Anyone have a photo of shirts with contrast stitching that works?

Jantzen's sample shirt gallery features a lot of shirts with contrast stitching:

I've seen a number of Jantzen posts experimenting with this feature, especially with two- or three-button barrel cuffs. I know it's a feature that can readily go wrong and look too gaudy, but I figure it should be a nice detail in certain instances. For example, I can picture a white oxford shirt with very light blue contrast stitching either everywhere or just on the cuffs.

I'm talking about shirts that could be used at work, by the way; a black or very dark shirt with contrast stitching for the club is a different story.

I think that shirt looks awful. If I ever saw one, I would expect it to be in a shop that sold western wear.

I went to Casa Camicia today and the shirts with contrasting stitching are interesting. Japan loves the slightly western (cowboy) look. Because the shirts have other funky details it tones down the western look.

I think a shirt could be very convincingly worn, but it would be a more casual shirt. Great store, but that is for another thread.
