    Just wondering where I might find a shirt that's not like a silk/dressy shirt, but also not denim and also not too expensive? Too expensive is probably £30+

    I'm looking for a particular type of shirt I guess, kind of thickish material with a rough texture, but still like a work shirt. Very dark grey or black.

    EDIT: Feel free to neg, however your time would be better spent negging my post further down the page where I demonstrate this look:

    I've no idea about the title of this thread, but post a pic when you're set - it'll be funny or... cool?

    Anyway, I got a black fitted shirt for work a couple of weeks ago - Next, £20.

    Yeah I was looking at Next, they throw in the clip-on tie as well for £20 don't they?

    I'm looking for a "work shirt" with a rough texture though.

    I just remembered - a friend of mine bought a really nice black fitted shirt - a couple of years ago, mind - from either Primark or TJ Hughs :P

    You probably want a light shirt if you're wearing a black tie. The rules of fashion told me so.

    Dark grey shirt, black tie, sleeves rolled up, that was the plan.

    Yeah good luck. It seems to me from observing this forum that the rules of fashion regularly don't apply here.

    Ahhh it seems the term I'm looking for is 'woven'. Perhaps.

    Herringbone weave?

    Maybe look for an Oxford weave. That sounds like the kind of material you're after, they're a bit heavier and woven more obviously than most shirts, although Oxford shirts tend to have button-down collars which look fairly (very) bad with a tie.

    This shows a close-up of an Oxford weave but is the wrong colour, fit and isn't a great shirt anyway.

    Yeah, one of those might work.

    Anyways, just for all your amusement, I've put on a thick black tie back to front, tucked the fat end into one of my black shirts which never fitted (Burtons) and tucked the shirt in at the back to make it look skinny and taken a bathroom selfie, just for that added mockery, cause y'know, being bullied for four years at secondary school is nothing compared to the onslaught here at TSR.

    right... well on TSR we aren't bullying you. I'm sorry you experienced bullying.

    ok, criticisms.

    Why are you wearing this combination? Work, going out, party, birthday, daily wear?
    iron shirt, tuck in shirt, otherwise its fine

    lol, I was only being daft. I have no fashion sense at all.

    I can't tell if you're genuinely upset or not; judging by the fact that you posted a pic, I'm guessing you'll live

    Edit: How come you only got 4 years? Lucky *******...

    I don't have a 'dress code', I'll wear this to any of those occasions.

    Other than the fact the shirt is unironed (I just got it out the cupboard, I've probably had it since I was 16 or 17 and not worn it for many years), I think it's a good combination that doesn't deserve derision, I just need to find a better (SLIGHTLY lighter?) shirt and a real skinny tie.

    Nope, I'm not upset. I appreciated your Next suggestion, I'm gonna go on Saturday and check them out.

    I was also being very sarcastic, school was a long time ago (9 years :ahee: ) and nothing anyone can say on TSR can come close to hurting me, so everyone might as well pipe down with their pointless digs 'cause they're putting unnecessary wear on their finger joints.
