That's gotta be a troll post.
First time I'm posting in this thread, x-post from WAYWRN.....
Got me thinking:
RD - given that it's a SC, I think a solid navy or brown knit would just hit the spot. It's not that your wool tie looks bad with the SC, it's just a tad more dressy. Wearing a knit instead makes the shirt a little less out of place.
Thanks for the feedback UBR and Manton. Since I'm forced to repeat outfits quite often, I will make sure to wear a solid blue shirt (or tie) with this next time
Much prefer the High look.
Let me help:
The top stitching is way too close to the edge of the collar & cuffs, imo. I like 1/4", I even have some 1/8", but those are pushing it.
: ) I think I have two like this (didn't specify; tailor came up with it), but the point of the pic was to show the fabric.
Edge stitching is a thing. I universally dislike it but I don't think it's wrong per se. The reason it stands out so much here is the more casual / textured cloth.

Safe but good Charlie.
It's supposed to be advantageous in that it avoids the edge curling you sometimes see on shirt collars. You can stick a collar stay right to the edge, after all. I think Kabbaz has also said it "lengthens" the collar by making it look larger without actually having to add any extra material. I'll be honest and say I'm a bit more skeptical of that claim, but perhaps it can depend on the type of stitch count and fabric we're comparing this against.
I hate the square.
