How to wear dress shirt ?

A shirt must be ironed free of wrinkles.
For more smoothness and stiffness you can treat you shirt with starch.
For formal occasion, tuck the hem inside the waistband of your trousers.
If you wear a necktie, you must button the dress shirt to the top. While the shirt is buttoned, you should be able to slide two fingers between your neck and collar.
For informal usage, you can leave the top button unfastened.
When you bend your arm, sleeves should be long enough so that cuffs do not ride up your wrist when you move your arm.
Don’t be afraid to roll your sleeves up when necessary.
In general, a shirt will last two years. Chili parties, leaky pens, sip-tops, the world is full of ways to ruin good fabrics!
