Being in love with T&A, I am reviewing my formerly quite restrictive shirt policy and strategy. Stocking up on versatile (= non-plain and/or non-popelin) shirts, what is your view on regular-sized white oxford button down button cuffs ones, to be worn in summer, with a cotton suit and a pastel Hermes tie?
And, while we are at it, how do you see white herringbone twills vs. white diagonal twills?

HAHAHAHAHA good one, Beastie
Ok, Button Down was a stupid idea.
No it wasn't, with a sports coat or cotton/linen suit a BD looks quite ok I think. I like Herringbone twills, I have a really fab one in blue, with a BD collar, by Fray. Loveeeeeeleeee it is.
Well - in my head, there is the idea of a BD shirt in pinpoint, worn with a navy cotton/linen suit and a pastel Hermes tie.
I don't wear ties with a sports coat.
If your in the market for that price range I'd splash a bit more and get this...

Pinpoint and the collars really roll. I've a few of their BD's and the quality is top. Collar length is spot on IMHO. Fab buttons. Best BDs I've had, along with Fray. That T&A collar looks a bit pony.
Well T&As OTR range is now my ceiling for what I am willing to spend for a shirt.
And I am actually very happy with T&As fit, so really no need to try something new.
