The Difference Between A ‘Work Shirt’ And A ‘Going-Out Shirt’?
Do you see a distinct difference in the shirts you wear to work and those you don’t? Do you wear shirts to work with a tie and a suit that you can then wear out at the weekend open-collared with jeans and a jacket?
I’m looking to buy a couple of new shirts and I’d like them to be able to be worn in both situations.
I currently have two categories – ‘work’ and ‘non-work’. They hang in different wardrobes but I’m not entirely sure what the difference is between them. Recently my girlfriend asked me to wear a specific shirt out for dinner with her parents and I said ‘I can’t wear that one, it’s a work shirt’. But I can’t put my finger on why I keep them apart.
I have my shirts tailor-made and can choose all details. What details would work in both a work and non-work environment? I’m thinking very fitted, slim placket, no pockets, single button cuff, full cut away collar.
