How to wear a white shirt - Page 29post #421 of 5223/14/13 at 2:00pm

Read about the first 10 pages and picked up some good info.
As I understand, and please correct me if I am mislead, if you are thinking about white, a blue will probably go better.
For the Imams of SF, what say you to white OCBD or even a twill paired with casual/semi-formal pants such as khaki or gray or brown or navy chinos with a brown/burgundy/tan cap-toe lace up oxford such as an AE strand or blucher such as an AE burton for a business casual environment where suits or ties don't fly? Are white shirts okay here or just forget it and go with blues and patterns with a base of white?

I'm late to the party, but the story that white shirt is "upper class" and "non-manual labor" is a bit of a legend contradicting centuries of peasant fashion: most peasant/laborer shirts were made of linen in natural or white color. The same is true of the guayabera shirts - also peasant work shirts in SE asia and latin america, and also typically in white.
Adam Smith himself spent some time explaining how a white linen shirt is an example of the absolute minimum level prosperity below even the lowliest peasant cannot/should not conciveably fall.post #430 of 5221/26/14 at 1:59pmpost #431 of 5221/26/14 at 2:00pmpost #432 of 5221/26/14 at 4:16pmpost #433 of 5221/27/14 at 2:26ampost #434 of 5221/27/14 at 3:12amQuote:
Though this may need to wait a few months. Or I can just say seasonality be damned. I've already done it once.
