Sreepathy posted on 17 April

It’s hot. It’s muggy. And it’s definitely going to get worse. That’s Bangalore summer for you. But don’t let the soaring temperatures put your style quotient out of order. Whether it’s nailing that summer casual look for the office or for that Sunday brunch at one of the city’s many boozy brunches, we’ve got you covered. From bold prints to solid hues, we have compiled the best-button down shirt brands where you can pick up summer-ready shirts for men. And the best part is we have tried to keep it as pocket-friendly as possible.

Varnam

Home decor and lifestyle store Varnam’s collection of quirky and colourful summer shirts has this writer already booking an Uber to the store’s newest location in Jayanagar. Their cotton shirts are inspired by their popular Channapatna toys with a contemporary take on the traditional hand-block printing of Sanganer, Jaipur. You will find these shirts feature the popular Varnam toys such as owls, dragons, cows, giraffes, and elephants as the designs. These shirts are priced at INR 1,150 upwards and can be shopping online here or you can head to their Indiranagar or Jayanagar outlet.

Jayanagar’s decor store Stance has a collection of men’s shirts in handwoven cotton featuring hand block prints. The prints include quirky designs ranging from auto rickshaws and grand limousines to simple and traditional geometric designs. The playful designs are what we recommend because they do bring out the fun element in summer. These shirts start around INR 900 for full sleeves.

Trust H&M to do floral prints and colours {red, blue, yellow, and white} that announce the arrival of summer {and their summer collection}.

United Colors of Benetton

This is our go-to brand for all things summer and comfy. While it’s their chinos and shorts that we most often pick, their collection of shirts is equally worthy of being in your cart. Pastel, light {yellow, blue, pink}, solid hues {red, magenta, green}, and a couple of odd floral prints or stripes are what Benetton’s collection is all about. Prices start at INR 999 and we suggest that while you are picking up a few shirts for everyday wear as well as occasion wear, why not pick up an entire ensemble to get your summer look sorted.

Cottonworld

Dad approved brand for cotton and linen shirts, Cottonworld is one of those many Indian brands that offers plenty for men. And when it comes to their summer-ready half sleeve shirts, they follow the run-of-the-mill styles in the form of light shades such as off-white, cream, white, and grey, casual and regular fits, and keeping the designs to the bare minimum of plain, striped or checkered. Another reason why this brand is dad approved is that it’s on the pocket-friendly side with a shirt starting at INR 1,000.
