Off the Field

These shirts look just as well on the baseball diamond as they do on the streets during a laidback night out.

DOs

Pair ’em with shorts
baseball-style button-down shirts go very well with shorts. denim shorts or chinos will do great. Style it with sneakers or sandals for an even more relaxed look.
As outerwear
buttoned-up or left open, this type of shirt looks great for layering. Wear it with long sleeve sweatshirts, t-shirts or a simple tank top.
• Bigger is better
Oversized baseball shirts give you an opportunity to play around with different silhouettes and proportions.

DON’Ts

Tuck them in
baseball players do tuck in their uniforms while they’re on the field, but for everyday wear, don’t do it.
Attend anything formal
this is obviously a very casual and sporty outfit that belongs far away from formal and solemn occasions.
Bootleg
Sport jerseys in general are, unsurprisingly, are quite expensive. but the quality drop (and moral burden) of counterfeit baseball shirts aren’t worth it.
