Haha - I'm so glad you didn't! I cringe at this and the white and yellow version of this shirt. The factory screwed up and made the whole placket and collar white (only the collar was supposed to be white so that it looked like an actual rugby shirt). Probably my least favorite thing we've ever produced.
Interesting. Was it supposed to have the Lupo collar? I'm having a hard time imagining splitting the placket and collar if it is a one piece like this. I actually think this shirt looks great, not just because I own it. Because of the fabric, I don't think it could have been pulled off well as a rugby shirt, which I associate with rugged, thick, piquet fabric with loud branding/numbering. I guess I like the application of the Lupo collar to a linen popover-type style. Since it was a mistake, glad I didn't pay full price! j/k
