From covering a bikini to dressing down a sexy look to being the ideal layering companion, there's nothing that a classic denim buttondown can't do, which is why style stars are on a perpetual hunt for the perfect one.

After months of scouring flea markets for a distressed version that's retro-cool minus the stiff or itchy factor, we realized that our winner was under our noses all along. This Brendan distressed boyfriend buttondown by LA label Rails is made of 100% Tencel, so it's super soft and features a great relaxed fit. The natural-looking holes and raw shreds are a nice touch, too.
