Found: The Best White Shirt You've Ever Worn
A white button-down shirt might be the most underrated wardrobe staple of all time. The classic silhouette transcends gender dressing norms, personal style and even seasons, to become a kind of all-conquering one style fits (and suits) all. It's truly the mythical unicorn of the fashion game. Name another piece that can do all that — aside from your favourite vintage jeans? Given its superiority, it would be fair to assume that the perfect white shirt is easy to find. Think again.
The market is flooded with perfect white shirt pretenders, but what we're after is the real deal. There are elements — crispness, length, shape, arm length, fabric, the collar (we could go on but we won't) — that set one white shirt apart from the next. And finding the holy grail which embodies all characteristics ain't easy. That's where we come in.
Below are three brands that make the ultimate white shirt and while some alter their cut from season to season, I've never been disappointed.
