Hello, i am going to order 2 custom shirts online and I need some help with the design!
I'm going to order one black casual shirt, and one white shirt to be worn with a suit.
I want the shirts to be stylish, without being too boring.

I need some help with the color of the button and the color of the thread.
Here is some examples. First Black casual shirt:


White suit shirt:


I really want some opinions to help me decide which designs to go with!

Hello Bates,

IMO a black shirt is never stylish. Take another one, or two white shirts.

The buttons are all nice. But the question is which colour suits you.

For the dark shirt, lavendar is kind of the "in" color of 2008 - although I have to say, I'm not sure the way to make a dress shirt "stylish without being boring" is to change the color of the button holw thread. Why not leave the button hole thread the same color as the shirt, and make your shirt unique in other ways? For example, I think it's stylish to have a different color fabric on the inside of your cuffs. Or, keep the shirt simple and get an awesome tie and cufflinks?

Nonsense- for a casual shirt? I don't know what sort of styling you're talking about but the lavender looks interetsing.

For the suit- I'd probably stick with white thread/white buttons.

Sorry, this is my opinion. Except if you are brown or black a black shirt is an inane attempt (are there no other colors?). Again my opinion on that.

anything other than white on white for the white dress shirt would be rediculous unless you were (1) increadibly talented at putting an outfit together (you aren't because you posted this question) or (2) despite the fact that you plan to wear the shirt with a suit, you don't plan on wearing it in a business or other formal setting.

for the "casual" shirt, i would, personally stay away from black, but if you were set on it, then i think the purple is most attractive.

You may not realize that you just clinched the argument against yourself.

Actors at the Oscars are not known for being well dressed.

Cheers, Jim.
