Contrasting collar shirts - yes or no? - Page 4

post #46 of 122
I like to wear them when I go to fancy dinners and stuff like that - wouldn't wear them for work. Here's one that Carl made for me that I particularly like:

I love them and couldn't imagine eliminating them from my wardrobe. They add such interest.

I think they look ok in dark colors with white stripes, but I would never wear one.

I'm not a fan but I kinda like Odoreater's ensemble.

A shirt for every ten pairs of shoes?

I like them when done properly. Collar must be a spread or club and light colored.

Tomasso, those are great - nice combinations. Turnbull and Asser and Hilditch and Key make very nice contrast collar shirts (and Janzten after I asked them to 'copy' them).

I noticed this rather intriguing contrast shirt:

I think that is a white high-collared shirt with a black ascot.

I own two, that I seldom wear, but obviously don't mind. Both T&A's (from back before I knew better), one blue with white collar and cuffs, and the other is a lavender gingham with white collar and cuffs.

Yes, I realized that, but the cuffs are very interesting. They are yellow-striped which presumably matches the body. Of course, it's a high stiff collar, but still it's not something you see in today's contrast look.

Yes they are very 'in' right now. Everyone from A.P.C. to Gap is doing them. They are espcially popular in a gray/blue with a white color. I like the look a lot. Here is the post I wrote about it on my site (it's actually about the GAP Classics Redefined Campaign but I included Gap's contrast shirt under budget fashion)

Sorry - you're absolutely right.

When I first looked at the picture, I had just assumed that those were elaborate flowback cuffs but they are obviously shirt cuffs.

It is an interesting combination but one that I could only see working with a brownish suit like that one.
