Reclaim the button-up with the Vernon Shirt! This boob-friendly take on the essential button-up shirt features two views: View A is a classic shirt with a traditional collar and collar stand, and full sleeves with narrow cuffs. View B is a fashion-forward version with a dramatic collar, covered button placket, and lantern sleeves with wide cuffs.
From flannel work shirts to posh statement tops, the Vernon can do it all—and with cup sizes from C–H, thoughtfully placed bust darts, and side seam shaping, you’ll get a fabulous fit from collar to hem.
