Does anyone have photos of Oxford cloth shirts WITHOUT button down collars?

A very early fit pic of mine. Oxford cloth shirt without button down collar.

@DonRaphael, I forgot to answer your question about where to get corozo buttons. I got mine directly from the tailor, but there are many sellers on Ebay and Etsy.

I like flapped patch pockets on overcoats, so there's that.

You are a doofus. There is also that.

I can see this working on overcoats. I feel like they add excess bulk to odd jackets, but that's less of an issue on overcoats.

This has never been remotely a problem on my jackets. Including tweed. YMMV.

My fave blue shirt is an oxford cloth spread collar. Just sayin.

So, I've got this crazy idea. I've got three suit shoes that I barely wear, because I don't wear suits as often as I used to. all allen Edmonds: burgundy shell park avenue, brown shell strand, and black calf Double monk.

Since I only wear suits every once in a while, why do I need both burgundy and dark brown? They're both perfect usable, in great shape actually and well maintained. And shell, because I know the cool kids love shell. However, I was considering selling them both and replace them with just one much nicer shoe, in dark brown, possibly an Edward Green Chelsea in dark oak. Perhaps it's better to have just one excellent shoe that I wear occasionally than two reasonably good shoes that I wear almost never. And I'm actually finding that I prefer calf to shell for dress shoes anyway.

Is there any reason why I should or should not do this, other than its rather insane and materialistic to replace perfectly usable footwear before necessary?

And for those who own both, do you find an appreciable difference in quality between Vass and Edward Green?

TIA.
