Besides the double right pockets, I've been noticing another growing trend and that is a double button shirt collar. I guess nothing new, but an old idea that a lot of companies have been resurfacing like D&G or Messori. Before I had some I wanted them, and now that I have a few I want something more. While at my relative's house for Thanksgiving I looked at some photos of distant family members probably circa late 1800's/early 1900's. One young guy seemed to be quite dapper with a three-button suit, and a shirt with a collar so high that it was just under his jaw (sort of like a turtleneck if you know what I mean). So I am wondering if there are ANY companies out there that make a shirt like this anymore for I want one? Also I am wondering if these were like the dress shirts we have today, or were the collars detachable from the shirt body? (I have a stiff old collar, which appears to just button on a collarless shirt's front button, from about this same time. I seem to vaguely remember Charlie Chaplin, and/or others, in early movies wearing shirts with removable collars.) Anyways just chewin' the fat. . .
