    Brooks Bros. shirt
    J Crew tie


    This is a great comparison. This ^ is a great looking shirt and tie combo....but this V is uniquely beautiful.


    Come on, guys, we need some more pics of collar rolls.

    What is wrong with the shirt collar? It looks off, is it your posture or are the button placements asymmetric?

    Nothing is 'wrong' with it -- this is the collar roll we are talking about. Sometimes it is symmetric, sometimes it is not (depending on the collar construction, tie fabric etc). To my eyes, CP's collar looks absolutely beautiful..

    What have you been smoking? The buttons look off and clearly something is wrong, it might be the photo angle but it doesn't look right. I am not referring to collar roll, right button is placed further down than left button.

    It's the weird angle of the camera. The buttons are OK. The tie might have been askew when I held the camera.

    That is a great roll. Is the Troy from O'Connells?

    I prefer to leave the points outside the sweater.

    It was a thrift store find. There's an independent clothier in Greenville (still in existence) who used to sell a lot of Troy Guild shirts and so they pop up occasionally around here. Mostly I sell/trade them on the Trad Thrift Exchange, but this one fit me.

    O'Connells is, however, the last source for true New Old Stock Troy Guild shirts.

    I wear the sweater under the shirt.

    All from the brothers, Brooks.

    My head was turned, and hence, caused the collar points to be askew.
