1. Never dry clean

As a rule of thumb, white cotton shirts should be wet washed instead of dry cleaned. The process of dry cleaning actually removes the coating on white poplin shirts, which keeps the whites, white.

2. Constant rotation

Any man worth his sartorial stripes will have multiple well-made white shirts in his wardrobe. Treat them well, rotate which ones you wear and they will last you the best part of a decade. 42-20483411

3. Special care

Even to the most undomesticated person, separating whites and colours in a wash is a no-brainer. However, if you want to keep your whites as clean as the day you bought them then make sure you use special white detergent.

4. Iron ease

No one enjoys ironing, so to help make it easier, try putting your newly washed shirt on a hanger while it is still damp and tug out the creases and wrinkles as much as possible. 42-16553374 Details: visit thomaspink.com
