Our Story

Welcome to Short Steve Button Downs (SSBD, for short).

Founded in January 2019, Short Steve Button Downs was formed to solve a personal problem: finding something nice to wear when you know you're going to sweat. I was tired of that incredibly uncomfortable, sticky feeling that accompanies wearing cotton during the summer. As a lover of short sleeve button downs (SSBDs), it seemed like an obvious choice to create a breathable version since all of mine were 100% cotton. From happy hour to the bars or golfing to hiking, our shirts aim to provide comfort for every occasion.
