The dress shirt

The dress shirt is a button-up shirt with a collar and long sleeves. It is differently from a sport shirt, which is made to be worn open-necked and doesn’t look good with a tie. The dress shirt is designed to be worn with a jacket and tie, but can also be worn without one or the other, or without both of them. Various shirts with different sorts of collars and cuffs are appropriate for different ranges of attire, and many can run the gamut of formality. 
It is very important for a shirt to fit you without restricting movement. An ill fitting shirt will make you look messy. 
When choosing the collar type, you must consider whether you'll wear it with or without a tie. Mostly, men wear white or blue shirts, but you can choose from many colors, patterns and fabric types. 
The dress shirt’s style is very important. The style is defined by the collar, cuffs, the yoke, the buttons, pockets, etc. For exapmle a shirt with button down collar, left breast pocket, and single-button cuffs is a shirt, you should wear for leisure. In contrast a shirt with turned-down point collar, no breast pocket, and french cuffs signals formality.
