Women may have their shoes. But men have their shirts.

Thanks in part to a wave of dapper dressers in pop culture like James Bond and Don Draper, the men’s dress shirt is having its moment. Ray Smith takes a look inside the obsession, and dress-shirt aficionado Greg Root shares his perspective. Photo: “Mad Men”/AMC &”Casino Royale”/MGM.

Men can be a little obsessed with dress shirts, owning loads and geeking out on such details as stitching on buttons or cuffs, fabric weight, and how stiff a collar stands up when worn under a jacket or sweater without a tie. Some men say they’re just being practical: More shirts mean less laundry. Others just can’t help themselves.
