Loosening up and being more casual can provide a nice break, although it's often tough to find a t-shirt with a regular tie on it. For shirts from a more formal Italian suit savant going casual-er, try on Ari.
From a Soho atelier that's been crafting handmade suits for New Yorkers for 15 years, Ari's put out a line of more-casual handmade-in-the-Boot shirts, crafted with the attention to detail you find in crazy-high-end dress shirts, but offered in fabrics that could pair with either a suit or jeans, even though there's usually only one Van Damme, unless of course you're watching Golden Globe- and Tony Award-winning Double Impact. The Ari9 line of shirts has a spread collar compact enough to not flop around when you wear it open, and comes in fabrics like a Burberry-ish red/black plaid, a handsome black & beige plaid, and a pink that upon closer inspection is actually made of tiny red stripes, also the drink of preference among discerning Jamaican dwarves. The slightly dressier Ari1 line has a clean no-pocket front and a semi-spread collar, and's offered in solids like lavender, black, classic light blue, and a coffee-ish brown, all of which come with a "touch of stretch", also what got Armstrong locked up, although shortly after that, he reached his rubbery arm all the way across the jail and just took the keys off the warden's belt.
Ari's also got an online shop with Italian-made silk ties and pocket squares, including a blue check job, a grey and blue herringbone, and a bunch of paisleys, hopefully one of which is loose enough to tell Brad he sucks.
