Alumo's Salvatore Triplo 3x3 160s for the first and
Thomas Mason's Byron-Kent model white (# F333268 1) for the second

8 or 9. White shirts are to shirts as black shoes are to shoes - for me anyway. A necessary evil. I would say 85% of my shirts are something other than white. In fact, I have as many shirts in variations of purple as I do of white,

But do you wear them as often?

The black shoe analogy may be relevant for some. While some individuals may own far more shirts or shoes in other colors, they tend to wear white shirts and black shoes far more frequently, particularly in a business setting.

Lordy!

A whole bunch of formals, and about five or six for sootntie. Love the BB non-wrinkle medium point barrels.

Tell me, though, how can one tell if one's white shirt is "faded"?

I have over 200 shirts. Ascot Chang's marketing has said that a good shirt should last through 50 washings. As I don't buy cheap shirts, I've got a twenty-five year supply, easily.

But every two years I order three white Brooks Brothers shirts to replace the last set that are worn out.
