The OCBD collar roll thread - Page 23

post #331 of 334

A major advantage of a button down collar is that when worn unbuttoned the collar doesn't spread out and, instead, stays standing in place. If you don't like that look, then the button down collar is not for you.

Everyone's picture posted here has spread to it. I'm saying that the top button is more or less sitting right behind the button hole making it look as if it's fully buttoned.
As mentioned previously, these are new purchases and are straight out of box. So is this something that'll go away as it's broken in? Just looking to see if anyone else been in this situation.

I misunderstood. Yes, the collar should break in and give you the spread you expect. It just needs to run through the wash.

Ah, wonderful to hear! Thank you. I was quite excited to get my hands on some nice OCBDs and was becoming worried they would all need to be exchanged. 

 

I'll post some pictures of my lovely BB Golden Fleece OCBD once it's broken in and develops a nice roll.:D
