Contrasting collar shirts - yes or no? - Page 5

post #61 of 122
My only one, out of around forty dress shirts: It's rarely worn, but I tried it yesterday, and rather liked it. I'll have to look into this.

I have two, but I think I will get another one soon. I have come to prefer the contrast collar, but self cuffs. I want a faint blue pencil stripe (white ground) with a white collar and self cuffs, to wear as a formal day shirt in lieu of plain white.

Here is my RLPL Keaton. I haven't found an occasion to wear it yet but I like it and think it works under the right circumstances.

I actually have a strong preference for contrast cuffs - just seems like it completes the look.

In any event, sounds like a great shirt. Will you go with a cutaway collar on that one?

It's more "canonical" (or whatever) to get self cuffs. If weren't so lazy, I would get a true detachable collar formal day shirt. Those had self cuffs. But that's a pain in the ass, so I am going to get an attached collar. I don't mind the contrast cuffs altogether, but not for a formal day shirt.

I think so. Geneva has not yet made me one, so this would be a good place to start.

That's surprising. I would have thought that detachable cuffs would have come with detachable collars and that those cuffs would also have been white.

I think that is true a long time ago (19th century) but by the '30s, definitely not.

I like them, but don't have many. The ones I wear are pinned club collars.

I thought they were called Winchesters?

Contrast collars rock, though I only happen to have one or two at the moment (must get more!).

Like cantab. I prefer them with contrast cuffs to complete the "flash git" look.

Who makes a proper OTR "cut away" like the one you posted a while ago?

Probably should be retired to the 1980s, egomaniacs and Ralph Lauren theatric fans. Looks best with a Navy, DB suit and high formality. On casual it makes you seem as if an actor in a period piece, not contemporary. .However, LS seems to pull it off yet still seem 2007.

The one I posted? I don't recall posting a cutaway. Anyway, I don't know who makes them, apart from RLPL, depicted above.

Saw a woman with one on today, untucked and very slim fitting. She looked great, very sexy.

I stand corrected in the shirt porn thread it appeared like a cutaway when folded, but was actually a med spread.
