two shirt guys

There are all types of button-down shirt guys, from dressy to messy, and (at least) two who fit into the casual bucket are mr downtown and mr uptown.

mr downtown is,….
untucked
windblown
doesn’t mind wrinkles
denim centric
carefree
organic
liberal
edgy
seeks comfort
mr uptown is,….
tucked in
well groomed
doesn’t like wrinkles
centered on trousers
tidy
refined
conservative
smooth
looks crisp


Of course there is crossover.  Both are interested in style and like to buy premium.  For the shirt, it’s in the details and how it’s worn.
