DRESS SHIRTS: A TALE OF TWO FABRICS
Fit and collar are important, but when it comes to dress shirts, the fabric is what makes for a truly great garment. Which is why we’ve put so much time into getting the very best cloth around for our dress shirts. Essentially, you have two choices: Wrinkle-Free or Italian cotton. And both are spectacular. Here’s the skinny to help you choose the best shirt for your needs: [[MORE]]  The Wrinkle-Free Daily Grind Forget what you’ve heard about wrinkle-free shirts before, this fabric is different. With a soft, luxurious hand-feel, it’s nothing like those stiff non-iron shirts from the old days. In fact, the only way you’ll be able to tell its wrinkle-free is from the fact that you won’t have to iron it. Designed for the office, you can put these beauties on right off the hanger and be ready for business before the coffee’s done percolating.  The Italian Cotton Americano When it comes to fabric, this is as good as it gets. We’ve sourced cloth from some of Italy’s finest mills to create a premium dress shirt worthy of the title. Just feel it between your fingers, and the difference is obvious: this is Old World craftsmanship. The Americano dress shirts are designed for connoisseurs, but you don’t have to be a sartorial expert to appreciate the luxury.     Hopefully, this helps get you one step closer to finding your Dress Code. It’s simple: Fabric + Collar + Fit. Just click here to learn more, and if you’d like to try a shirt on in person, you’re always welcome to swing by the Guideshop.

ON WHITE SHIRTS
Guest written by Sean Hotchkiss
A rather nomadic photographer friend of mine once told me he’d always carry a clean, white, dress shirt in his backpack because he never knew who might invite him to dinner. Lovely advice, but not why I prefer white shirts. Jon Hamm as Don Draper taught us that a crisp white dress shirt could hide nearly every sin imaginable. A benefit, surely, but again not my reasoning.
I favor white dress shirts because they’re the very essence of what a shirt should be: a pristine canvas waiting to be interpreted by a colorful tie or a tweedy sports jacket. You see, a white shirt takes the guesswork out of clothing oneself each day — an attribute to strive for as one gets older and schedules become more complex. As a young intern I’d often get dressed in the dark, as not to wake my roommate, and a white shirt was the only base that ensured my suit would always work. White shirts are as simple as can be. They remove human error. I take mine in the Milanese fashion, with a high spread collar and trim proportions, and I buy them in pairs so I’m never without one. They jive with every single other piece of clothing I own. Nestled under a denim jacket, a white shirt is a sliver of refinement in an otherwise rugged look; paired with a black bowtie a white spread collar dress shirt is formal ready (without the need for studs). Did you know the very first “modern” Edwardian dress shirts were white? Now you do.
Whenever I wear a white dress shirt, someone stops me to say: “you look tan, were you just on vacation?” or “Are you doing SoulCycle?” No. I’ve figured out what works for me — plain vanilla. (And proud.) ON WHITE SHIRTS

WHAT’S IN A COLLAR? MORE THAN YOU MIGHT THINK.
We’ve discussed the three distinct fits we offer in dress shirts, but now it’s time to talk turkey. And by “turkey,” we mean “collars.” Yes, that strip of under-appreciated fabric that rests right below our chins. Because even though we might not give it much thought, it does actually say something about us. Here are the three collar options available at Bonobos, and a little bit of background on each. [[MORE]]  Point Collar: This is as classic as it gets. It works in every scenario, it’s accepted just about everywhere in the world, and everyone is going to be cool with it. If you want to play it safe and look like a true professional, this is the way to go. Think office attire or dinner with the in-laws.  Semi-Spread Collar: Ok, this one is a little bit edgier. A tad more fashion-forward, perhaps, with it’s wider spacing between the collar points. But it’s still a safe bet, and a nice balance between conservative style and modern panache. Think dinner date or downtown gallery show.  Spread Collar: With its continental origins and connotations of haute couture, this collar option is for those with some savoir faire. It can accommodate wider tie knots (if that’s your thing), and has the confident attitude to match. Think Fashion Week party or international espionage.    If you’d like to check out our collar selection for yourself, feel free to click here and pay the Bonobos dress shirt page a visit. And if you’re interested in trying one on, you’re always welcome to swing by a Guideshop.

DRESS SHIRTS: IT STARTS WITH THE FIT
When it comes to dress shirts, the most important element is fit. Hands down. And to get ours just right, we spent months fitting hundreds of shirts on dozens of guys to create the perfect set of options: Standard, Slim, and Tailored Slim. If you’re not sure which fit is best for you, here’s a little cheat sheet to help get you started. [[MORE]]Standard Fit: For guys of average build who like a shirt that’s flattering, but not too snug. It’s a little trimmer than most off-the-rack shirts because we got rid of that unnecessary fabric around the middle.Slim Fit: For men with a more slender build, or who simply prefer a snugger fit. The waist has a distinct taper, and the sleeves are a little narrower as well.Tailored Slim: The most form-fitting option we offer, this is as close to a custom tailored shirt as you can get. The rear darts really bring in the sides for a crisp, definitive taper.  Fit may be the most crucial factor in finding the perfect dress shirt, but it’s just one piece of your dress code. To determine yours, click here. DRESS SHIRTS: IT STARTS WITH THE FIT
