Bless me father for I have Sartorially sinned…  

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I was at the RL store in Palm Beach and tried on a lightweight v-neck sweater. At the time I was wearing a RL pink pony polo and I popped-up the collar to get the sweater through my head and when I saw myself in the mirror I actually liked the look with the v-neck sweater. Luckily, as of yet I have not worn this out in public. Am I breaking to great of a sartorial rule? Am I going to burn in hell for this one? (even though I am Jewish) Jon.

You are now condamned to the 9th ring of sartorial hell for eternity. You are allowed to wear nothing but Vigotti and Stacey Adams shoes and Jones NY suits.

The closest thing I've found to an acceptable popped collar is with polos that have very "weak" collars. That is to say, ones that are soft, not stiff and don't stay "popped" so much as rumpled. I'm no expert on the RL polo, but a few vintage Penguins I have have collars like this. I think it's very much an older style that you will not find on any modern polos. Jews don't seem to do popped collars well. Athletic (not fat) frat boys and black guys seem to be able to do this the best. As always, I demand pics. I still denounce the popped collar. The above is a purely theoretical discussion of what may be the least offensive way of popping one's collar.

Go away, move to streetwear.

Fine, whatever. For the record, I think popped collars look uniformly stupid. The one exception are real hip hop types and huge dudes who could crush me with one hand.
