Recommendations for the best versatile white button down

post #1 of 51
Thread Starter 
I'm having a tough time finding a good white all purpose slim fitted button down.
As of right now, my white shirts either arent fitted nicely or have really large cuffs/collars.
I want something longsleeve without a front pocket that could work with a narrow or regular tie. Also I'd like something made of a nice material.
I liked the look of some of the Dior white shirts I found here and there, but they always had these strange details here and there that wrecked them for me.
I want something simple but elegant.

Suggestions?thanks everyone!

he wants something that works with a tie. if you are wearing a tie with a BoO oxford you deserve to have your ass kicked for looking like a hipster douchebag...

I think 3demon is talking about shirts for work, in which case it's much easier to find one that fits well and you can tuck it in.

you are entitled to your opinion, but you are wrong. first of all, a shirt with a button down collar should never, ever be worn with a tie. ties only go with spread collar shirts. ties also don't go with untucked shirts and BoO should not be tucked in and is designed to make that virtually impossible anyway.

I agree about the tuck..but I don't think it's "wrong" to wear a tie with an untucked shirt. I think it looks okay sometimes. And it looks fine with a button-down collar IMO.

I definitely don't think that ties should be worn with untucked BoO shirts, but where on earth do you get the idea that ties should "never, ever" be worn with shirts featuring a button down collar? Yeah, it's definitely not appropriate at Leona Helmsley's funeral on the Upper East Side, but a button down collar and tie combination is hardly out of place with khakis and possibly a sport coat in any part of the country not dominated by the most pretentious "fashion circles."

this is my point. just because its accepted by the unfashionable masses doesn't mean its something you would want to do.

Not everything is about "fashion;" the tie with button down collar combination is a time-tested and classic look amongst many people who command more respect than some artsy, excessively-metropolitan types. Five guys in Chelsea wearing denim-leggings denouncing something as "unfashionable" doesn't really do much to undermine a classic American look.

the tie with button down collar is actually one of the oldest rules of male professional dress. it has nothing to do with fashionistas in denim leggings. the only people who accept it are frat boys and clueless office drones in khakis. its a very big no-no traditionally.

its probably accepted in the south too actually, since its sort of a preppy anti-establishment statement.

When you disregard "frat boys," "clueless office drones," southerners and preppy portions of New England, who wears ties on a regular basis? Oh yes, that's right, people in big cities working at law firms or attending funerals/social events, and we've already established that the tie with button down collar look is not "dressy," meaning it wouldn't be wearable in any of those situations.

The tie with button down collar isn't something which should "never, ever" be done; it's a look reserved for more casual situations which still call for a tie. It's not a "dressy" look, nor have I or anyone else ever claimed it to be.

i suppose then that i agree with you for the most part. its just that i find the idea of a "casual situation that still calls for a tie" a bit oxymoronic. if i'm wearing a tie i am not doing it casually, i realize that there are people who do that but i don't think i have ever seen it look good.
