Would you wear this as a formal shirt?

    I have been looking for a good slim-fitting, more modern formal shirt. I came across this one from Pink: http://www.thomaspink.co.uk/large-im...2100370W1W.jpg but it isn't meant as a tux shirt. How do you think it works? If it's hard to see on the screen, it's french cuff, spread collar and is white with satin stripes. Only real problem, for me at least, is that the buttons show. I am planning to wear it with a long black tie as well. The tux is just a regular black Joseph Banks one button, which I've had tailored to be fairly fitted. Feedback appreciated.

    Yea, you found it. BTW, I corrected the link. Any difference, in your mind, if I had a tailor take four of the buttons off and put in holes so I could wear studs with it (and then a bowtie, perhaps)?
