I personally like my white shirts to have a little special something...

Balenciaga did some very nice ones with ruffle details for AW 05







...and who could forget the infamous Dior Homme bloodwound shirt

This thread is great...

I'm looking for that perfect white shirt as well. I remember an article in GQ maybe a year ago about this. I think their picks were Helmut Lang (for their perfect button placement), Prada (for their perfect collar that suits almost any tie and is "pillowy"), and 2 others? I don't remember.

Anyways, I love the Dior Homme dress shirts from the pictures I've seen. The collar is sharp and small, just what I'm looking for, but the price...

Anyone have any similar alternatives? Or maybe a good source for a decent priced DH ? I need something for my slimk black suit and slim ties.

Thanks

This thread is a good opportunity for me to de-lurk.

I'm partial to shirts by agnes b. Slim fitting (but not hyperslim), very comfy, and IMO, great quality. Kenzo and Rykiel shirts are also very nice, and their fabrics feel like heaven to wear.

For more affordable brands, I should say Sisley. I chanced upon one of their shirts at a sale, and immediately snatched it up. It's quite slim, with sturdy collar and cuffs. I always get compliments when I'm wearing it.

I have one Anne Fontaine shirt, but it needed many alterations and basically they do not fit me properly .

The best was their zipped washing bag. You put your white shirt or t-shirts in and throw it in the washing machine. The bag protects the white cotton from going grey when washed with other things. I believe similar bags can be bought at other shops. It really works, I looove the pristiness of a new white shirt.

I've been in search of 'the great white shirt' for quite a while... It is just one of those essential pieces in every wardrobe, yet I haven't been able to find one...
So far these caught my interest...

Raf Simons F/W 06.07


Dries Van Noten F/W 06.07

thomas pink makes them too short and boxy.

for luxury of fit (smooth cotton, super long, narrow body), quality of style (three button cuff and strong collar), turnbull & asser.

I second this - I recently bought one of her oxford shirts for women and the cut is superb. For once I can raise my arm above shoulder-level and not have the entire shirt come up with it.

Baizilla, I think the dries one is an interesting white shirt. I like that you can tuck it in or wear it out. it also looks like a nice weight cotton.
