Wear your frayed shirts with a tweed jacket, corduroy trousers and full brogues. Carry a pipe.

Oxford shirts look good frayed. I don't retire those until they more or less fall apart. But I can't bring myself to wear frayed dress shirts.

Nothing wrong with a little fraying - as long as you are not a slob all around. To me that says that you have been dressing well for a long period of time and have a certain healthy frugal nature. I dunno, I just don't like things to be too perfect all the time.

And I shall call it......"Patina". Not OCBD in this case, an old Huntington end on end.
