The white shirt is a wardrobe essential. A staple, versatile piece worn in casual and special occasions.
Here at Alder & Green we believe the white shirt is a garment worth investing in, to create a capsule wardrobe of classic pieces. Replacing a formal shirt is not the most financially or sustainably viable option, so investing in a good quality shirt ensures it will be a long-lasting return on investment. The perfect fit and fabric help elevate the garment from a simple white shirt, to your reliable go-to piece you know will flatter you each and every time. Here are the considerations you should make when investing in your new white, crisp cotton shirt.
1. The Colour: It works with everything. It’s a tone so easily complimented by any colour it is paired with. Its effortless and offers an easy way to combine different patterns, textures and shades – providing a clean base for slightly more eccentric pieces.
2. Fit to Flatter: When deciding on your new white shirt, investing some time and consideration towards the fit can go a long way. From a slimmer fit to an extra slim fit, it can compliment your body in a way that is able to elevate sophistication in your look. The elitist practice of owning a white shirt may no longer exist, but the upscale aesthetic of it still does. The fit truly allows you to look meticulously refined.
4. Cuff Style: Depending on whether it is a formal occasion or a casual setting, choosing the right cuff makes a difference. French cuffs or double cuffs are best suited to formal events and important business meetings. Single cuffs are ideal for more relaxed, casual settings. When choosing to go for a double cuff, it allows you to execute a refined touch and add a touch of personal style with a pair of sharp cufflinks.
The white shirt is an essential part of the wardrobe, a timeless classic. True luxury is slow and found in owning a few quality, key pieces that you can return to.
