White Button Down Shirts

According to The Classic Ten, men's white button down shirts first made their public appearance under suits in the Napoleonic era. This was also an early example of underwear becoming outerwear. So next time you see some woman sporting a bra and little else, blame Mr. Darcy.

The basic button down is pretty easy to come across. If you want a jazzed up version of this wardrobe staple, start here.
