    What's with your shirt collar? Is this the new double popped polo?

    It is, in fact, the dreaded...

    double collared button down shirt!

    The ridiculousness of it negates anything else which could be said.

    Edit: That, and wearing a green shirt underneath one with a white base.

    Just wait until you see my double-cuff trousers: one cuff on top of another.
    And I will be breaking out my quadruple-breasted jacket for the holidays. Fold over once, then again.

    jeezsus... you guys kill me... it's a shirt and no the collar is not "popped"... the green matches the pocket square....but really I'm more amused by how offended everyone gets by someone who doesn't always follow the sacred "rules"... they're clothes for Christ's sake! They go on, they come off. damn guys..relax. :)

    But what was your thinking behind that collar? Why not triple or quarduple? Or then just sticking with one?

    That seat cushion is awesome...looks hand made.

    You are a bachelor with interesting tastes. It's no wonder that you strike fear in the other members.

    Thank you... good eye. It is hand hooked.. (it's called "hooking" I believe but not the kind that first comes to mind! :lol:) and the chair is antique, hand inlaid..... as for the collar!! it's just something different... like my previous loose fit odd jacket&trousers with a nod to the "Oxford bags" look or something that Agnelli or Barbera might have done. Just having fun with it...

    Don't worry, I merely think in free-associative terms. Some might call it logorrhea. I wasn't implying anything. I like you in Leisure Suit Larry style.

    I think you should do an interview with him and feature it on your blog. I assume also that your next batch from NSM will feature this most classic of details.

    Your shoes appear to be a size large. Are you experiencing blisters or discomfort?
