How many white dress shirts do you currently own that are in your current wardrobe? (current meaning something you would still wear that isn't faded, stained yellow, or damaged)
Plain white? Three. One double cuff, one two button single cuff, and one BD. I have another single cuff and another BD but they're out of the rotation (emergency only) so I won't count them.

FWIW this is out of 28 total in the dress shirt rotation.

I have white base shirts with stripes and in one case, a coloured shirt with white stripes.

For just white shirts - 3:
1. plain - buttoned cuffs
2. plain - french cuffs
3. plain white base with white silky stripes - french cuffs

I have two shirts that have white collar and cuffs - 1. dark blue with stripes 2. off white with blue stripes in groups

This from a 25 shirt collection, although 16/17 are for work (the off-white shirt with white collar and cuffs is not for work). From the 16/17 shirts, about 10 have some white in the design.

Leaving aside a formal shirt or two, I think I have only 2 white shirts left now and at least one (probably both) of those will be thrown away soon once a new one arrives.

I will be ordering a couple more after that too. Plus I want a new casual white OCBD after that. But I don't tend to wear white shirts too often so 2-3 in the wardrobe is more than enough for me.

I have about 7 out of 24 total shirts, so I tend to wear white shirts once or twice a week (this is excluding casual wear).

2 spread collar, french cuff
2 tab-collar, button cuff
2 button-down collar, button cuff
1 huh, can't remember, maybe I only have 6 :)

I've got at least 10, half of which are OCBD for work. After that, I've got a two spread collars, one RL casual, one Land's End casual with a herringbone pattern that a favorite of mine. I'm hoping to replace my all white button downs today. Most were bought when I was running marathons as a hobby, and now that I run less my shoulders and chest are broadening from weight training and the sleeves are too short. I've never been much for color in my business wear, but I may get a couple in the mix this time around...

I have 7 white shirts out of a total of 25 dress shirts, although some of the shirts (both white and otherwise) are button downs which I suppose some here don't consider to be "dress" shirts. Guess I would have to go to the trad forum for that. :icon_smile_big:

Not in my wildest dreams would I wear anything but a white shirt with a tie.
Besides, I still have enough difficulty finding a satisfactory shirt OTR, so I'm not going to complicate this (probably life-long) search by adding colour to the problem. :cry:
