A little louche, a little formal

Hopefully this won't offend anybody...

I am looking for a stylish, yet slightly louche shirt to wear with a DB shawl-collar dinner jacket, most likely without a tie. I'm looking for black and white versions. I've done a lot of looking at some vendors (Marol, 100 Hands, Isaia, etc) but haven't found exactly what I'm looking for. If possible, I'd prefer to buy RTW...I live in NYC, so MTM is not out of the question.

In my mind, I'm seeing something with a generous but soft collar roll...or maybe a single-piece collar. Not exactly sure and now I've hit analysis paralysis, so I'm sending this out to the greater group of StyleForum.

Thanks!

If you wanted to max out on the louche factor, why not go for something really GTH?

How about an open-necked, ruffled-placket shirt?

This assumes that you are thin, very handsome and without a luxuriant chest rug. of course.
