OK, we haven't reinvented the wheel here, but what we have done is elevated the humble denim shirt from casual classic and turned it into something befitting even the most dapper man's wardrobe.

With understated cowboy-inspired details (note the pearlescent buttons, pockets and stitching across the chest), these shirts look great when smartened up with a pair of tailored pants. Think of it as a sort of cattle ranch-to-catwalk vibe: ideal for a swanky night out with Kanye/your buds.

For a harder edge, double up on your denim and cement the heavy-duty look by pulling on a pair of hefty boots. Not just a great look for all off-duty builders, but also for anyone looking to give denim's workwear heritage a subtle nod.
