Rick, I am sure that those are formal shirts. I gather that you doubt that because of the colors that some were made up in? Many old line English makers (New & Lingwood, for one) offer formal shirts in blue as well as pink and cream ( silk). If the buttons are not attached to a cloth strip for removal and substitution of studs, that would be an oddity for a formal shirt. Cheers! RBP

No, no no. It's AE code for Vox and for second. W split is two Vs (Vox) squared, or V2. The 2 equals second/s. Am I the only guy aside from Vox who knows this?
I have a pair and like them. I also wear a pair of black velvet Belgians and an embroidered pair of black velvet Stubbs and Wooton slippers. Choice depends on the setting. Oh, I forgot: I also have a pair of monogrammed Albert slippers from some forgotten English maker.
Some sham sleeve buttonholes will leave a permanent mark when removed, depending on how the sham was sewn and the type of coat fabric. A skilled tailor can assist you in your decision.

At one time I had approximately a dozen black tie events that I attended at my clubs. I resigned from the last one recently, so that leaves me with one formal event each year. Interestingly it is an event to which white tie may be worn. I have a set of tails but I do not like my shirt and vest. I would probably have to have them made. Some day perhaps.
As I recall from reading an article on him that was published some years ago, he patronizes Anderson and Sheppard, favoring bold patterns.
I am fifty one and have been wearing tasseled loafers since I was twenty. I have several pairs, the oldest being a very sleek pair from Tricker's in a snuff suede. I special ordered them in 1988 and they still have their original soles and heals. The price was eighty five dollars.
