Why? Today’s dress shirt comes in a myriad of cuts and several different shirt collar types, as well as buttoning styles too. This is why, like when shopping for the perfect pair of jeans, when you find your dress shirt fit, stock up on multiples of the wonderful things.

Best Men’s Dress Shirts FAQs

What is a dress shirt?

A dress shirt is a shirt that you wear to formal events such as weddings and parties, or to the office. The most common colour for dress shirts is white, compared to business shirts, which can be found in other colours and they will usually be made of more premium materials.

How should I wear a dress shirt?

Dress shirts should be ironed, worn with the sleeves down and buttoned, tucked into your pants and with all front buttons done up, except for the top if you're not wearing a tie. You can also add collar stiffeners to make sure the collar stays rigid throughout the day.
