Most tuxedo shops, including MW Tux, carry very nice cotton pleated shirts with French cuffs in a variety of styles. You can choose either a wing collar or a turn-down collar. Many of these shirts are convertible between studs and buttons. Also, many men's stores now sell tuxedos, and they typically carry the same shirts.

A few years ago, some of the leading manufacturers were selling "microfiber" shirts in the same style. This material requires less maintenance than the cotton, but these shirts are sometimes difficult to find.
