The OCBD collar roll thread - Page 18

post #256 of 328
Am I allowed to wear a BD shirt with a couple buttons unbuttoned? (Not the collar buttons)
post #257 of 328
It is not unallowed.
post #258 of 328
It is allowed provided you are sexy enough and have chest hair.

Then again, I'll wear shirts with spread collars (granted, they have a higher than usual collar bands and larger collars) with two buttons unbuttoned, so perhaps my advice on this issue is best ignored. I think for those who will wear dress shirts with the top few buttons undone, ocbd is the only way to go.

Has anyone tried to get a tailor to put buttons on an existing shirt, making it a button down? I will ask my tailor tomorrow, but I would like to know if anyone thinks it can or can't be done.

Unless the interlining is very light (which you really don't see on RTW shirts) it'll look a little wonky.

Thanks for the reply. I guess you are right. It's probably not worth the effort aesthetic wise or money wise. Perhaps a good excuse to get new shirts. biggrin.gif

Yeah, I wouldn't try that. Also, the collar shape is a bit different I believe, so youre not likely to end up with something that looks particularly good.
post #266 of 328
Good point. I should have thought of these things myself. shog[1].gif

I know this has to with a roll, and this BB hardly has one, but as I going to put this on I noticed the fraying and coming apart, I see this as a badge of honour, give it character that most casual clothing lacks!

That's a lovely roll indeed.

I don't know if this is oxford cloth exactly, but Paul Newman's shirt in Cat On A Hot Tin Roof

At Solosso, we've recently been experimenting with different button-down collars with the intent to create a nice collar roll. My favorite outcome is this white Oxford with 8 cm collar tips and soft interlining. I like my casual shirts with contrast collar lining and button thread.
