Yeah, that is the majority of what I get. I did get one cutaway recently, but the only picture I posted of it was on a hanger, in a gag thread.

I still can't figure out all these collar differences.

I don't like'em, especially as I am in finance.

See them side by side and the difference is pretty obvious. A cutaway is very open, not quite 180 degress, but close.

Yeah and that's barely skimming the surface of collars.

Do you not have any of the Flusser books, or other standard references?

Dress for Success, The Executive Look, one or two others. There are tons of these floating around used.

If you have no clothing books at all, the one I recommend first and foremost is Clothes and the Man.

I'll have to look into that.

Not so cheap, sadly. But I think it's a better intro than Dressing the Man, which you can pick up more cheaply.

The white collar look is more ghetto these days.

I have one french blue brooks brothers shirt I picked up on sale in the mid-90s which has a white collar (but not cuffs). I've worn it a few times with a solid white tie (and a fresh tan). That was fun, but rarely wear it now.

I like them, though it's certainly not an every day look. I have a few in my closet and I like to rotate them in periodically for variety.

If done well, they look pretty sharp. I have a few, the best is a PRL shirt from last year, white collar, but the double cuffs are in the shirting fabric.

They definately work with the right outfit...just as some ties work with the right outfit.
