background i almost never wear a tie and i am considered of the more fashionable men in my office. i also love color. so i shouldn't bother with any contrast collar shirts? what about collar type and french cuff vs standard. i do have a good bit of slim fitting white shirts
no offense taken, i work for a teeny tiny lil known government agencyWhat industry do you work in? Not to offend, but some people do not dress appropriately for their industry and could stand to make some adjustments.
Like what you just described wouldn't seem appropriate if you worked in corporate finance, as an example.
French cuff are more formal so I'd get a standard, mitered cuff and single barrel or double barrel would both be fine.
thanks, what about collar should i do a spread, standard...etcFrench cuff shirts generally take a jacket and tie. If you're not wearing a suit or tie with these shirts, you probably should get some barrel cuff shirts vs. french cuff. Seeing as you already have a decent number of white shirts, I'd think about getting only one white french cuff shirt for special occasions when you'll be in a suit and tie. You have other white shirts so have no need to get more. Light blue is always a good idea, and maybe add another pink or lilac shirt depending on what looks best on you.
Contrast collar shirts pretty much require a tie IMO and don't tend to look as good as most wearers think they do. I'd avoid them.
