between casual and dress, ~50
Same here. I do make sure to get different features, such as different cuffs or collar. Do you?
about 30. better have them tailored for a perfect fit. go for quality than quantity as they say.
If we are talking button downs, I have around 50. The regular rotation is closer to 25 or so. I probably need to clear out the shirts I don't use often and replace them. I probably have close to the same number in casual shirts (polos, etc).
I've got every possible colour in plain, plaid and stripe so must be around 80.
Not sure if this poll is meant only for sized dress shirts or also includes sports shirts. I think I've got about 90 total at the moment, roughly divided between the two types. I think I have a slight preponderance of dress shirts these days. Nearly all my shirt buying in recent years has been limited to them since the BDs can be worn equally well casually.
I have about 30, but it's really 10-20 that I wear with any regularity. Of those, there are five or six go-to shirts and then a few others for less important business.
Over 40. Here's the breakdown off the top of my head.:
5 blue OCBD
2 pink OCBD
1 purple OCBD
2 white OCBD
2 white spread collar fc
2 white pinpoint
2 blue spread collar
1 green gingham
1 blue gingham
1 purple gingham
1 yellow plaid
1 burgundy plaid
2 blue houndstooth
3 blue check
1 purple check
2 blue bengal
2 purple bengal
2 green stripe
1 blue striped oxford
1 pink bengal
1 red bengal
1 blue striped
1 pink/black check
1 green/blue check
1 purple/black check
1 blue/brown check
1 blue/tan check
I got rid of 10 or so recently, but I'm sure I still have a few in the rotation not listed.
I have ~60 after thinning out 20-30 lower quality shirts that I hadn't considered wearing over the past couple of years
On occasion I'll order a different cuff ... but rarely change when it comes to the collar ... which is almost always a spread.
More often than not I'll order exactly the same shirt.
I have like 20, as I go I won't replace any and have say 10 identical ones and that's it. I sometimes go for weeks without wearing one though. If I wore shirts everyday I'd stay at 15.
Wow. Didn't know men could have more than 10 shirts! To those who have 25+, are some of them like more than 3 years old? I have about ten and regularly wear five.
<40 is small-timer. I'm sorry.
I've heard there's a support group, though. Perhaps you should Google it.
I confess that I'm not really sure what a dress shirt is, or a sports shirt: I don't think I've ever heard the terms outside SF. Pretty much all my shirts are made identically now - semi-spread collar, two button rounded cuffs - and within the collection there is a spectrum of smartness based on cloth type/colour/pattern, but I would have a hard job dividing them into two distinct types - dress and sports. I suppose there are some that I would probably only wear with a sports coat or more casual suit - are they "sports shirts" then, and the rest "dress"?
I wear a shirt almost every day of my life, have done since I was six or seven. There are maybe ten or twenty days a year that I wear a polo or t-shirt instead. If you want a decent choice each morning and don't want to be doing your laundry all the time, I think it's nice to have about two dozen in total, if not more.
Small timer - 35. Weeded out the bad fits over the past year - big improvement - what was I thinking
