Big And Tall Dress Shirts: Get The Right Proportion

How many dress shirts does a man need? part 6

The answer on a question of how many dress shirts you need is that it depends. Let’s break it down. Personally, I have about 60 to 70 dress shirts, sometimes I add some, but overall, that is the number. Personally, I do not consider it to be too much for a number of reasons.

If you attend evening events regularly, you also may want to invest in different kinds and styles of evening shirts. Some could have wide pleated fronts or slim pleated fronts. You could have different kinds of Marcella inserts, you can have starched shirts, and it is just interesting and with black tie, there is not a whole lot variety in what you can do so changing up the shirt detail has a much bigger impact than it would on let’s say a business suit.

Overall, just like with anything else in your wardrobe, it really depends on your needs and what you want, however, once you know what you are going for, it pays to start out with the basics that give you the most use for your purpose which means the lowest cost per wear. In general, that means staying away from super flashy or unusual things and it means that you leave them behind even though they may be really discounted on a super sale because even if you get the shirt at 90% off, it is kind of wasted if you just wear it twice in a period of 10 years.

An idea for an outfit:

You can wear a vintage beige dress shirt with French cuffs, and for cufflinks, you can go for brown ones. Pair that with a blue suit, brown striped socks, which go very good with cufflinks and classic style dark brown penny loafers.
