Especially in the UAE, where in many high-end bars and restaurants you need to be wearing a collared shirt, it's important to be well stocked. And it's good to know you can match your attire with your favourite automotive brands, as many produce quality, stylish shirts.

The Oxford gent

If check is a little too loud for you, you can always opt for a more understated, gentlemanly appeal and this Ferrari New Oxford shirt is just the trick. Straight, clean lines and a delicately stitched Prancing Horse as the centrepiece of a heraldic-like emblem on the left breast give it a touch of class. Check it out at store.ferrari.com. Dh649.

Sophisticated cool

Germany isn't always noted for its style but BMW's apparel is a glowing example of quality materials being used to cool, sophisticated effect. This rich black shirt has a striped woven tape detail on the cuffs, inner placket and collar, as well as the subtlest of BMW logos on the breast. Perfect for that glam social occasion.
