Strange dress code

Ok so my dress code is business casual but with a tie for 4 days of the week. I am not really used to wearing a tie without a suit but I guess I will have to buy ties.

Can someone estimate the number of ties and shirts that I should have?

Enough to not repeat anything for 2 weeks.

Btw, if you think about it, the dress code is really just "business formal, leave your blazer at your desk."

Yep, Business casual doesn't include ties.

Buy one white tie and tons of white shirts.

Hit up the department store and by the pre-boxed shirt and tie combinations and then knock em' dead slick.

Assuming you're an SA, get 4 or 5 dress shirts and 4 or 5 ties. Friday, wear a sport shirt. Boom.

If you're wearing a tie with no jacket (or will have your jacket off most of the time) invest in a tie clip to keep your shit in check dude
