My husband likes those buttoned down shirts from surf shops, but they are pretty expensive, like $50/shirt.
I can make him one but really don't know how to look for the material.
It's not the crispy cotton. It feels like knit but it's woven.
It's buttoned down but looks casual (not officy) because of the material.
I think it has some poly in it.
Some of them are solid color but has the texture to it...
but how do I search it?
I get my fabric from www.fabric.com.

The example of a shirt is
Quicksilver shirt
Thank you!

The info on the shirts says:
yarn dyed 60% cotton, 40% polyester blend.
so start with searching yard dyed shirting.....basically that means the design is woven in vs being printed

Islands Fabric on line has poly cotton in a 65/35 blend. I haven't bought from the website but I visit their store in downtown LA regularly. The provide good value for price.
