How to wear a white shirt - Page 32

post #466 of 467
The thread I meant can be found at the internet archive link, on the second line of the thread you linked to.

I don't know if the collar is a major reason why it looks odd to me, perhaps a non-spread collar would seem better but I think if the shirt was a more "country" cloth like a plain oxford or a tattersall then the collar wouldn't matter so much.

Anyway it looks to me like your blue striped shirt wants to be a part of this:




Whereas your jacket and tie want a shirt more like this, which I imagine to be a wool/cotton blend (and I guess you could call that a semi-spread collar):

Wow, that thread is amazing. You are completely right about the issue of coherence. Thanks for all of the info. I will work on "rusticating" my shirts to go with that jacket, and get a navy blazer for when I want to wear a white shirt.
