I saw the neckband-with-stud (i.e. no collar attached) sported by Michael Caine and Christopher Plummer in 'The Man Who Would be King.' This suggests, assuming the filmmakers got 1880s fashion right, that an acceptable alternative to an attached collar and tie was to just put a shirt stud in the neckband. Looked bloody good with a four button drill three-piece suit and pith helmet.

Mind you, when they did wear collars and ties, they looked absolutely awful.

Personally, not something that I would wear, therefore I consider it eccentric. However, many would decide on who was wearing it. If the wearer was a fashion icon, I could see many say that this was an extremely innovative, and copy the look.

I like Mandarin collars but not with a french cuff.

Innovative or eccentric?
I'd say it was neither--I just threw out a shirt with mandarin collar and french cuffs, purchased many years ago at none other than
Men's Wearhouse. So, you know, it's been done before. Â But on the bright side, you're gonna like the way you look; I guarantee it. Â
