    i just got in some borrelli stuff and there are a few shirts that really look like dress shirts, but there are no collar stays.  does that, by default, make them sport shirts?  any guidance?

    If the collars are stiff enough to not bend without stays, then they're dress shirts. If not, maybe they are a mistake?

    No collar stays and softer interlining would make them sport shirts to most people.

    it's the shape of the collar, not the stiffness, that determines whether or not it is a dress shirt. button the neck and put on a tie. then you'll know.

    then again, if it has a pocket, i don't consider it a dress shirt, but maybe that's just me.
