Stay Stylish & Sustainable: Best Men's Sustainable Shirt for Every Occasion

by Ketan Patel Our Better Plannet

With gender norms taking a back seat to personal style, men’s wardrobe is rapidly expanding. But the shirt stays the go-to choice for many. From button-downs to dress shirts, there is a shirt for every occasion. And the best part is that the shirt is extremely easy to turn sustainable, even in this era of fast fashion companies like Shien which exploit human and natural resources. 

The easiest way to make your shirts sustainable is to care for them and mend them, which allows you to wear them for years. This comes with its own set of troubles though as even the most well-kept clothes can lose luster and become rough on the skin after multiple uses. In such cases, it helps to have a tailor or sustainable store on the dial, which can help you with eco-friendly and ethical shirts that are within your budget. From hemp to recycled polyester, there are many sustainable options for shirts for all occasions. Each material comes with its own environmental nuances, which makes it essential for us to choose a fabric that has the least cost on the planet and the maximum efficiency in regards to what we will be using it for. For example, while hemp is great for the environment and hemp blends can make good casual and dress shirts, you might prefer a more absorbent material for shirts that you will wear when going on a hike. 

So in light of that, how do sustainable shirts for men or masc presenting people factor into our daily lives? 

You can wear a casual shirt to date and a button-down to work, both of which can be made of linen or recycled cotton. They can even be made from upcycled cotton scraps and when you can no longer wear the shirts, cotton shirts can be repurposed into makeup wipes or handkerchiefs. 

Silk button-downs, which are not vegan and can cause pollution, can be a biodegradable and natural way to look rustic and dashing, which is especially good for when you need to look like you have stepped out of a period drama. People dig that, so try to wear that to a wedding. Another thing you can do to show your commitment to eco-friendliness and style is to get vintage shirts. These can be worn to parties but avoid them in bars unless you wish to be called Mr.Darcy in a setting where you would rather be James Bond. 

Shirts are evergreen, whether you be masc presenting or not. Sustainable and ethical shirts for masc presenting people are available in various places, both online and offline, though as always buying stuff made from locally and seasonally grown fabrics that supports your community and the artisans in it is best.
