Is there some guy of rule most of you have, like I will normally wear this shirt 1 x every 2 weeks when justifying whether to buy it or not?
I have a OCBD red/white striped shirt and a red/white Gingham OCBD shirt for casual wear. I've never worn them with ties though.

I have a Richard James casual shirt in bold red stripes. For business wear, I only have a white and burgundy hairline stripe, but it's very muted. I'd like a red gingham shirt for business wear in summer, but I can't find a nice one.

I have shirts in red and white puppy tooth, red and white gingham, red and white stripes, red and cream stripes, red stripes on pink ... and one red Oxford cloth (of course, the white tones it down to a deep pink).

I reserve solid red for knit shirts.

I have a bright red shirt from Express, not really too dressy but it's nice with a blazer once in awhile, mostly for new years or christmas.

The red and white gingham checks in a variety of scales are always nice. I have an Acorn shirt fabric which is red with white stripes. It's a great looking shirt. I am also considering a solid bright red or a darker ruby red for casual. I might even get french cuffs on them to show off some crystal cufflinks.

hi film noir buff, the shirt i'm acutally looking at is at your website on the article

http://www.filmnoirbuff.com/article/is-paris-burning

where the loro piana fabric book are the 2nd one. The red cotton linen shirt, would you think this to be good shirt to make? The farbic is pretty expensive so pretty hesistant to be using so much money on a red shirt. Ever make anything from the cotton/linen book?

Loro paina's shirt fabrics are very popular but I wouldn't spend this much on what would be for me a limited use shirt. Also, I personally do not like cotton/linen blend shirts, nor am I a big fan of solid shirts. But don't let that stop you.

And no ... they are not red dress shirts ... but I forgot to list all the red on blue shirts ... the red stripes on blue ... the red windowpane on blue ... the red grid on blue ... etc. ... etc. ... etc.

Perhaps I have too many shirts.

I have several...

The totally RED one is a Thomas Pink thing (sort of a crappy brand really) Its Cranberry Red. Classic Collar Dark Colored Buttons... Bought that in London (dont know if they ever had it here) Never wear it...

My absolute favorite is a RL Purple Label Keaton It has a GREAT solid red body and the collar is white. I've worn that one to church a few times.... keeps me interested, and repels the old ladies. (I also bought the same solid ones in bright green, mint, navy, purple, royal blue and a pimpin black - all this white collars)

My close favorite runner up is another RL Purple Label Keaton It has a red/white heavy double stripe body. The collar is white.

My 3rd favorite is another RL Purple Label Keaton It has a red body/ with fine white stripes. The collar is white.

if you're looking for summer dress shirts then i think you should stick with pastels. otherwise a wine red/maroon dress shirt is the way to go.
