I'm about to get a new shirt to replace the one I have which is frankly quite unflattering to wear without a coat. It's tentlike, and the double cuffs don't quite get along with my cufflinks or fold correctly. Also, the fabric wrinkles like a bitch. So... I think I'm going to draw inspiration from James Bond. White, medium spread collar, placket front, split yoke, and turnback cuffs (I don't really want to have to buy a lot of cufflinks). The fabric won't be Sea Island, but a high grade wrinkle-resistant broadcloth. Shirt will be by Baron Boutique. Anyone think this is a particularly bad idea? I'm not necessarily trying to be like Bond, but I do really like the style of his shirts back in the early films. The turnback cuffs look especially tasteful even today. As far as colour, there's a brighter white and a softer one. Which would you go with?
