essential: the fitted white dress shirt

Picture No. 10643448

i’m a bit of a francophile.  ever since going to paris in 2014, i’ve had an affinity for all things french including their style.  the other day, i was reading a blog post on how men in paris dress and the female who wrote the piece was discussing the appeal of the fitted white dress shirt.  she claimed that it could make any man look sexy.  duly noted.  she also mentioned leaving the top 2 buttons unbottoned (very european).  it got me thinking that a fitted white dress shirt is an essential piece to every man’s wardrobe.

i realize alex turner (above) is not french, but he’s from the uk and pulls off this look flawlessly.  honestly, most of us average dudes could rock this look (minus the oversized belt buckle of course).  the good news is that you can probably find a good quality fitted white dress shirt wherever you shop (j. crew, sid mashburn, ralph lauren, uniqlo, etc.).  i’m a big fan of the shirt below from french brand apc.  i guess that’s not really surprising given how i started this post.
