The classic shirt is impervious to the winds of change in fashion. Comfortable and versatile, it is a byword for cool, effortless style – see Peter Lindbergh’s iconic 1988 image of six supermodels in nothing but unbuttoned shirts, or style icons Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy and Fran Lebowitz for endless white-shirt inspiration.

This season has seen numerous updates on the button-up. Notable iterations include The Deck’s minimalist stand-collar version with contrast marcella cloth bib made in collaboration with renowned shirtmakers Turnbull & Asser and Charvet’s classic cotton-poplin style with a blue stripe.
