    I personally think that they should not be worn at all, but that is my prejudice.

    If you don't have the neck to wear a high contrast collar, I say stay away. Those low things are wimpy.

    Wait, you smell that?
    Are the shirts by RLPL typically this slim fitting or do these models have the shirts pin back tight against their bodies?

    I think the shirt material looks real nice with the white collar. Too bad the shirts don't actually fit like that.

    Though I usually prefer contrast collars to be accompanied by contrast French cuffs as well.

    I agree with the contrasting french cuffs. I think these suits work best with a dark dressy suit, but they can work with a navy blazer and dress slacks as well.

    I think that combo on the page is awful.

    I have that same shirt, but in solid pink rather than white-on-blue stripes. Sadly, it is not nearly as fitted on me - it's definitely pinned in the picture.

    I like Rl's stuff, but that tight shirt coupled with those pleated pants make him look like a bowling pin. I usually see the collar in business environment, or maybe I'm just with the wrong crowd.

    Are you sure that's not a pleated skirt? [​IMG]

    I usually like to have worn collars/cuffs replaced at least once so that's how I've ended up with all of my contrasting collar/cuff shirts. Occasionally the original material will no longer be available making white the only option. Seems to happen most often with T&A. They're nice for a change of pace.

    That's a great look tomasso--A look that I favor---its not over-the-top, yet it speaks of seriousness, not foppishness.

    Tomasso a good tip and great style. The ties are the same silk pattern who are they made by?

    I like that purple! Just sell Ralph Lauren your picture, looks better than the ad.
