How many buttons on a shirt?Watch
For example, how many buttons are you meant to button on a polo shirt?
On a flannel shirt is it best to button all the way except leaving one or two buttons loose?
And when is it okay to wear a flannel shirt completely unbuttoned? (With a t-shirt underneath)
Also, a plain white shirt.. how many buttons are you meant to do up on them?
I always button all the way except the top (if not wearing a tie) on smart office shirts and oxfords, but I personally find this look a bit boring on flannels and casual shirts.
In winter especially, I like buttoning all the way up including the top on a flannel shirt, it's a bit out there, but completely acceptable and imo a more interesting look than just the top undone or completely open with a t-shirt under. The other two looks are safer though.
In summer I like the standard two buttons undone on a linen or light cotton shirt. I don't tend to wear flannels in summer.
On a polo shirt I pretty much religiously button up fully, it's a bit of a mod look.
