Grooms have been wearing white down the aisle for decades, opting for virginal shirts instead of dresses.

Gay grooms who take a classic approach can still look stylish today without succumbing to embroidered details a pastel palette or prints.

If you're bringing your best black tie game scrimping on a simple cotton shirt just won't cut it. 

Here are five classic dress shirts where the fabric, cut and cool factor will keep any grooms looking respectable until the last dance but not beyond. There are some things virginal white just can't withstand.
