    What do you think? I can't decide whether I REALLY like them...or REALLY dislike them...

    It's just a style.

    Context is all.

    That's quite a wide fence that you're straddling.[​IMG] I could see a linen band collar shirt with a loose cut worn untucked, while on an Greek island or such. But, not fitted and tucked with a jacket.[​IMG]

    They stink of the 1980s and were ugly and sexless back then. IMHO.

    I'm making a big X with my forearms right now.

    I have never seen a banded collared shirt until a few weeks ago. Intriguing, but not for me I don't think. I'd rather just wear a button down collar w/o a tie if I'm going for a look a little more casual, or a bold colored pointed collar.

    They're very Yanni-esque, and they're inevitably worn blousy.

    Thanks, they have now been re-filed in my brain from "interesting oddity" to "AVOID AT ALL COSTS!"
