    Well yeah, but I think of white as formal and a sweater kind of casual. I think if you are just going bareshirted colors make sense.

    Your might give off this impression that you don't care about your look so try to spruce up your outfit once in a while.

    I never wear white shirts. My body chemistry is incompatible with them. The closest that I get for a daily wear shirt is dove gray.

    If I wear a white shirt, which is at least 1-2x a week, I do not wear an undershirt with it. It is a big pet peeve of mine to see undershirts with white dress shirt.

    Well put, Holdfast.

    I was going to say - Ive focused on plain shirts lately because I prefer my ties with some stuff going on. HF just moved it up to the next level, with some extra syllables. :D

    If you wear undershirts that are heather grey, or better yet as close to your skin tone as possible they won't be seen through white dress shirts. But then again, outside of summer I don't think you should be wearing a white dress shirt without a jacket and tie so seeing a shirt through it doesn't factor into it. Also, your old undershirts that have turned that nice yellow-grey color don't show through nearly as much as a very white undershirt. Ask me how I know. :devil:

    I am picking up a bunch of white dress shirts from my tailor tomorrow. I should post to this thread.

    To be fair, I tried to branch out to checks and patterns and stripes. I still own many of those shirts, but alas they sit unused. Many of them might go to good will this week. There was never one time when I thought a patterned shirt, or mixed colored shirt looked better than a plain white. I found myself on those days in the men's room washing my hands and looking at them in the bathroom mirror with discontent. I felt like a child. I felt responsible for all that is wrong with mankind. I felt the weight of Isreal and Palestine weighing down on my world. Then I cried out to the gods!!! Damn you colors!!! Daaaaamn youuuuuuuu! Then I felt better.

    My priest wears Dior Homme black suits. Sometimes he just wears the jacket with 19cm raw black denim with them. Cool guy, he is.

    My wardrobe consists of shirts in white and blue - solid whites and blue in solid or patterns/ stripes.

    I do have a pink, purple and grey shirt, but they get little wear.

    There is a simple solution to the visible undershirt problem. Just make sure that when you wear a plain white shirt it is in a dark solid color such as navy or black.

    I am sure you have plenty of lime green and magenta shirts though.
