's "tailored enough to be worn on its own, but generous enough to be a layering piece over a t-shirt, turtleneck, or Oxford shirt." We say throw it over a crisp white t-shirt and pair it with your favorite Persols. And if you're feeling particularly devil-may-care, a tailored grey sweatpant in place of jeans or chinos will unlock a special kind of style.
