@sunsetchristy:  You’re looking for a shirt with contrasting top-stitching along the edges of the collar, and the placket (yes you got that right!).  I would try department stores, and places like Banana Republic for a shirt like that.  The accent looks like a gingham pattern, and it COULD be called a slip, but that detail probably doesn’t have a name known by anyone but seamstresses and tailors.

This is a pretty informal shirt – that doesn’t mean it can’t be worn at a wedding.  It can absolutely be worn at your wedding, but just want you to know so you make an informed decision.  It should not, for example, be worn under a tuxedo, and probably should not be worn under a 3-piece suit.  But under a 2-piece, grey, pick and pick suit like that one?  Yep that is a SHARP look.  And totally great for you wedding if you are going for that vibe 🙂

But, you know what, print the picture off, and go to Macy’s and Nordstrom’s and Banana Republic, and those type of places.

I would check out a more boutique-type place. One of our GMs works at Johnston and Murphy – it’s a men’s shoe store (part of the Journey’s store corporation). Anyway, besides men’s shoes, they also sell select men’s fashions – FI is always buying what he calls “Cam Flair” shirts there (as in the style of shirts that Cam from Modern Family wears).

If nothing else, a good tailor shold be able to alter an off-the-rack shirt to look like that, or there’s always the customer route.
