What you should look for in a dress shirt

Specialist retailers such as EJ Menswear offer a wide range of Oxford men’s dress shirts.

The term dress shirt is, perhaps, overly restrictive. Whilst the Cambridge Dictionary describes them as “a formal shirt, usually for men, intended to be worn with a jacket and tie or bow tie”, the reality is that they are far more flexible than this definition would suggest.

They work well on the majority of body types and are routinely seen in both casual and formal settings. Some wearers choose to pair them with washed jeans, cords or chinos and simply leave them untucked. Others in professional or formal environments may tuck them in, button down the collar and wear them with a suit and – optionally – a tie. The fabric’s resistance to wrinkling adds further appeal in the context of formal or hot settings.

There really is no end to the versatility of these shirts, even in the midst of global changes to working patterns and lifestyles. In fact, their very versatility adds to their appeal in an ever-changing world.
