For those of us a little heavy on the coffee and sauce spills, we recommend going for more than just one white shirt and differentiating with different fabric weaves and design options.
Shop our ‘Staple Pack’ including three select white custom, tailored shirts for $210, including one soft-cotton herringbone, one soft-cotton twill and one low-maintenance, everyday wrinkle free—all three staple pack shirts are customisable and made to your exact measurements and design.
The reason the iconic white shirt is so prevalent is clearly its versatility—it can act as the neutral base for vibrant colours and patterns in suits, jackets and ties, and it can be the ultimate occasional all-rounder for the entire spectrum of formality, workable with a dinner jacket for black-tie events, unbuttoned with chinos and a sports blazer for dinner with the in-laws, or untucked, unbuttoned and sleeves-up for a stylish Sunday brunch or an Amalfi riff on Saturday arvo drinks.
The simplicity of the white shirt also offers the greatest opportunity to showcase your eye for sartorial detail. The ability to customise every detail means that you can play to your needs and preferences—from uber-formal winged collars and french cuffs, to hassle-free button-down collars and cuffs and boardroom-ready spread collars designed to showcase that perfectly dimpled four-in-hand.
If you’re looking for the ultimate in low-care, our wrinkle-free shirts will keep you in good stead. Our wrinkle free fabrics have been carefully dipped in an innovative easy-iron treatment that ensures a more wrinkle free, low maintenance shirt with a softer feel. All of our shirt fabrics are also pre-washed ensuring no shrinkage. Our 3 for $210 white shirt staple pack includes one wrinkle free white twill custom, tailored shirt.
The weave is simply the way in which the threads of cotton (called warp and weft) are put together to make a fabric. The weave not only affects the way a shirt looks and feels, but also how warm the fabric will be, the way it drapes, how easy it is to iron, and sometimes, where and when it should be worn.
As an example, Twill fabrics like Herringbone are slightly thicker and as such, less transparent and easier to iron, while Chambray and Oxford fabrics are thicker weaves that both result in more casual looks. Broadcloth and Poplin fabrics are slightly thinner with a smooth, flat texture making them the perfect work or dress shirts particularly over the warmer months. Our 3 for $210 white shirt staple pack includes one wrinkle free white twill, one herringbone and one regular twill custom, tailored shirt.
Before the days you could drop off a week’s worth of dirty shirts for a clean and steam for $12, the challenge of keeping a white shirt stain and wrinkle free was a little more arduous. In fact, the terminology of ‘blue collar’ workers and ‘white collar’ workers was coined from that very issue; those in more lucrative corporate jobs could afford the luxury of having their white shirts cleaned and pressed each day, while those in manual labour opted for (at least, symbolically) the more robust and dirt-proof shades of blue. Politics aside, the white shirt also has a storied history across the silver screen.
