    Well? None of this "on the right person" business. Pick a team and go with it.

    I vote yes, simply because I have a feeling that you despise them.

    I voted "yes", but the reality is, cutaway collars don't work for me :-(

    Nothing beats the distinctive Turnbull and Asser collar IMHO.

    IMHO when the point of the collar tip is bigger than 90 deg, it is a cutaway.

    Not really. Something more medium is my preference.

    I voted no but if they were paired with really cheap looking, plain cufflinks, I would vote VERY NO.[​IMG]

    My threads have no room for nuance. It's yes or no, thumbs up or thumbs down. The competitor lives or dies based on the whims of the mob.

    But what if one were paired with oversized goldtone sailboats? Not gold, mind, but goldtone. And really, really big. We're talking obviously fake gold. More up your alley?

    In voting, you have to factor in all the possibilities.

    Lol, they were so cheap, they broke when I was first putting them in and I never even got to wear them but that'd pretty much be a perfect mate for the cutaway[​IMG]
