    Just done a post regarding Lewin and H&H but have another shirt question.....

    I want to buy a new plain white shirt.

    It is to be used as my "sharpest" white shirt to wear with a suit for the "important" client meetings.
    It is also to be used as a shirt under a v-neck with jeans/chino/moleskins etc. the typical smart casual!
    also for occasions such as weddings or dare I say funerals etc.

    I prefer just plain cotton,not herringbone or twill etc.

    If I was spend maybe £60 ($90 ish) where would people suggest I get one from (or is it worth spending a few more pennies??)

    Also like advice on the collar. I'm a 16 and roundish face so what's best for the multipurpose I'm after? Sharp standard spread? Semi or full cutaway?

    Advice is appreciated!!

    Generally straight point collars are the best choice for roundish faces as they counterbalance facial rotundity. There are lots of straight collar options: the regular straight collar is the one we (Italians) call "the Italian collar", it has straight points and it better extends and narrows a rounded face.
    Are you going MTM?

    Hi, sorry for coming back to this so late! £60 could not be enough but if you can afford £70/80 you can get a quality mtm shirt here http://www.neronote.com/nn/designyourshirt.3sp?s=39=a
    There are a lot of fabrics you can choose from to design your mtm shirt at that price [​IMG]
