Had a question I need some opinions on. Â I have been spending roughly the last 72 hours at Dillard's getting some absolute steals on some middle of the road stuff (Murano, Perry Ellis, Claiborne) but ran into a two part question. Â First part - on two of the shirts I got, just some simple plaid pattern Hilfiger button ups, they have buttons for the collars like your typical suit shirt. Â Now these are not dress shirts by any means, so I was wondering if you could leave the collars unbuttoned for a more casual look (my Dad told me when I was growing up that it looks sloppy with suit shirts, so I have always carried that feeling across the board with all button collars). Â Part two - another one of the shirts I got has button collars, but the holes are under the point of the collar itself with a separate piece of material. Â It's basically two pieces with the top being closed (no button hole) and an extra piece sewn onto the bottom so that the collar can be buttoned. Â Now I read on this forum a while ago that that design came out of the desire to make the shirt look better when the top button of the shirt is left unbuttoned (if I remember right). Â Now the second shirts I mentioned are mainly just for clubbing/bars, so they would generally only be worn in a casual environment. Â Just curious what the forum members thought. Â All opinions would be appreciated.
