    Anyone know where I can find this casual button down shirt at 9:45 and 9:50?



    It seems like a causal contrast (sky blue/white) button down. But can't find a shirt like that. I have seen a few that are similar, but they are more of a dress shirt.

    As you can see, the collar even has a button hole, which allows the collar to go straight up.

    The pic that you mention in your second post is of Michael Douglas, as Gordon Gekko in the original "Wall Street" film.

    I've seen plenty of business shirts with a contrasting white collar, and sometimes white cuffs, too, similar to the one that Michael Douglas is wearing.

    However, I don't think that I've ever seen a shirt with a button-down collar in white, in contrast to the rest of the shirt. Sorry, I haven't watched the clip, so I'm not quite sure what you mean, but this is what is usually meant by a button-down collar (as you can see that the collar ends button down onto the body of the shirt:

    Or do you just mean a shirt that buttons up (ie a business shirt, like the one that Michael Douglas is wearing in your pic) instead of a more casual polo shirt?

    If you want a shirt like the one that Douglas is wearing in your pic, take a look at RL Polo or at a wide variety of other shirt stores, as whilst they're not really common, the style is not that uncommon, either, and you should be able to find one somewhere without too much difficulty.

    Do you mind looking at the vid? it's kinda funny I know.. but at 9:50 you can see the guy wearing a very similar button down shirt.
    It's light blue button down with a white collar. Very similar to michael douglas.
    However, in the video you see the collar is button to the neck, and not the body.

    Mind taking a look? Thanks

    What's wrong with a contrast collar button down?

    Did you see the clip? Or are you just assuming it's a plain shirt with a different color collar?

    Check out the vid at 9:50 and tell me it doesn't look nice for a casual wear.

    Wouldn't you say casual cotton blend pants (khakis) with a contrast button down looks nice for a casual wear?

    For an example, 1 of these pants http://store-us.hugoboss.com/'Wing-...gid=22008#!i=28&color=740_Light-Pastel-Yellow

    http://store-us.hugoboss.com/'Helgo...d.html&cgid=22008#!i=23&color=220_Rust-Copper

    with a light blue/white collar contrast dress shirt or button down (like in the vid).

    Yes, I watched it. It's how I knew how awful it looked.

    It doesn't look nice for any wear.

    If you want it made, go make it. There is a reason you're having trouble finding it and that's because it looks like shit and no one else wants to look like an idiot. You've asked a question and gotten the best possible response (made to measure) you could have hoped for outside of the long shot of someone recognizing the actual shirt. Now quit bumping this after every post to ask (again and again) if people have watched the video.

    To be specific, contrast collars are relatively formal, whereas button down collars are relatively casual. The contrast will not be appealing to many here. You'd be better off asking in Streetwear and Denim (SW&D) although I don't know if that will be to their taste either.

    The answer is you'll likely have to get it MTM, ModernTailor should be able to do it at a reasonable price.
