Batman:

I wear shirts every day, with suits. 

 

I buy wool suits because they aren't too hot. Never wear black suits during the day. Grey or blue are better. I have four suits, two blazers (one wool, one cashmere with no lining so cooler).

 

I have about fifteen shirts. I leave two buttons undone when not wearing tie. Always wear the tails inside trousers - with jeans (if jeans are new and shirt pattern goes with jeans) you might get away with not tucking in.

 

No rolled sleeves. Best shirt sizes are from 3 Wise Men - the length are ideal for tucking tails, others seem to be too short.

 



Np black suits in day is due to heat or fashion rules? If unwritten rule is charcoal ok?

 

Primarily fashion. Charcoal is fine, but not too dark (i.e. not so dark it looks like black).

 

If you don't wear a jacket, black dress pants are fine (in my opinion) - but a full black suit is for funerals or more formal occasions.

I think the op means button down collar rather than shirt :)

From memory there are two types, point down and button down. A point down I would probably wear in a formal situation and would probably consider a tie.

A button down collar I would probably wear informally say with jeans and would leave the top button on the shirt open so the collar opens up, but the collar buttons should be fastened I think. One might wear a jacket over the top. I would consider this informal and sometimes you may see people with sunglasses hanging off the top button of the shirt. I think a good pair loafers would work as well.

One can still maintain a bit of formality by using plain colours rather than patterns, along with dress trousers or chino style, or one can go for a pattern or a chambray shirt

Beware the chinos.  One splash while you are washing you hands and it looks like you have wet yourself ...

 

These days I don't even bother with dress trousers.  Nice jeans a shirt and a monochrome jacket if I need it.

 

Formality is over-rated.  I've never owned a comfortable pair of dress trousers.
