Ah, the simple pleasure of a white shirt! Like a freshly baked loaf or a well polished shoe, the white shirt invokes a sense of reassurance and pleasure, metamorphosing between a casual friend with easy elegance when dressed down, to a decisive power player when paired with a well cut suit and a silk tie. A wardrobe workhorse, the white shirt serves as a blank canvas to the rest of your outfit. It can be worn for almost any occasion and conveys a fresh, polished and cool look.
A good white shirt comes into its own in the summer months, particularly if our pallor has warmed up. It is an appropriate response to any dress code. Wear one with a navy or linen blazer to the tennis or Lord’s, take things sporty in linen or keep boardroom smart and keep cool in Sea Island cotton or our Riviera Shirts.
A white shirt has you looking fresh, even when the temperatures soar (we can hope). Roll the sleeves back for a relaxed vibe and benefit from the shorter length in our slim and tailored cuts, designed so you can wear your shirt tucked either in or out, making things as casual as you like.
Whether opting for off the peg or having something made specifically for you, Budd offers a broad range of pattern ways, textures and weights to ensure you find your perfect white shirt. By opting for Made to Measure or bespoke, you can add a twist to a classic.
Why not experiment with a cuff or collar shape, all against the confident backdrop of crisp white, after all, you can never have too many white shirts, they will work for you a thousand times over, but add a twist and you can add a nuance of change.
