I have always asked this question to myself and I have never found the answer.

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?

Completely depends on your style.

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.
