    ALSO, Ebonyguy, those are some KILLER brown wingtips; looks like the leather has almost a pebblegrain texture to them. Awesome.[/quote]

    Thanks and you are correct Sir! One of the reasons I purchased them was the nice pebble grain finish. Nicest Borrelli's I've seen in awhile. Added bonus, the medium brown color is very versatile so they can be worn with any number of suits in my collection!

    Not saying I get his sense of humor, but I think pretty much all NOBD's shirts that I have seen here are button down.

    Ik heb geen enkel buttondownshirt, Lonneker... Mijn boordpunten mogen altijd vrolijk flapperen (niet dat ze dat doen).

    Ooops - seems that there are different uses of 'button-down'. Wiki tells me that I am on the wrong and you are on the right side. :eh:

    "From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    A shirt, or dress shirt in American English, (also button-front, button-down, or button-up shirt) is a garment with a collar, a full-length opening at the front from the collar to the hem, and sleeves with cuffs. Shirts are predominantly used by men, since women usually wear blouses. The front opening is fastened using buttons or studs, and the cuffs close with buttons or cuff links. Shirts are normally made from woven cloth, and are often accompanied by a jacket and tie, for example with a suit or formalwear, but shirts are also worn more casually. In British English, dress shirt means specifically the more formal evening garment worn with black- or white- tie, also discussed below. Some of these formal shirts have stiff fronts and detachable collars attached with collar studs. "Button-down" is sometimes used incorrectly to describe the front buttoning of a shirt; a "button-down" shirt refers to a shirt with an American "button-down" collar introduced by Brooks Brothers in 1896, discussed below."
