THE BUTTON-UP

The easiest way to say “i care about how i look, effort was made” and be guaranteed a clean look is with a white button up shirt.

A timeless item, very much cross seasonal and can be paired with just about everything in your wardrobe, be it a recent purchased item or something from your archives, a white dress shirt can be used to look the part for various outings across the board, with a pair of chinos and sneakers for a 10AM meet at a food spot or with dress pants and loafers heading out for the evening date, don't forget to make reservations as this will give a good first impression.

The key trick too pulling off wearing a white dress shirt, is once again found in the size and knowing the right cut for your individual torso type. Paying attention to the cut being perfect for the look your are creating is imperative. For example, if the intended look is one where you will not, be tucking in your shirt. The shape and length of the tail should be the correct length and not too long. There are really no rules to fashion, yet it is always good to know which of the so called "rules" one is breaking, like to call it "informed intention".

Upon typing away at this bit it came to mind, what is the difference between a “button-up” and “button-down” ? The answer being, that the corner edges of a down-down collar, have been provided additional buttons that have been inserted to do exactly that, keep the collar “buttoned down”, where as a button-up has no buttons for this task.
