9 Tips for Finding the Perfect White Shirt

Why you can never have enough. Plus, how to choose the one that's right for you

2. How to Choose

Whether you buy off the rack or have your favorite version custom made by London's famed Jermyn Street shirtmakers, to get the best out of the most important item in your closet, choose carefully. Nuances of cuff (barrel or French), collar (semi-spread or point), and fabric (Panama or broadcloth) speak volumes.

Chris Cox, creative director of Nautica and a white-shirt connoisseur, has an extensive collection he selects from according to his mood. "Right now my favorite is in a micro-textured cotton with a spread collar and barrel cuff," he says. "I have more than 20." Itís a start.
