I have one great dress shirt: an oxford cloth blue button-down Van Heusen which I'm pretty sure is a leftover from my 8th grade uniform (yes, I'm an 'adult' now).
It's awesome because of a few factors:
- No guy playing polo, crocodile, or whatever on it. No external signs of branding
- It is apparently built to last.
- It's matte and textured. It doesn't shine, at all.
Googling informs me that the reason why this shirt rocks and the shirts I've been trying to get to supplement it with shine and have no nice texture is because they're 'pinpoint or royal' oxfords, with a much finer thread. That's cool and all, but I'm not into shiny shirts and don't need something that's 'business appropriate' (programmer, dress-down person).
Also: fitted is a plus, maybe a must. I'm tall and lanky (6', 150ish).
Even the current Van Heusen bunch of shirts seem to be entirely pinpoint and whatnot.
Is there anywhere I can go to get oxford shirts, without branding or shine, and with the built-to-last / coolness of this one?
