    The perfect shirt



    I thought this might be a fun exercise:


    If you could only wear one shirt for the rest of your life, what would it be?

    You can mix any shirt attributes, the only condition is that it is a long sleeve button-down.


    Some of the things to consider:

    Fabric - Cotton, linen, oxford, poplin, end-on-end, herringbone, (seersucker)?

    Collar - Spread, point, or club perhaps?

    Placket - French or covered maybe?

    Button or cufflink cuffs?

    How would it fit?

    What color?

    Would it have a curved or straight bottom hem?


    I have my ideas, but I would like to know what others think first.

    cotton, royal oxford, light sky blue, point collar, mitered barrel cuffs, trim fit, not too long on the bottom so it can go tucked in or untucked, contoured bottom hem.


    I could wear it dressed up, dressed down, to nearly everything except white tie or working out

      Thought the same as Ben before reading his post, except I'd make the blue shirt out of a thinner, finer, no-iron fabric.

        I would go with:


        - Light blue, sea-island cotton oxford cloth

        - Semi spread collar (although i debate a button down or just using workin' stiffs)

        - Double button, mitered barrel cuffs

        - Center box pleat on the back

        - Trim fit (high armholes, slim sleeves, tapered sides)

        - Rounded bottoms, length short enough to leave un-tucked/long enough to tuck when needed


        Basically the same as Ben said, but with a few tweaks.
