If the cloth hasn't faded signficantly - not typically a problem, though I just let the shirtmaker decide on this - I get them replaced in the same fabric. If it's an issue (or if I just want variety/a different look), I get them replaced in white (especially if I already have multiple solids in the same colour anyway). It's certainly cheaper than buying a new shirt, and also an opportunity to switch fastening style if you want. For example, l had couple of shirts changed from french cuffs to button cuffs, to add to their versatilty (it lets me wear them with sweaters).

I absolutely expected this to be the case in a non-CBD environment.

I'm having a hard time discerning whether replacing collars / cuffs on a non-white shirt with white makes it casual. Royalty would spare no expense and replace the entire shirt. If that is the case, I think I'll be building iteration 2.0 with business casual in mind.

 

Will at ASW just posted an article about the formality of patterned contrast-collar shirts. I posted a discussion thread here about their place in general some months ago, if you do a search.

 

I suspect the general cultural consensus (probably the most important thing from a CBD perspective, I would guess) is that a contrast-collar (solid) shirt is pretty much business-only, and you have to be very careful indeed not to let it become cheesy (and/or ironic). Think whatshisname in Office Space, or the 1980s-Guy in Futurama. I agree with Will that patterned contrast shirts drop down a formality notch. Recently, contrast shirts have been used in some casualish fashiony looks (I want to say RL or Hackett? Can't remember)

 

I have no idea what the royalty might do, or not do. :)

 

Sorry not to be more helpful; hopefully a more CBD-aware poster will come along soon and answer better.

I can't remember. Is olive CBD under original Manton rules?

As it appears in that picture, sure. In real life? Maybe on a Friday. So, I guess yes!

I kinda feel like I'm spamming the forum with this pic, but it applies to so many current threads! biggrin.gif

Did this thread die and reanimate as the "good taste" thread?

We're battling to bore Styleforum to death. This is a nefarious plan.

I've been lurking in this thread for a while and appreciate all the insight you all have brought me through it and others on the forum.

sugarbutch, posts 6634, 6637, and 6652 are all dynamite business dress, right on the money. If you would loose the pocket square I think they would all be perfect. Though I will say the pocket squares are well done.

luftvier, 6649 screams take the jacket off, roll up your sleeves, and get to work. 6653 appears comfortable for the jacket to remain on, but wouldn't be out of place with the jacket off and the sleeves rolled up. It's my favorite of yours over the last few pages.

Or am I just crazy and wrong?

Anyway, thanks again.

I think it's pretty awesome that luftvier, who was one of the champions of sartorial whimsy on SF, has converted to CBD and is posting sober outfits ! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

I agree but part of his legacy (that he should be equally proud of) is also posting one of the two worse outfits ever posted on the internet, it was a beer garden type jacket.

Holy Moly, #1 and #2 worse outfits ever in one thread!

BTW, before anyone clicks on that link, be forewarned that there is a jeans fit pic and boots fit pic in that thread that you will not be able to scrub from your brain once you are exposed to it.
