    A "pullover" four button front is one of Mercer's MTO options.

    [​IMG] How did I forget about Mercer. Don't have any yet, but have been eyeing them from quite a while. When I get around to it, I'll go with the Brooks/Press hybrid: unlined collar popover ocbd with the flap pocket. IMHO a four-button popover is just about right - one step from the coat front, but still a popover (tie covers the placket anyway).

    I feel it's my SF duty to note that y'all should stay away from these types of collars.

    There; I have said it. Now carry on.

    ^^ The irony will be only too thick when you're playing polo and a collar point puts out your eye.

    ^ I actually like that look. With the right summer fabric, it would work nicely with jeans in a casual setting.
