When you need a comfortable, high-performance shirt, West Marine has got you covered.
Men’s Button-Up Shirts
When you need a smart-looking, quick-drying shirt, look no further than our collection of button-down shirts. Many of these technical shirts can be converted from short sleeve to long sleeve styles, are vented for air-flow and comfort on hot days; and are made of specially-treated fabric that wicks away sweat, is water-resistant and includes an anti-microbial treatment to prevent odor.
Men’s shirts come in styles that hold up and look great whether you are sailing, relaxing or at the office. For sun protection, select one of our many boating shirts that includes an SPF treatment, which can range from 30 to 50 SPF. This ensures that damaging UV rays, intensified by the reflection on the water, won’t leave you hurting.
Men’s Polo Shirts
Breathability is key when it comes to looking sharp and staying comfortable. Men’s sailing shirts are lightweight and move easily so you can nimbly throw lines, come about and keep things running smoothly without restriction.
For casual performance, t-shirts can’t be beat. These shirts come in long and short sleeve varieties, in athletic, standard and slim fits. Many offer sun protection, water resistance, stain resistance and sweat-wicking properties. Quick-drying fabric ensures you’ll be comfortable no matter what your day on the waves brings. For maximum sun protection, opt for lightweight, cool styles with long sleeves and with a thin hood you can easily tuck under a hat to cover your neck and ears—areas that often get passed over when it comes to sunscreen.
