Non-see-through white shirts

So is it really that hard to find well-priced white shirts that don't fit like tents and can't be seen through? I'm not a big under shirt-wearer, so the former is pretty important, but it seems every time I go to look for a well-fitting white shirt I have this problem. Any suggestions? I'm looking for something that fits like RLBL, BB extra slim or Duncan Quinn, is solid white (perhaps has a little texture to it), can't be seen through and retails for $150 or less.

I'll definitely have to pick one up as a more casual shirt, thanks! However, for more formal settings, I prefer a straight collar, not BD.

As an aside, I just noticed they started doing the luxury shirts in extra slim. Nice looking patterns for something a little bolder, might have to try as an alternative to RLBL's less sedate dress shirts.

Buy Oxford cloth shirts (they aren't all Button down collars) and have them fitted. I have some from Ralph Lauren that have a nice spread collar.

I've also been looking for some non-see-through slim fit white shirts. I'm not really a fan of oxford cloth tho... Are there any other options?

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
