Crisp white cotton, Oxford blue, light pink, grey polka dot, blue chambray, purple pencil stripe. Whatever your preference, the perfect men’s dress shirt should be ironed, fresh and clean and work with almost any suit (provided the shirt and the suit fits properly.

Every guy needs in his closet at least the basics – white oxford, light blue poplin, gingham in pink or pastel. This week we’ve got the blues and so we’re focusing on three of our favorite blue men’s dress shirts – versatile enough for office or afterhours, durable and functional yet also trendy and hip.
The Classic Navy Shirt fits every budget and every wardrobe. Wear it with grey, Prince of Wales check or even a brown men’s suit to the office for a solid professional look that also reads confident, outgoing and modern. We recommend the rounded, cutaway collar for an on trend, modern look. Pair it with a 100% cotton, handmade Cerise Gingham Tie for an added level of texture and interest.
From Knot Standard’s Spring/Summer 2014 Collection, the Benchmark Teal Gingham Shirt works well for the warmer days of spring. Made from 100% cotton and with our trademark royal blue buttonhole stitching on the cuffs, this button down men’s dress shirt can be worn with suits, blazers and jeans or chinos on the weekend. Its especially great for casual Fridays, trips to the countryside or those days when you want comfort and style without too much hassle.
Last but not least, the Classic Sky Blue Broadstripe hits the right note of formality without being boring. Wear it with jeans and a chocolate blazer or pullover sweater for those cool spring nights. A perfect first date look for any guy.
