Interesting Polo Collar Styles

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
In an earlier post someone mentioned collars that are very short and cannot be folded down. I actually have an old shirt kind of like that and I really, really like it. Someone mentioned that old RL's were made in that style. Any pictures? And any way to still get a hold of shirts with collars like that? Also, and this is going out there, but I've seen some women in polos that are popped where the collar curves into the shirt...anybody else seen this? Is it available in mens? Am I the only one who likes that look, or is it terrible?

I have one of the RL shirts in question. The collar can be folded down, but it is very short. The back can just be folded in half before it exposes the tag. (Hard to explain, but just trust me, it's quite short). The front part doesn't really fold, but instead sort of rolls over. I like this shirt, especially because I got it at a thrift store for $3. I'm not sure what you're describing with the women's shirt, unless you mean a johnny collar, which is like a polo collar where the placket can't meet- sort of a combo v-neck and polo collar. I wouldn't wear one of those, and the consensus seems to be that they are pretty far into the girly side of the clothing spectrum. Don't know if that's what you meant, though.

It's not a johnny collar, and I apologize for my poor description of the collar, but I'll try again. Envision a popped collar, if you will. At some the end of the collar it makes a sharp, 90-degree turn and goes down toward the placket. Now imagine that, instead of a sharp 90-degree turn, the collar started a slope about a half-inch, inch before the down-turn. I should find a picture.

My favorite polo collar is a vintage Penguin that has thin plastic collar stays sewn-in to the edge of the collar points so that the collar looks more like one on a button-front shirt.

Popped collar: checked. Shades worn indoor: checked. Ironically funny tshirt: checked. Hand sign: checked. This here, ladies and gents, is a prime candidate for douchebagery. Buddy, for the love of god, I hope that's not you.

Ha, just realized that now. A gay guy in my group of acquaintances used to flash that to all the girls. Of course, he got a way with it everytime. If I, on the other hand, ever tried...

E for effort for taking the dull, cliched "wit"/irony, and turning it into something of actually juxtaposition.

I recently found one at a thift store. It has quickly become my favorite.

And it has a pocket on the chest, which I love.
