What Makes A Good White Shirt? - Part 1

If there is one piece of clothing a guy should never go without, it has to be a white shirt. To us guys, it’s what the Little Black Dress is to women. It’s both timeless and versatile and a good white shirt is well worth the investment. I’ve had a couple of white shirts in the past that haven’t really lasted too long and I’m on the look-out for a new one. I found myself asking, “What makes a good white shirt?.” With that in mind, here are some of the shirts I’m loving and some useful tips I came across.
