White collar/cuffs on colored shirts - Page 4

post #46 of 51
I've always liked contrasting collar/cuff if worn with a good tie and subtle color/pattern. It can look stylish if done right. It can look good with a thinly striped gray (for a light gray effect), or a light blue or yellow, even pink, I generally prefer lighter colored stripe patterns for the shirt. I think the solids look tacky if the color is too bold, and I've rarely seen one where the tie matches well. I think the contrast between the collar and shirt is just too strong and overwhelms the jacket and tie, creating a kind of "screaming madness" effect - not sure how else to describe it. Kind of like that tie on page 1. Horrible. I mean, who would wear such a monstrosity? As for Heffner, has his style ever been relevant to people with jobs? I definitely would not wear a silk robe to work. I can see him with a bold red w/ contrasting collar, but he is all about leisure (playboy), so that doesn't mean it would work on me.

(Tyto @ Feb. 16 2005,23:38) little too Gordon Gekko for my usual dealings.
Sir, that is an outrage.
No offense intended: I like his wardrobe, but as I said, it just doesn't fit in the business climate that I occupy. For going out, however (the theater, etc.), I'm all for it.

I like them, but only with white collar as well as cuffs. Not just only the collar. I have a couple of those shirts. This is an Oger Napoli (shop in holland, believe thay are made bij Finamore but not sure) This is the Etro equivalent

Despite having staggeringly dull tastes in clothing (Brooks Brothers 1956) I do have a vague recollection of wearing them when I was considerably thinner and darker haired. My requirements for them are however: 1. Both cuffs and collar must be white, not just the collar. 2. Tennis collar, i.e., non-spread plain collar. 3. Solid color body to the shirt. 4. Never wear French Blue shirts; these are for waiters in the better white tablecloth restaurants, but are unacceptable for a gentleman.
