    Help finding a collar bar shirt

    Hi again guys,

    So I'm wearing a navy suit to an event in a months time and would like to accessorise with a collar bar. As I'm a newbie to the collar bar game, I quite like the idea of a shirt that already has one fitted, so some help finding something suitable would be great.

    I'm thinking either:

    - a plain white dress shirt with a vintage 1920s style collar bar, paired with a burgundy knitted tie and a burgundy polka dot pocket square

    - a pale pink dress shirt (maybe with a white contrast collar) with a collar bar with a pale pink pocket square. Not certain on tie-choice for this look, but thinking maybe a navy knitted tie

    So, any help finding those shirts would be great, as would your thoughts on my two looks and any other suggestions are welcome?

    Cheers

    Reiss do some. I recently bought the buster shirt (white) in their sales. It's a lovely shirt and the quality is brilliant, although it's sold out everywhere now.

    Although having said that, John Lewis have it in a medium which I imagine is your fit judging from posts on this forum:
    Buy Reiss Buster Plain Shirt, White online at JohnLewis.com - John Lewis

    Zara are currently selling a collar bar shirt, but I'm not a fan of dobby shirts myself.
    I think asos were also selling one, but since then they've sold out.

    I'm a small at Reiss actually! It's a shame, because they have some shirts which would be perfect

    They've been selling Reiss stock for quite a while now, probably in the same way they sell brands like Levis and Barbour.

    @Chris. Some Reiss stores may still have the buster shirt. I saw it in the Covent Garden Reiss shop, but it was an XL.

    I guess it depends how much Nathan wants to pay.

    Sorry I should have said, I'd rather pay under 60 if possible.

    I posted a similar thread on here before Christmas.

    I ended up getting mine from Next for 22! Its very nice and came with a gold collar bar. My preference was silver but gold looks fine.

    Zara also do one for 30 but I actually thought the Next one was nicer.

    Remus Uomo do some nice ones for around 40.

    What is the Next one like? I was thinking of buying it, but was suspect of the quality.
