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?

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:  
The softly rolled lapel.  The Duke's jackets had a gentler waist suppression than you might expect from jackets today.  The elegance of the jacket comes less from a suppressed waist, and more from a beautiful shoulder.  It's neither too sloped nor too straight; it's smooth and well-made; and it's precisely proportioned in width to his head.  Compare Mr. Disney's suit shoulder, which is artificially straight and too wide, or the King of Jordan's shoulder, which is cut too...
