The Best Dress Shirts to Buy on Amazon Right Now

Stuff your closet with style at the click of a button.

As Edward Norton famously espoused in Fight Club, "Six white shirts. Two black trousers. You pack what you need to survive." With all due respect to Mr. Norton, we disagree. The evolution of dress shirts in recent years means the stylish man cannot survive 2017 on white alone. For proof, look at Ted Baker's floral prints, Original Penguin's textured and tailored offerings, or, for an updated take on said white dress shirt, Todd Snyder's band collars. And get this: these button-ups—and so many more—are all available on Amazon.

Yes, the same place you can order headphones and books and toiletries—and everything else (so long as it's legal)—has finally cracked the market and become a haven for fashion. But, with an overwhelming 21,000 dress shirt options on the site, where do you begin? Well, for starters, you could do worse than these 20 hand-selected picks. They're cool and comfortable without sacrificing an ounce of professionalism—perfect for going from the desk to the steakhouse any day of the week. And once you make your pick(s), be sure to check out the 20 sharpest suits available on Amazon, too.
