How to Wear and Style an Overshirt



Call it a dressed-up way of dressing down. The overshirt, a trend in its current form originating all the way back in 2015, doesn’t have one solid definition. But, what it does do is multifaceted: Add warmth as a layer, emphasise the casual side of your dressy-casual ensembles, and introduce a light jacket – one more polished than a hoodie or sweatshirt – that also doubles, at least style wise, as a button-down. Following the lead of many up-to-date menswear trends, the overshirt – also called a shirt-jacket or simply a shacket – started decades ago as a practical garment, the fatigue shirt worn by the military in the early 20th century. Its construction started with heavy-duty, durable cotton – similar to modern work shirts’ cotton duck – and added various pockets to the outside – presumably for holding onto and organising small pieces of gear. Later, outdoor brands adopted its design for hiking, mountaineering, and other exploration-leaning pursuits. Eventually, by the ‘80s and ‘90s, double shirts – usually a T-shirt with a larger, heavier-weight button-down on top – became commonplace in everyday wear.
