    I kind of think that jacket requires a BD collar.

    It looks good, stitchy. The striped jacket from a couple of days back was awful.

    stitches, I think the colours are good, but that shirt is too formal... agree on the OCBD.

    Well, I mean it is a sportcoat, to me sportcoats should always be worn with an OCBD.

    What about a soft roll collar with no buttons?

    Meh. I don't know if it is a "rule", I just think there is something comforting about the look of an OCDB with a sportcoat. Can't explain it really.

    I guess it's their casual nature. I love them with sportcoats too, though I don't think they are the only option.

    I assume that means you feel the same way about mine.

    While I guess this is the blind backing the blind (though stich is now less blind than me), I agree with stich on the spread collar with SC being ok.
