A white dress shirt is a staple in any smart and versatile wardrobe, but which brands are doing them better? What does a more sustainable white dress shirt look like?

Lower-impact white dress shirts worth a look

There’s nothing quite as satisfying in the business fashion world as slipping your arms into a pristine white button-down. How could you not feel sleek, stylish, and ready to tackle everything that important work meeting or big event has to throw at you?!

For the consciously minded, it’s not as simple as turning to high street labels. Most shirts are made with harmful materials like conventional cotton or polyester. So we rolled up our sleeves and found 22 sustainable white dress shirts for the next time you need to look and feel like you know exactly what you’re doing—because we all need that confidence boost sometimes.

Below you can find a classic organic cotton option from Swiss brand CARPASUS, size and gender-inclusive 100% TENCEL pieces from Hong Kong’s AndAll, and GRAMMAR’s shirts handmade in NYC. Let’s get down to business.
