Newbie question here from someone with very little knowledge of dress shirts, ties and jackets. I have a job interview in a couple days for a full time position at a company where I currently work part-time. The company dress code is pretty casual, and I was told by a friend in management not to wear a tie and jacket, just "some nice pants and a dress shirt".
I have a slim frame and had a hard time finding an off the rack shirt that didn't leave my mid-section swimming in fabric, even the ones labeled "slim-fit". I finally found a nice Strellson shirt that fits me very well, and was $100 off the regular price, but I'm not sure I should wear it without a tie.
As you can see in the picture below, it has a white strip of fabric on the button side of the shirt and around the inside of the collar. I think this white fabric really stands out when the shirt is unbuttoned.
What do you guys think? Can I wear it like this?
I also bought this Strellson shirt below with a spread collar, but I don't like the fit as much and not sure I like the way the collar sits when it's unbuttoned.
Any advice for a newbie would be much appreciated.
Thanks very much.
