Work It: The Men's White Button-Front Guide


Ahh, the white dress shirt. Crisp. Clean. Classic. It’s the must-have office staple for every 9-to-5er. To make sure you’re buttoning up the right way Monday through Friday, check out these tips:

To button or not to button?
Leave only the collar button and the one below open. Three buttons and you run the risk of showing too much skin.

As Frankie would say, “Relax.”
For a more casual feel that still looks sharp, leave your cuffs undone. During the summer, roll those bad boys up.

Never let it all hang out.
No ifs, ands, or buts about it – you should always tuck in a traditional white dress shirt. It just looks sharper – period.

Keep it clean.
Brush a little Shout over sweat-prone areas (inside the collar, under the arms… you get the picture) before tossing it in the laundry.  No one – and we mean no one – wants to see yellow pit stains.

Our Robert Graham Boutique opens Friday, May 23, at 11AM ET.
