    This or I could even go all light blue.

    You guys go for a regular light blue or some kind of of mini stripe?

    This thread sparks an interesting question from me. Why would anyone buy or purchase a solid black shirt outside of the restaurant industry or corporate religion... er... organization?

    To look cool? To look like a wannabe movie star?

    Why would anyone wear a replica anything outside of a costume party?

    I have no idea what I would do with three of those shirts but I certainly couldn't wear them to work.

    I love a great fitting solid white shirt. I could wear one almost everyday and do.

    Seeing as that I only own 4 dress shirts. I think I have a good selection.

    -White french cuff
    -White barrel cuff
    -Light Blue barrel cuff
    -White/light blue stripe barrel cuff

    I would like to add more patterns and colors, but I just dont have the need. I maybe wear one once a month.

    The first 5 shirts should be white. A few solid blues. Then blue/white stripes, white/grey stripes, and endless checks.

    That's what I was thinking. I have a grand total of one black shirt and it gets worn maybe once a year, if that.
