Contrasting collar shirts - yes or no?

post #1 of 122

How many of you like colored shirts, plain or striped, with a contrasting white collar and/or cuffs, a la Apparel Arts?

Not for me.

I've rarely seen them done well. Rare as in never.

Not for me.

Out of 300+ plus shirts I think I own zero. Clearly not for me.

Not a fan. When I see them, I think of the "Future Stock" episode from Futurama, which I coincidently watched a few hours ago.



Are you an 80's Reganaut?

I only have a couple and plan on more. I think they either look awful or great, no middle ground. Here is an example of great http://asuitablewardrobe.dynend.com/...underwear.html

I felt silly whenever I tried one on. I think you have to work as a banker in the City to be allowed to wear one.

He seems to have the necessary gravitas and experience to wear one.

The manager of my local grocery store wears one regularly. I can't tell you how weird it looks to see him bagging groceries.

In practice they almost never look good. Plus they always remind me of that Brown's Bespoke doucheguy,

I have one that was custom made for me, and although I have yet to wear it, I must say that the right fabric / proper fit can make it look fantastic! -M-

They're particularly ugly when paired with some fist-sized knotted shiny silk tie and loud pinstriped suit.

Yellow/white and blue/white from RLPL and then a grey/white from Black label.

YES

They look always very good, especially on me.

Well, of course not but I'm surprised that they get almost no chance here .
