Overshirts for men – Dressing for seasonal transitions like summer to fall and spring to summer or fall to winter can sometimes be tricky. We recommend you to dress in a way that you’ll be warm enough for when it gets a bit cold out on the streets but also cool enough for you to make a run for the office when in a hurry. An overshirt or shirt jacket is sort of a hybrid between a jacket and a shirt and is a perfect option. This versatile garment is often made of slightly thicker material than what’s used in regular men’s shirts, so it’s understandably more durable and heavier. Overshirts for men are lighter than a full-fledged jacket, and it is meant to be worn over a regular shirt or sweater when it’s chilly and under an overcoat or jacket when it’s colder. It’s not made to fit like a regular shirt and is somewhat worn looser. These qualities make men’s overshirts perfect wardrobe staples. They’re also suitable for all men, whatever their height, size or build. Our shirt jackets conveniently fill the gap between jackets and shirts and can also be a great alternative to other casual outerwear like sweatshirts and hoodies. The overshirt is essentially a light jacket so you can wear it closed or open. When worn open a good choice is to use contrasting colours, such as a light shirt or sweater with a dark overshirt or vice-versa. Avoid too many crashing colors or patterns, the overshirt should do most of the talking. As overshirt and shirt jackets fabrics are stiffer and thicker than a shirt, you shouldn't tuck it in your trousers or roll up the sleeves. So, go ahead and simply use a overshirt instead of a shirt on a chilly day, or combine it with underwear and outerwear once the winter has arrived. Overshirts for men are also perfect to wear as a shirt once inside.
