Doesn't that look sharp? You need blue dress shirts because they will make you look good in any situation not calling for black-tie formality.
Blue shirts look great with a camel blazer and a rep tie. They look good with basic blue suits. They are extremely smart with those corduroy jackets with the leather patches on the sleeves. There is virtually no pant fabric they don't complement from wool to canvas. Blue shirts are warm in the winter and cool in the summer. They're slimming. Sometimes, in a meeting, your blue shirt will have a really sharp, quick response when that jerk Chad from sales brings up a product launch you bungled, and everyone will laugh at Chad. Who does that guy think he is, anyway? That'll teach him. Some blue shirts can bake.
When don't they make sense? You might want a white shirt for interviews and something kind of shiny for "the club." Other than that, blue is what you need, chief.
