UNDERSHIRTS

Undershirts, like the name implies, are worn under the shirt. They protect your shirts by acting as a barrier between your skin and your shirt to absorb sweat and moisture.

You may want to ditch it during summer, but you should consider them in winter. When shopping for an undershirt, consider v-necks so that it's hidden when wearing a shirt. If you are planning on wearing a tie, then the neck shape does not matter. We recommend getting a few whites, blacks, and grey. White tends to reflect light and is visible to everyone. Spandex, premium combed cotton, Tencel, and bamboo are great undershirt fabrics to buy. Ensure your undershirt has a comfortable fit to allow you to breathe.

TEE

Good old tees! What started as an undershirt is now essential. You can never go wrong with a t-shirt in your closet. You can wear them to hang out with friends, to the gym, and even to bed. Tees are great with blazers, bomber jackets, button-down shirts, denim, chinos, and a pair of clean sneakers or loafers. When shopping for T-shirts, look for 100% thick cotton to ensure your t-shirts survives the washes. Your tees should hug you with the sleeves sitting around your mid-biceps, the length a little below the beltline.

Oxford cloth button-down (OCBD) is a versatile classic shirt made with oxford cloth fabric. It’s called a button-down because the collars can be buttoned down to give it a casual vibe. The collars don’t fly around. You will most likely find a chest pocket on it. It can pass for a smart casual, and it goes well with dark denims and padded vests. A silk necktie along with navy blazers or suits is an excellent combination for a more formal look. 

DRESS SHIRTS

Dress shirts are great because they fit most occasions and can pair nicely with suits and blazers. If you're thinking of grabbing one, consider white, blue, light shades of pink and yellow hues. To avoid regular ironing, consider wrinkle-free T-shirts.

You should also select a dress shirt based on the type of collar that suits your look. Point collars work for people with round faces, while spread collars fit those who have pointed facial structures. You can style a dress shirt by either unbuttoning the first two buttons or wearing it with a necktie.

Dress shirts can go so well with boots and suede loafers. A good dress shirt should tuck well at the waist, cuff of sleeves sitting just on the wrist, and a collar good enough to allow two fingers to slide into it when buttoned.

POLO SHIRTS
