    It's probably ok as a casual shirt ( not my kind of style though). Wouldn't wear it with a suit and tie. I know Eton make a quality shirt, but there is always something that keeps me from buying: crazy contrast buttons, contrast collar lining etc...

    i dont think its ugly, nor do i think you made a mistake. but i also dont think it will work with a SC, probably great with nice chinos though. its good to have nice casual shirts.

    It might just be a question of taste, but the stripes and the quite dark colour would keep me from wearing it with a suit and tie - then again I wear light blue shirts 4 out of 5 workdays :)

    Barrel cuffs are button cuffs.

    Understood that, but it's french, so it's a crazy mix here how it will work as a casual shirt...?

    French matches the formality of the cutaway collar. You could try the shirt with a tan or sand colored suit, red or orange neat tie, and brown suede shoes.

    ^

    Just return it. If you need that much thought on how to wear something, it's probably not worth having.

    I tend to agree with Fraiche - unless you happen to have a tan or a sand coloured suit - not everyone does :)

    On sale can't be returned and of course I think a lot before I wear something. Clothes is my second life that's why I became a member here.
