Alfani Red Tonal Texture Stripe Fitted Oxford – SALE $26.99 (Reg. $45.00)
It won the Dappered.com search for the perfect dress shirt, and after more than a few months of “field testing” it’s still #1. There’s little doubt that this is the best, most affordable, and widely available white dress shirt in existence.
Macy’s really hit on something with their Alfani RED label. It’s updated clothing that’s not hyper-trendy. Along with the Alfani RED Suits, these Alfani RED Easy Care dress oxfords are the flagship of the brand.
This shirt is perfect for guys who are in decent shape and don’t want to pay to have a dress shirt taken in. They’re not just athletic fit, they’re trim. Some so-called athletic cut dress shirts still leave love-handle-ish amounts of cloth at the sides. These do not.
The collar is a dead on semi-spread and the tonal stripes add amazing depth while still blending in from a distance. If you’re a bit of a minimalist when it comes to your suits and ties, the subtle stripes give your look a real high style texture.
Some have complained through online reviews that the “Easy Care” label might be misleading. If you wash it, dry it, and expect to pull it out and put it on… you’ll be disappointed. But with a hot iron and a little starch, these shirts smooth out pretty easily. They hold a crispness but still move incredibly well. It must be the tonal stripes that add just enough extra weight without making it feel heavy.
They go on sale a lot. But if you need a bright white oxford and you’re short on time, they’re still a deal at $45.00
