What Makes A Good White Shirt? - Part 2

I don’t think anyone else could have said it better than Tom. In my first post about white shirts I wanted to show you just how much you can do with a white shirt. In the follow-up I’m going to give you some pointers on what to consider when choosing a shirt as well as some handy tips on how to take care of them. 

Always ways have more than one.

Choose carefully, simple doesn’t mean boring. The style of the cuffs, collar and the fabric really make a difference.

Always consider the fit, too big and you might end up looking like the Michelin man, too small and you’ll end up looking like you’re wearing your little brother’s school uniform!

Sweaty collars and armpits are never a good look with white shirts. Stain-removers like Oxi-clean or Vanish do wonders. 

Wash white shirts at 40º and air dry until slightly damp, then iron.

Contrary to popular belief, don’t bleach white shirts. Bleach tends to eat away at the fabric over time.
