Why can't Matuozzo make you an OCBD? I'm sure she could, but it would be overkill for a shirt I'd like to neglect and abuse with impunity. With discounts, these bad boys are only ~$100 each. I don't like it. I don't know if I am just being a purist, or if that is my considered aethetic judgement. Maybe a bit of both. I modified the classic design a little with my CEGO OCBDs, but not that much. Keep in mind I have never liked mitered or two button cuffs. I also don't like French fronts. And I agree with Captain Snark that a two button collar on an OCBD just seems transgressional in a bad way. I guessed that you wouldn't like it--which is fair enough, because I wasn't sure that I'd like it either. It did take me a little while to get used to looking at the double-button collar. Now I'm sold. When worn, the changes don't register so much. We'll see what you think when I put up more photos. I don't think OCBD's should be so "formal." They are inherently casual shirts. French placket, mitered cuff... Well, yes, I suppose that is the fundamental controversy. But I think the fabric and button-down collar keep thinks pretty casual; in application, the other details aren't particularly noticeable. I like it. I would buy it. Ah, a fan! I'm not wild about the lack of a placket on such a "heavy" shirt . . . I agree this was the most dubious change, but it looks alright. There's no awkward bulking.
