White shirts everyday? - Page 5

post #61 of 66
I wear a white shirt most days with jeans or with tailored clothing. To me there is nothing better than the perfect fitting white shirt.

It's okay if you're Don Draper of Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce. But have more colors for variety you dig!

I agree.

Of course, Tom Wolfe does it. But then again, you're not Tom Wolfe are you...?

Sometimes it is very subtle things that separate the good dressers from the bad ones, and the stylish, from the tacky. If there is one thing to pick up from that show it is less is more.

I've noticed white shirts look more agreeable, on me at least, when the suit itself is light-colored. Perhaps you're right that the shirt isn't so much the problem with my ruddiness than the dark navy is.

Yep, it's not a particularly novel idea:

I wasn't necessarily being critical (I don't like the look in the photo, but I suppose in solid navy it might look nicer), more surprised as I'm just struggling to imagine a suit fabric knotting well, unless it's a fairly light in weight.. Most wool neckties I've seen tend to feel quite different to wool suit fabric (softer/fuzzier/more open... ie. more "knottable", I guess).

I wear white 3 times in week but add some colored stripes/patters in there too.

When I was picking up my shirts today from my tailor his assistant said to me, "You really need to wear something else besides white, man. You could use some color." He is lucky the elevator doors closed.
