T&A white oxford button down - as a "dress" shirt?

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?

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.

Well not "dress", as in black/white tie. But for a summer business outfit, with a cotton-linen suit.

Just do it, sounds good. You like T&A so nothing to lose by it.

Well, and here it is. Off now for a week in Ouchy, will report back about how it has performed as a casual shirt.
