    This is a question driven by ignorance, not disagreement, but: Is it weird to have a contrast collar on a shirt of this pattern? This pattern to me seems informal and non-business, and contrast collar screams business and finance to me.

    Lufty action shot!


    i think it's a "pocket circle". They can make baroque folds like that, or relatively sedate folds.


    I doubt that traditional rules will be of much use in this case. You have to decide for yourself whether it works. I, for one, don't exactly love the pattern of the shirt, so the contrast collar does little to affect my opinion of it. I could see this as a single non-traditional element in an otherwise subdued fit, though.

    That shirt and jacket combination is a world-class pattern fail. Dull color combination too.

    Too many squares. I do like the pieces individually though...

    I agree that there has been used a wrong shirt, but that's all.
