While Basquait’s artwork has been licensed to many brands over recent years, a couple shirts from Wacko Maria stand above the rest as some of the best use of his artwork so far. This Hawaiian shirt is 100% rayon and it’s bright, detailed print is top notch. This could have easily been a tacky piece but it’s just well done and actually reflects the legacy of Basquait’s art without feeling phoned in.

It won’t be long til the remaining summer heat dissipates into crisp autumn air. Put away the t-shirts and take a look at these five shirting selections for Fall.
Black Pinstriped Patchwork Button-Down by Junya Watanabe
Junya has got shirt-making down to a science at this point in his career. Details abound on this joint from the artfully chaotic patchwork to the small spread-button collar. Really nice button placket and shirt-pocket on this and a shirttail hem. A nice update to the classic pinstripe shirt. $580 via SSENSE
Red Suede Shirt Jacket by Our Legacy
Our Legacy is a brand that has a continually puts out interesting shirting season to season. There’s not too much to say about this red suede joint. If you like luxury but wanna be low-key and not ostentatious about it, this shirt may be a worthwhile investment. Be wary wearing this to the bar, but know that if you do, people are gonna be asking to touch you. Horn buttons and snap front pockets make this easy to throw on and something you won’t likely have buyer’s remorse over despite the hefty price tag. $740 via Tres Bien Shop.
Noizig Print Shirt by C.E (Cav Empt)
I’m still a little tight about missing the Simulation shirt by C.E from their SS13 collection. Luckily redemption can still be found. I googled the word noizig and still have no idea what it means, but that’s beside the point. The greyed out sky print goes hard and C.E has been selling briskly since the brand reached North American shores. Stay ahead of the pack and cop with confidence. $266 via BDGA
Undercover Men’s Cotton Overshirt by Undercover
Like most guys I used to wear shirts that were way too long untucked because I didn’t know any better. This is like that the well designed version of that in the form of an overshirt. Designed to be worn over oversized, feel free to throw a t-shirt or slimmer button-down underneath this joint. This is a versatile layering piece that you can pair with either short bomber-style jackets or longer parkas or overcoats. The crisp cotton material looks great and has two functional pockets. £360 via Oki-Ni.
Elbow Patch Double Pocket by ts(s)
If you’re gonna buy a plaid shirt, either get a really cheap one or ball the fuck out and get one with some extra bells and whistles. Made from a unique plaid flannel and with navy elbow patches on each side; this is an undeniably good-looking shirt. While you may get lumberjack comments from plebeians rest assured that this one shirt is better than anything they’ve ever owned. $625 via Haven
For this weekly covet I am featuring the Visvim Social Structure shirt and jacket. I have been a fan of raw denim for quite some time because I do enjoy the process of my jeans slowly fading and evolving over time. However in the transition from summer to fall, a comfortable wash trumps everything. The unfortunately part is so few brands know how to do tasteful washes with well thought out attractive details. Visvim is the master of taking staple pieces and adding just enough to make an item that both stands out and has the ability to stand the test of time. Visvim produces several items with its Visvim Social Structure wash. Made with custom 8oz Okinawan cotton denim and a carefully distressed finish.
As always with Visvim the pricepoint is not for everyone, recently I saw the denim jacket at Bergdorf Goodman retailing around $1200 USD. If you have the dough however I am sure this purchase will not be regretted.
