We're not really quite sure why they call it what they do, but Dave's Quality Meat Inside Out Flannel Shirt ($79) is a quality fall garment. With plaid flannels coming back into style this season, Dave's Inside Out wears well with classic, large plaid patterns in either red or navy, button cuffs, a front chest pocket, and all the lumberjack flair you can handle.
Made to honor the company's 125th anniversary, the new line of Hamilton 1883 Shirts ($165-$185) combines the best of the old with a taste of the new. Built of the company's bespoke tradition, these recreations of six of the company's most classic designs — including the long-sleeve oxford, utility, western, and white collar, as well as the classic short sleeve and pullover — are tailored with a slimmer cut to better compliment modern attire, and come pre-washed and ready-to-wear. They may be expensive, but if they last one-fifth as long as the company has, they're still quite a value.
Support your favorite Viking while paying homage to past gridiron glory with Nike Tradition Defined Jerseys ($80).

Amazing.

Perfect for a lazy weekend, the Gap Fitted Two-Pocket Shirt ($45) is more casual than a traditional button-up, yet twice as functional.

Every man needs a simple, classic, wear-with-anything white button-down, and the Gitman Brothers Vintage Oxford ($121) is one of the best we've seen. With a fit and details influenced by 70s and 80s styles, this shirt features a 100% cotton build, a V-stitch pocket, a narrow split yolk, and a back collar button down. In addition, it arrives pre-washed to its true size, so you don't have to worry about it shrinking up the first time you clean it.
