What do you guys think? I'm talking chinos + rolled up sleeves
Yeah, fine, sure.
A few years back this was all the rage in the fashion world, though it seems to have subsided. I'm still a big fan of contrast collars, though, and, while they seem to burst into and out of popular trends, they will remain a timeless choice in my book.
The real brilliance of the contrast collar, IMO, is that it will permit a man whose complexion is flattered by white to pull off a very wide range of colors that otherwise may not suit him quite as well.
Not a fan.
Nope - don't do it. At least not if it's made from a 'dress shirt' fabric.
Same is true of a solid color shirt - if the fabric is poplin or other 'flat weave' it just looks wrong with casual trousers.
Oxford cloth or something with a texture is fine - but you aren't going to find many contrast collar shirts in textured fabrics.
Keep it for suits.
I love contrast collar but with suits.
The last time anyone pulled this off was in late 60's Rolling Stones PR pics. And, not with sleeves rolled up.
Wearing contrast collars AT ALL? Always reminds me of the lovely gents from Boston Legal.
I had to do this once because I couldn't do laundry and all I had available was a contrast collar shirt. Don't do it, it looks awful. I had to buy another shirt that day
I did it yesterday: jeans, contrast collar, linen sc, suede saddle shoes. Imma Bowse.
Well at least you were wearing a SC. OP was talking about rolled up sleeves...
A coworker used to wear contrast collar everyday it was silly. So no, not really a huge fan either here.
