Thanks in advance

 

I can't say for sure, but I just got a pair of Luxire pants back from the tailor that fit near perfect except I needed a 1" waist decrease. I was nervous it'd change my seat/hip/thigh fit but it didn't at all. Waist is now perfect and everything else fits just as well as it did before. Not sure about length, but overall length, front/back rise and inseam are all certainly correlated.

I only have experience with the affordable end of things, but every plain-woven white shirting I own is impossible from a wrinkling point of view. White just shows wrinkles more. I have a pair of shirts from MyTailor in ostensibly the same $80 fabric but one is white and one is pale blue. I can iron them up side by side and the blue looks great and the white still looks wrinkled. Lustrous fine white is no different, but I can tell you that it feels a lot nicer than that MyTailor fabric and looks like a million bucks when commercially laundered and pressed.

For me, white dress shirts are not for daily wear.

Yes, it's very 'old man-esque' to wear an undershirt so I don't sweat on the shirt at all.

So what you're saying is get a twill or some type of weave other than plain?

That said, I can't speak to the difficulty of ironing because around here you can get illegal immigrants to launder and iron your shirt for $2.50.

 

I am surprised you say that. That lustrous white is the most wrinkle prone shirt I own by a fair margin.

I never understood the undershirt thing. Is it for hygiene?

Because I shower before I wear my dress in the morning, and I always wash my shirts, so I'm not sure why I'd wear a shirt under my dress shirt but not under a normal shirt, let alone at all.

(Unless it's a see-through, or a body heat problem)

What alternatives to the lustrous fine white are there that don't wrinkle as much and are not transparent such that it can be worn without an undershirt? I have a bunch of swatches, but a bit hard to tell from them.

It really is an old man thing regardless of any possible utility, but this part in particular is what gets you the eyeroll:

Heavy sweating may be an issue for you but it's silly to assume that "everyone" shares your problem. I'll go months between perspiring at all in any situation where I might wear a dress shirt. (Then again, I don't wear mine when working out or anything. Your mileage may vary.)

Heavy sweating isn't an issue for me. Regardless, maybe I should rephrase "As everyone should." to "I thought everyone did." I figure shirts are as good an investment as any and wearing an undershirt just helps prevent any stains at all. 

To each his own I guess. It really is a silly argument regardless.

 

ETA: Yes, I shower before I put my shirts on as well.

I wear an undershirt for a couple reasons. 

 

1)  So the antiperspirant and underarm stains do not get on my dress shirt.  A $15 undershirt is a lot cheaper than a $90 dress shirt. 

2)  I do not wash my dress shirt after every single wear.  I am not talking about wearing dirty or stained dress shirts, but an undershirt allows less washes of a dress shirt over the course of its life (for me). 

 

My undershirts are V-neck and not peeking out of my collar.

People don't wear undershirts!

+1 for the undershirt team. Its just routine for me. Doesn't feel right without one. I also only wear v-necks and in the majority of the cases, its impossible to tell I have it on.

+1 to all this. Also my undershirts cost $5.99 from H&M smile.gif

I also use this strategy (except I use a deep-v so to be sure not shirt shows). 

 

It's especially useful while travelling when you can't be certain of finding a reliable 24hr dry cleaner.
