    As we welcome in 2009, I'm interested to know what forum members think about dress shirts with white collars.

    As with anything, it can look great as long as it's done right.

    I will be wearing a Gekko suit this New Years eve actually.

    Do you mean white shirts with white collars or any color shirt with white collar?

    I have some but wear them rarely. I find them to be fine as long as the cuffs are french and white aswell. To often I have seen white collars without the cuffs and that looks just strange.

    I've got a few and I really like them. They're not for everyone, and I'm sure some people feel I look ridiculous, but as a small part of my shirt collection, they're a good addition.

    I voted no. Not a fan of the look on myself even though I do own a very light blue shirt with contrasting white collar. I don't wear it often.

    I've something very similar, and it is french cuffed. I usually pair it with a nice sweater and a jacket on top.

    That way, only the collars and a little of the cuffs are showing. I've found that it creates a very interesting effect, and I've rather grown to like the look.

    I love them. But like all things, they're not for everybody.

    I like them on striped shirts that have white in the body. On solid white shirts, I accept no substitute.

    I prefer them with white french cuffs but I don't have a problem with just the collar being white if I like the rest of the shirt.
