    Carey Grant or Jesus Christ, I don't care who has worn a shirt in that style. I would never wear something like that. I'd have to mock myself behind my back.
    I would be happy to help. If necessary.

    Kudos for the embellishment, one tires of the same old anti-BD FC mantra.[​IMG]

    I like the look and think that I might add one to my next shirt order.

    Actually, I'm going to Carl at Cego next week and order one(my first Cego shirt) with a high collar and possibly two buttons on the collar.

    Might be Andrea or one of the kids behind this brainstorm. I doubt old Al would've come up with something like that in a bazillion years.

    While I try to decipher what the hell that last post just said, I'd really like to see exactly why this combination is so disliked. It's the same as all those people who wank to Aeon Flux and say the movie's bad, but never actually say why. "IT JUST IS!!!!111qq2q3"

    The mismatch of casual collar and flashy, much-more-formal cuffs just doesn't work for me.

    More formal because they happen to be on evening shirts? I'm seriously not getting it. Maybe I too am of the mind that buttondown and double cuffs are simply another combination one can come up with. After all, no one seems to complain about point collars being on casual shirts or barrel cuffs being on dress shirts with point collars. [​IMG] Hope I don't come off as pretentious, but I'm not eternally bound by all these endless rules on dress. Like Jason, if I see something and think it'll look good, I do it. I do know what to avoid to give off the wrong impression subconsciously in others' minds depending on situation. Point is, this just doesn't seem like one of those things.

    I think it would look great with notch lapel DJ and repp tie.

    I hear what you're saying. But it's like wearing bals with khaki trousers and short-sleeved shirts. Some guys think it looks good. I find it the juxtaposition very jarring. Same here with buttondown collars and cufflinks.

    Out of curiosity, what links would you wear with such a shirt? Silk knots?

    I don't know. I am happy wearing a spread collar shirt with french cuffs and a knit tie with a flat end. I don't see this as any different, but maybe the combination that I describe above is jarring to some people. The cufflinks were tigers eye bars with gold trim and chain.

    It's an interesting but subtle shirt that I wouldn't mind owning.
