It's just a style.

Context is all.

That's quite a wide fence that you're straddling.
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.

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

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