I found a nordic brand Ella Hopfeldt.
I look mostly at the size of collar and the placement of the second button. Most other stuff can be adjusted at the tailor if you need. But then, with enough washing and wear, it becomes one of the softest things in your closet. But the thing I love most about them is the tall collar.
You could almost fit a rattle snake under the collar on one of these, but they still look great with jeans and rolled sleeves, too. But the amazing thing about Comme des Garçons and their shirting is that every season, the shirt is weirdly a little different. I find that that helps me wear a white shirt and still feel like an individual.
I like my collars to be kind of loose and on the small side. I also prefer my shirts a little bit roomy around the chest and shoulders, so they sort of fall a little looser on me, as opposed to being tight and restrictive — but still slim. This Kato one checks off all the boxes for me. Probably my favorite one is the royal oxford-cloth button-down from Eton. Despite the fact that my arms are relatively short, I cannot get shirt sleeves that are quite long enough to go all the way to my wrist joint, but the first time I tried this shirt on and tried on a sweater over it, I noticed that it was sticking out from underneath the ribbing of the wrist on the sweater just the right amount, like that perfect weird place between a quarter-inch and a half-inch.
It looks good open and over a T-shirt or buttoned up all the way. The Strategist is designed to surface the most useful, expert recommendations for things to buy across the vast e-commerce landscape. We update links when possible, but note that deals can expire and all prices are subject to change.

BEST FOR: This slim cut button-down is the one you'll reach for when you need to wear something under a blazer or sweater. USERS SAID: "This shirt has a wonderful cut that slims. This is . Not very many women can actually wear and look and feel good in a straight-cut men’s white button-down shirt. But it is a classic, chic look that never goes out of style and looks appropriate in almost every sartorial scenario. We love this white button-down shirt because it has the option to be dressed up or down! Try styling it with an A-line midi skirt for 9-to-5, and then switch to denim and .
