Wow, that Brooks Brothers shirt up there is one nasty-looking piece of work.

But then of course, there's Brooks Brothers
I like white collared/cuffed shirts, but that one is just hideous. Dan

I have one that is very similar, but with pointed collar and white cuffs.

A question: I heard that single cuffs (either in white or in the same colour as the body) are not appropriate for such a shirt (perhaps the level of formality requires a french cuff).
A white collared shirt requires cufflinks. Whether you prefer the less formal foolishly faddish foppery of the French cuff to the only proper sleeve terminus, the Link cuff, is entirely a matter of personal choice. Not that I have any opinion on the matter.

You must really hate farmers and gansters. I would say 'shirt for dog' ... but that would cause my shop to be picketed by P.E.T.A.

That Brooks Brothers shirt is supposed to evoke a vintage design concept. In Victorian times the white collar would have been detachable. While not attractive today, it is somewhat representative of the Victorian era. Here is the whole Brooks Brothers ad http://www.brooksbrothers.com/IWCatPr...._Id=203 Here is a Victorian shirt http://www.rubylane.com/shops/terry2...2723?froogle=1

only more reason to like you. Although their giving donated furs to refugees and the homeless is rather clever.

The shirt would be rejected by the farmers in my township, who have better taste. Please don't disfigure my golden retriever with it either. But I could use it to wipe her paws when she comes in from the yard.

The answer here are the most important two words in the art of dressing: it depends. If you say "I'd get white.." does that mean that you are an avid wearer or contrast collars/cuffs? If you say "Neither," does that mean that you refuse to wear them? Personally I don't like them except in very few circumstances. While I dont own any, I wouldn't mind it (I personally think they look great with dark thin/white striped shirts, navy or purple).

ahemmm.... let me repeat, I have one very similar to that .... could you at least try to insult my shirt behind my back?

I know my handle is gordgekko -- or would be if I wasn't a moron -- but I have to admit that I'm not a big fan of them. Of course, I've never actually tried one on to see how it looks but I prefer shirts made from one pattern.

Certainly nothing personal, Globetrotter, as it was never my intention to use your shirt to clean up my dog.

FWIW - I kind of like the look, but I have also noticed recently that this appears to be Hugh Hefner's typical attire - every picture I've seen recently, he's in either a solid red or red-striped shirt with white collar and cuffs. OMG - I'm reading Playboy and noticing what Hef is wearing.. I don't think I'm even supposed to notice there are men in that magazine... what has the Styleforum done to me Bradford
