    I liked the scene in "21" where G.Gekko tells Fox, "don't come in here dressed like that again."

    Marc, you're not wanted here. You've been banned at least a dozen times under various pseudonyms. Will you force us to take legal action?

    Actually I think Stewart Copeland (former drummer of the Police) did a fantastic job with the soundtrack.

    Interesting that you would claim this, given that you're persona non grata over there and could only have gained membership under false pretenses. Of course, given your history of lying, stalking, and other antisocial behavior online, I wouldn't put anything past you.

    See, isn't this more interesting than discussing sack suits, J Press, pink and green outfits, and bad haircuts.

    I haven't been around long enough to be able to discern what is sarcasm and joking in this thread and what isn't. I had no idea this topic has so much history.

    No, there isn't. I apologize that members keep having to see it play out. This Grayson/Goldstein guy really is disturbed.

    so other then the giving credit to mr. kabbaz-which he is due for the gekko shirts. What about the original aspect of this thread.

    Contrast collars today in June 2005--too 80's -going in the way of "flock of seagull"

    or timeless a style with lasting and staying power if done with taste and restraint

    I vote "B". I don't have many of them, but I like the ones I have. Also, I have certain shirts that when the collars and cuffs finally give out, I will have them replaced with white. At least that's the plan now.

    I rather like them, but don't wear them personally.

    I'm sorry you fail to see the humor in this post. Considering that obviously Moses did NOT make the shirts, and Ghandi and I did NOT go out for shots, I would have thought that you'd be able to relax a little bit and enjoy the jab at Greyson. Looks like I was mistaken.

    It's good to see you are still here, as I haven't seen you post recently. Yes, I know you made the shirts.

    Welcome back.

    The actual line is even better:

    "Buy a decent suit, will ya? You can't come in here looking like this. Go to Morty Sills, tell him I sent you."

    I'd say B as well with emphasis on my opinion that contrast collars look a lot better on tall men. Most short men that I've seen in contrast collars look ganstar in apperance. Again just my opinion but strong enough to steer me clear of the shirts altogether. I've seen some from time to time that I'd like to buy, last years spread RLPL shirts come to mind and a few T&A RTW selections from this years collection, but I think these shirts can only be pulled off by certain individuals. In the end its walking a tin line, especially if your a young professional, as I think to most people associate contrast collars with old man stuffiness. Not to say that it can't be pulled off remarkably, as was the case the other day at Hermes in Atlanta with a fine Asian gentlemen in a impressive contrast shirt (looked T&A) paired with a 2B navy pinstripe suit and yellow hermes tie.
