well, that's an opinion, we are all entitlled to them. I wear a lot of stuff that is a little unususal, 3 piece double breasted suits, braces, etc. but my fabrics are all very conservative and well made, and I wear very conservative ties, and I am consistant - all of my shirts are the same cut, all of my suits are one of two cuts -  so that I think it gives me a certain personal style. I also have a certain dignaty and gravity, while not taking myself too seriously. These contribute to the effect -  that of a pompous bastard, as my mother likes to call me.

...It is my opinion that contrast collars look great when dressed up, however too many people attempt to wear these shirts casually...  I have seen a man come to work in Khakis and a contrast collar shirt with cufflinks.  It wasnt pretty.  That said, i don't see Bill Lumberg from Office Space when i think of contrast collars...

Judge for yourself: Contrast Collar on pink shirt It's a MTM Barba BTW.
Great shirt and tie. They look good together. Supports my point - upscale contrast collar shirts (Barba, Borrelli) can be worn without irony if the rest of the ensemble is quality.

I agree that the Barba shirt looks good, but I think that a contrasting collar and cuff shirt is too severe for some men, depending on field. If I wore it to my agency, it would look like I had an interview down on Wall Street later the same day. It would stand out so much it would be inappropriate, in my opinion.

I think I should consider myself lucky then that I have the opportunity to stand out a bit more That's the good thing about studying Apart from that I'd like to be self-employed in about 1 or 2 years. So then I'd probably have to stay on the safe side when meeting with new possible clients etc.
