    Besides saving the USPS, there is only one thing I care about right now: camp collar shirts. Already popular on the menswear scene, the Hawaiian/cabana shirt hybrid has finally crossed over to the masses. The open collar style, known as a Cuban collar, was born from '50s leisurewear. But in true 2020 form, it's gotten a lot more chaotic. Sure, there are beautiful embroidered knit iterations akin to what Baby's dad wore in Dirty Dancing, but the ones I'm most interested would fit in perfectly in Guy Fieri's closet. And I mean that as a compliment.

    Every designer is participating in the trend lending it both high and low appeal. Prada's split shirts are an fashion-crowd favorite, Bode's handmade styles have a cult following, and various streetwear brands' versions have prompted fans to collect them en masse. Camp shirts are the upper body answer to Patagonia baggies, and not safe from being memed. The style's overt tackiness is what makes them so great to experiment with, whether you use them as a beach coverup or introduce them into your WFH uniform. They come in pretty much ever pattern—zebra stripes, patchwork florals, and even a billiards scene. They're nonsense, and we love it. Prepare to be addicted.
