I agree with Eustace %100 on the button down collar. I always choose this option when I go with an open collar and have never found anything else that I liked the look of better.   - Randy
I have three Robert Talbotts that I've had for a long time and wear carefully (I have one on today incidentally), but more common quality ties I don't fret over that much when they begin to show wear.
