How to wear a white shirt - Page 21

manton how do you feel about this pairing?

I'm not Manton but if I were I would say that everything here is great. The flannel suit, ancient madder tie and OCBD all go great together and I don't think a non white shirt would improve this look.

Don't wear a red tie with a white shirt. Burgundy is ok. Either a navy, or charcoal suit.

What makes the Gable outfit is the fact that the shirt is a BD.

I wish I had enough money to have more colored shirts and ties to go with my two suits. But for me being a broke college student its hard. I have two fairly nice white shirts. I wear them probably too much, but when I have the money I will dive into more colors. But I do love wearing a white oxford shirt, khakis, and sperrys for a daily outfit.

I believe there are two varieties of white shirts. The first is the clean, pure white, poplin/broadcloth, point collar variety. This shirt should be worn with a suit. The second is the oxford cloth, button down variety - especially if it has a heavy fabric with texture. Further, many of these white OCBD shirts are not pure white; they are frequently "off white" if you will - egg shell, cream etc.. This shirt can be worn with a sports jacket successfully. (See Clark Gable pic above.) I believe this distinction is important for this thread. To make up a rule for all white shirts does not make sense to me.
