It wasn't that it wasn't that they weren't doing it well -- it's that the whole concept is incoherent. I wouldn't wear a white spread collar with an odd jacket. If you need to wear a white spread collar with a textured brown fabric, then the fabric should be used in a suit. If I had to wear it with an odd jacket, it...
