I hate wearing dress shirts without a jacket

I hate wearing dress shirts without a jacket/blazer over top because it means you need a much slimmer fit/less comfortable shirt and you need to be more careful about the back untucking.

But I feel like wearing a blazer in a business casual environment is way too formal, and the quarter zip look is dumb as fuck IMO.

Anyone have advice?

 

wear a looser fit.  I do this and dont care. roll the sleeves up a tiny bit as well 

honestly nowdays most people dress so chit in the office just wearing a simple dress shirt will go a long way.

 

Mizzen + Main makes very comfortable dress shirts as a recommendation

 

What some dude above me said, Patagonia. Insanely comfortable and most of the time respected by coworkers

Buy better shirts. I have 44" shoulders and a 32" waist so finding dress shirts that fit me properly was always a challenge, eventually I found a tailor and just had custom shirts made. It's not that expensive (depending on the material you choose) but on average it'll cost the same as what you might expect to spend a Nordstrom with the added benefit of having a shirt that is designed to fit you perfectly.

 

Depending on the city you are located in, you could check out made-to-measure stores like Proper Cloth, Alton Lane, SuitSupply, or Ratio Clothing. Cost should come out to $100-$150/shirt (closer to $100-$120 for for standard twill, poplin, and oxford), depending on material. Alternatively, as someone else mentioned, wearing an unstructured blazer is a great way to feel a little more stylish. Keep the pants and jacket mismatched (i.e. navy blazer and gray/charcoal pants) to maintain a slightly more casual look to the outfit. Any of those clothing brands above should have excellent choices for blazers, too.
