JFK, being interviewed by Walter Cronkite:  
An interesting twist to the question, inspired by the previous posters, is: what were you wearing when others took a photograph?
She was definitely using the phone as a camera.  First time it's ever happened to me, as far as I know.  Usually my soporific wardrobe guards against any interest. It reminds me of a recent New Yorker article by Gary Shteyngart on Google Glass.  Get ready to be recorded all the time in a few years. 
Thank you Cleav.  The contrast between Charles and Cameron is quite instructive:     Speaking of politicians, here's LBJ in his entry for this week's navy-on-navy contest:     The Duke of Windsor with a cutaway collar:     Robert Redford, receiving an award from then President Sarkozy:  
When you're in public, in a subway or walking down the street, have you ever seen someone take your picture without your permission?  Seems rather odd and intrusive.  I was with my wife on the T in Boston tonight when a woman pointed her iPhone in our direction.  I imagine that forum members who dress more formally may sometimes face this situation.  What do you do?   
Great thread and entries.  Some inspiration for this week, featuring Robert Redford:
B and D by far.  The trouble with A and C is that they're distracting.  The eye focuses on the small deviations from the pattern being perfectly straight up and down, especially on the edge of the tie.

I would agree that a white shirt would be too urban and formal, and too stark a contrast to wear with country tweeds.  But the warm earth tones of cream, light beige, or tattersall check can look quite good, as tdude mentioned.  See these Esquire November 1934 images, posted recently on the London Lounge:       Here's Prince Charles wearing a tweed jacket with a cream colored shirt in 1979.  The beard would fit well at Pitti Uomo:
