    The shirt on the top right is 17% wool 83% cotton. I wear it with a suit in winter. Close up as well.

    I'm very hairy, rather like Sean Connery. I'm saddened that I will never wear voile. But at least I can wear this:

    I'm not sure if this means I should get rid of my no-placket shirts or the placketed ones.

    FWIW, I'm still in the warm fuzzy haze of OCBD love 2.0 so I might stay a fuddy-duddy for a bit longer. like another 40 years.

    No placket is the only right placket option. Unless it's an OCBD.

    I've been kind of feeling my placketless OCBD. I thought it was a bit strange and unorthodox at first, but it's really growing on me.

    Nah, I like it myself. My OCBDs are all without plackets. But I'd be willing to suffer them on an OCBD.

    Is possible that you are having OCD more than you are having of OCBD!
