At Kirrin Finch, we use the term button-up shirts, because it is all encompassing: all button-down shirts are button-ups, but not all button-ups are button-downs. We use button-down collars on our oxford and short-sleeve shirts. Both these shirt styles are more sporty, so pair well with the more casual button-down collar.
Regardless of the origins of the shirt and its original purpose, the button-up shirt remains a wardrobe staple for men and women alike across the world. You can dress it up with a suit and tie, or dress it down with jeans and sneakers. To get a new menswear-inspired button-up in your closet today, check out our shirt collection.
