    No I don't partake in that stuff, sorry. Is that a requirement of the thread?

    The thing that always bothers me with the collar roll with tie is that the knot doesn't cover up the space. You always see the part that wraps around your neck going up into those cavernous rolls.

    I did not know this thread existed...

    This is one of the best threads! Is that a custom shirt, gdl?

    I actually like it when this happens. I like showing a little of the tie band around the knot.

    I wasn't sure what OCBD stood for exactly so I looked it up. Now that I know it stands for Obsessive Compulsive Behavioral Disorder this thread makes more sense. [​IMG]

    Navy OCBD. Unlined collar. Not a very pronounced roll but liked it overall.

    I opt for longer points on my BDs and wear them unbuttoned:

    Ha, thanks. A colleague randomly snapped that the other day to test out his new smartphone camera.

    I like everything about it.

    I often wear a casual DB with an undone polo collar as well.

    Thanks guys.

    - The shirt is a 100s Monti made by Geneva of NY.

    - The coat is a 4x2 DB odd jacket (11oz. Harrisons linen) made by Mina Adamo / NSM.
