Long-sleeve Polo shirt.
Chambray, denim or corduroy button-down.
Tartan or other plaid button-down.

A big demerit for you if you plan to get all these shirts in similar colors.
MUST-HAVE MID-WEIGHT AND HEAVYWEIGHT FABRICS
Silk or silk blends - conveys status and good for romantic situations.

If you do not like the look, feel, color scheme, style, quality, or any other factors, do not buy it. It's your life and your money.
